Soup Dragon left this review about Parson & Clerk Hotel
A detached Toby Carvery eatery and pub, next to a Travel Lodge, in cream render and painted brick, with wood beams and red paintwork and patio area
The interior is an open plan L-shaped room with partitioned areas and the carvery area being straight ahead of you when you enter. It is of course mainly set out for food, with tables served by chairs, comfy seats and brown sofas. The decor is typical for this kind of place really; chocolate brown, green, coffee, cream wood panel, the token wallpapered wall (crean and black) and some undressed brick. The ceiling is white and cream. There are a few raised areas and brick fireplaces or hearth features. The main interest, as with most Toby's, are the eclectic range of photos, adverts, fun pictures etc that adorn the walls. As such it is a blend of old and new, but really, at this Toby, you come to eat, not just drink. The music was general and at a decent level, the service was fine and a few people were scattered about eating - so different to the place of the 80s i went to. Silent TVs had the news on, as well.
Beer; tap stuff with Brew XI and Pedigree on handpull. The Brew was passable.
Not the best Toby i have visited, but it does the job i am sure - i didn't eat here, so can't comment on that, but i would rather eat at others i have visited, this one was a little bland.
