Just had the Sunday roast, and it was awful.  What's up with the beef?  Extremely well done, tough, one thick slice (think gammon), and it looked like that slice had been browned in a pan.  Trimmings were nothing special either (bland spuds, freezer Yorkshire pud?). We hadn't eaten today, so we ate it.  The smarter move was to return it, which we saw two other parties do. I don't like leaving bad reviews, but the new owner needs to get on top of this.  There's been a problem here for a while, as the last time we were there (sometime mid-2018) I had to send back the risotto (undercooked and crunchy), which was only the second time in my life I've sent back a meal. So if I wasn't so hungry today, 2 out of 3 of my returns would have been at the Whitford Five Stags!  This is not, IMO, a case of just revamping the menu.  Hopefully the new chap is up to the task: we'll give it another go down the line, as this place was excellent back in 2017.

Had a lovely meal here last week. I wanted something light fresh and healthy and that’s what I got. The salmon was spot on and the vegetables and salad were perfectly cooked. Simple but right. Think my brother enjoyed his burger, it was all gone! The staff were super friendly and it was a nice place for a summer meal.

I have been here 2wice and love the rustic - country feel. I always get good friendly service here from everyone. The food is presented well and overall a good place to be especially in a large group. They dont have good wifi coverage inside so dont bother and just enjoy your company.
