The Lion and Lamb pub restaurant review, Little Canfield, Dunmow, Essex

Lion and Lamb pub restaurant Little Canfield Essex

Lion and Lamb pub restaurant Little Canfield Essex

One would like to hope that the meal and service we had at this pub/restaurant, was a one off disaster, but I don’t think we will be back to find out I am afraid.

Having been recommended this restaurant for quality food and a relaxed atmosphere, we stopped after a day of sightseeing, and hoped for exactly that, but it wasn’t to be.

Firstly, we ordered starters of prawn cocktail and cream of vegetable soup. Michael got his prawns and I was left sitting there with nothing. Our waitress who took our order glanced at our table, and so I hoped she was off to get my soup, but she wasn’t. We had to ask in the end, and it arrived shortly afterwards. They forgot the bread, so I asked for that, and was offered a roll, which I had to put directly on the table cloth as I had no plate, so I asked for a plate and some butter, which came quickly but the butter was rock hard it was so chilled. The prawns seemed like the sort that would have come from a frozen packet and my soup was average.

We were then told that there was no pork left, which we had both ordered. At this point, we had no choice but to order the beef. It was very poor for the price, and the potatoes were hardly roasted at all and it was smothered in gravy, virtually like a soup. When I tried a little of my beef on its own, I realised why – it was cold! I didn’t eat mine. I was so fed up by this point. When we asked for the bill, they took my hardly touched plate of food, and didn’t even bother to ask me if I didn’t like it, or if there was a problem. We paid in full, but will not return.

However, it does look like a busy pub/restaurant for food, so hopefully this is not the service or food that everyone receives.
