We had found the Raven Pub on our Living Socials deals, and as we like to try out new places, we went there for dinner around 8pm.
The pub looked as you would expect any neighbourhood pub to look, and was relatively rowdy and busy.
The waitress was fast to ask us for our drinks, and immediately took our Living Socials voucher which we'd left on the table, and the drinks were not too long. So far, so good. And that was as far as good went.
Our drinks showed up, and after a sip, my partner was surprised at the taste of the ginger ale - which wasn't ginger ale at all. As we waited for our waitress to come back, we started noticing a loud high repetitive squeaking noise; possible from the dish washer?
Like the sound of dripping water, an intermittent but unrelenting noise... We moved tables, but to no avail.
We couldn't find our waitress so asked another one whether this was ginger ale. She said they had run out. I'm not sure what they had given us instead. When our food showed up, after roughly 1/2 hour, we were so irritated by the noise that we asked for the food to be wrapped up. We didn't see the food, or the waitress, for another 15 minutes. I heard another guest ask why their food was taking so long, and the waitress said they were very busy. I had to ask for the bill, and then ask for them to redo the bill and apply the voucher.
We tried the food at home, and I'm sorry to say that the bacon around the bacon-wrapped-scallops was very tough and they were rather flavourless. The crab cakes were inedible and the sauce seemed to be mayo mixed with butter.
Our garbage can ate most of it. We will not go back.
