Unusually, I have read the other reviews before writing this one. Normally I just steam ahead. There is such a polarity here I wonder if people are writing about the same place but on further reflection I think I can understand.
The young man who served us behind the bar was absolutely brilliant. We popped in for lunch having been attracted by the offer of Philipino food as well as UK food. I had a very generous shoulder of lamb, and other half had a sea bass cooked Philipino style.
I popped into the admittedly clean toilet but noticed something I've never seen before in an establishment such as this in the Western Hemisphere, the toilet had no seat. There was the porcelain in all its glory so those gentlemen were small bottoms would simply slip down. I was too surprised to ask what had happened to it, not the sort of thing you ask in such a place so maybe someone stole it in the night.
I think I can understand the negative comments. Graham who I assume was the joint owner appeared behind the bar. He showed no reaction whatsoever to me, no smile, no welcome, no nothing. This is one unhappy guy. It is not my business to guess why, but the simple fact is that he just does not like people.
This is the type of business where you need to like people or at least fake an interest in them but in this case so far as I was concerned he did not bother to make the effort for reasons we shall never know.
They do a good Sunday lunch for £7.95 and I think I may well make a return for what I say again was an excellent meal experience.
I paid £36.35 for two generous main courses, drinks, and an utterly over the top chocolate treacle pudding with lashings of custard.
