To get back to the "Romper" The chef at the Romper is also at the Duke of York in Romiley that also does Turkish, Med style food which is also very good and maybe a little cheaper.
Upon seeing the shadow of a PIDGIN  one should resist the urge to look up.

Dropped by the Romper yesterday.  A nice pint of Black Sheep, although it's now £2.80.   :'(

However, there was a notice by the bar announcing that the pub would be closed on Friday 26 June for a private function.   

This doesn't seem right to me.  I reckon there are two key features which define the Great British Pub:

  • You can just have a drink (without food) and not feel out of place, and
  • Anyone can drop in for a drink during its normal opening hours

It's perfectly normal for a pub to have a function room, or occasionally to close off one or two rooms for a private function, but a pub is called a pub because it is a public house - not a private one!

I think it makes sense to close it to the public if its a wedding party  of a large enough scale .

I know if I went up there for a drink, and probably couldnt get served for ages due to a wedding then I would be frustrated., and I think with the lay out of the Romper inside they have done the right thing .   I bet it will be just  lovely for a wedding party :)  and even more so if the sun is shining .  I hope they do well from it :)

I had my wedding reception at Almonds , most of my husbands family are from down south, so they came up for the friday and the saturday, and basicly the wedding party took over the place for the whole weekend , booked all the hotel rooms,  it was just brilliant ., and the service was first class,  food was brill,  and our wedding day was just fantastic there  ...

* sighs * ... such a shame its gone now :(  as there is deffo a lack of places to have  a party with accomodation on our doorstep  now

Whether its a wedding, a bar-mitzvah or a hunt ball is neither here nor there. 

people don't seem to be botherd when its the quiz nights or funtion nights!

No they aren't bothered, because anyone can go along and take part in a pub quiz or function (or not, as they wish).  But next Friday, there will almost certainly be a few people who aren't aware of the closure, and who pop up to the Romper for a Friday night drink and a bite to eat, only to be turned away.  And next time they'll think twice and go somewhere else.   Which is not good for business.   :( That's all.

Too true.  In terms of quality of food, efficient service and a warm welcome, there is nowhere that comes close to The Romper.

Mmm, I'll have to think about that!  I like the food in the Romper - the Meditterranean (spelling?) menu makes a nice change from what's on offer elsewhere.  But I reckon there are other pubs in the area where the food's at least  as good - and they don't charge £2.80 a pint for the beer!   

Just Saying!

We went up to the Romper for lunch yesterday and had a nice meal  :)

However, as always seems to be the case these days, it was the service which let them down. 
They weren't busy, whilst we were there they only had 1 other table of 2 eating and 1 guy stood at the bar.  There was someone working on the bar and a waiter, even with 2 staff they couldn't look after us. 

We sat for 20 minutes plus with no drinks, the kitchen closed and we weren't asked if would like a dessert and then we had to get up and go to the bar to pay because there was nobody around.  We could have walked out and no one would have noticed.  At no point whilst we were there, were we asked "if everything was alright".

What a shame........  ???
