I noticed from its website that this pub restaurant offers a $12.50 prime rib & yorkshire pudding Sunday dinner. Has anyone tried? How is it? What about other dinner options there? Thanks!
I'm a big fan of Robin Hood, but I have to say the roast and Yorkshire pudding were a bit disappointing. The Yorkshire pudding tasted like it had been pre-made and then warmed up or held under a heat lamp. It was a bit dry and stale. The roast was a little overdone too. I highly recommend going for the F.E.B., though. They have the best bangers in town. Fish and chips is also good.
My fiance used to live a couple of blocks from here, but since we moved in together we've only been infrequently in the past two years. We only hit up the Robin Hood when we take our cars in to be serviced in the Valley. I think the last time we went was six months ago (when I got the roast and Yorkshire pudding, and incidentally I sprained my ankle that day... I think it was all related... too many pints), so I can't attest to a quality decline in recent days. I'd definitely recommend getting the FEB or the bangers and mash (anything involving bangers, really). I think they deep-fry them... whatever they do, they're far superior to what I've had at other pubs in town (Cat & Fiddle, Fox & Hounds, Kings Head, etc.) Don't let them pawn off that A-1 steak sauce on you, either. They try to do that. Specify HP sauce, and a side of English mustard.
Fish and chips are a little tempura-like -- not what I was used to, having lived in London, but still tasty. Anyplace that serves mushy peas is A-OK with me, though.
