The Baron's Manor is a neighbourhood pub in Langley. Recently under new management, with an improved menu of quality pub fare. Never miss a game on one of our many HDTV's and enjoy nightly drink and dinner specials as well as game night specials.
Went on a Saturday night - place was more than half empty. Not a good first impression. The builidng itself was a nice old heritage house and nicely decorated but that's where it ends. Whatever you do , don't sit upstairs. There's no washroom up there and so if you're drinking, you're up and down the stairs all night - plus I think the wait staff forgets you're there.
We sat down and though there was a food menu, there were no drink menus or wine lists. We waited OVER 20 minutes before we were even apporached by a waitress. I had to ask for a wine list and then she had to go all the way downstairs to get one and then back up. Cocktails were exspensive and if there were any specials we weren't told about them.
Now for the food. Food seemed to come whever, regardless of who ordered when. The burgers were very thin and skimpy and the salmon burger was just weird. It was a thin salmon filet piece on top of the open bun, so that there was over half the bun not covered. It was just placed down the middle. It was not reall a burger. I had to cut it in half and rearrange it on the bun in order to make it a burger. The salmon was quite fishy tasting and some of the skin was still on so it was kinda gross, The fries were good though. However, portion sizes were uneven and some people got a ton of fries and other had very few. Not good for customers. Also, someone ordered onion rings and when they were served they were ice cold. They were sent back and all they did was rebatter and refry the already made cold rings. YUK. They were not eaten again. Why would they do that? They were therefore comped but so they should have been. Many of the ordered were incomplete, i.e. burgers with no lettuce/tomato etc. When you're short staffed already it would make sense to get the food orders correct so your wait staff isn't running up and down the stairs with food complaints.
Anyway, if I had to go back with a group or whatever, I'd go, but I'd never voluntarily go there again. There's too many good places to waste time and money at places like this. We left around 10 and there were only about 4 tables full of people. That's really the review in itself no?
Went on a sunday afternoon and the food was not good. Our waiter was good, friendly and helpful so gave him a solid rating. I had the steak sandwich, very skinny, asked for rare and got hockey puck. My wife had broccoli soup, and it tasted like flour. we wont be back
On September 22,2012 - The Baron's Manor Pub was our venue for our 30 year class reunion. We were thrilled with the level of service and hospitality that we received throughout the entire evening. From the Staff helping us set up at the beginning of the evening right through to the very end of the night we received exceptional service. Our sincere thanks to everyone at the Baron's Manor pub for making our 30 reunion a success. I received rave reviews about the restaurant and would recommend this restaurant for anyone planning a special event.
My husband and I decided to try this restaurant as we had a 2 for one coupon. We showed the it to the server right away, and she didn't seem to have had one before, but she took it. They didn't have my wine, so I ordered something else. My husband ordered a ginger ale, with not much ice. When it came, it was 2/3's full of ice, and they had the nerve to charge us $3.75 for it. My dinner said on the menu that it came with seasonal vegetables. I had ordered the chicken with mushrooms, and asked for the mashed potatoes instead of the pasta. The server had to go and ask the manager about that, anyway, he said it was OK. When my dinner came, it had one side of a very small chicken breast, garlic bread, a few mushrooms and potatoes. No vegetables, so I told the server that it was supposed to come with vegetables and she tried to say that the mushrooms were the vegetables. She did go and get some carrots and peppers. Now this meal was priced at $14.95, I know we had a coupon, but how would I know if it would be different if I paid full price. Also, my meal had no sauce on it, so I asked for a little gravy, after about 10 minutes the server did bring a nice cheesy sauce. The whole time we were there, we felt uncomfortable, we felt like the coupon was a problem. We go out all the time, so we do spend money at restaurants. We use coupons sometimes, and if we like the restaurant, we will go back over and over without coupons. My husband's meal was pretty good, but given our experience I doubt we will be back. In my opinion, they need to lower their prices, and get more "pub food" in there, and they would probably get more customers in the door. I would say for the manager to go to the Guildford Station Pub and see what they are doing right. The atmosphere there is really good, and they are always busy.
