The Elms Crown Carvery, Aldridge

This is The Elms renamed, refurbished, and a Crown Carvery. It’s still a pub: the bar area is fairly seperate (and still has the annoying people standing at it so you can’t get a drink), but three quarters of the pub is a carvery restaurant. You get what you’d expect: a large, slightly canteen like bit at the back, but a few quiet corners. Plenty of families and pensioners.

For what it is, it’s not too bad. The food’s OK, the beer drinkable but not fantastic, and the prices are amazingly low. Stunningly low. Just don’t go expecting haute cuisine, fantastic beer, or loads of atmosphere. The staff were pleasant enough, and overall not a bad experience. Basically, it’s a damn sight better than the last time I visited, though being worse would be hard.

  2. Hi Rob

    Your caps lock key is stuck. So is Harry‘s, who commented 9 minutes later from the same IP address.

    I’ve not been in either of those pubs for a while, but I’ve never seen any drug-taking in the Cedar Tree. I’ve not been inclined to try the carvery at The Elms again either.

  3. Today,(6-06-13). got to be one of the worst meals I have ever had in a carvery. The carrots were like bullets, the roast potatoes were leftovers from the previous day and reheated. The knife would hardly penetrate the tough skin,I finished up scraping the soft potatoe out of the skin and leaving the unchewable skin. I protested to the manager but he did not seem interested.That is the last time I eat there, roll on Witherspoons opening at the Avion. B.Harris.
