Twenty years ago we held our wedding lunch here on a perfect summer's day in early July and it was a memorable experience. Having moved back into the area, we decided to celebrate our anniversary by having dinner on what turned out to be another beautiful day. What a mistake. The place seems to have turned into a corporate trap for people who think that price equals quality. Our starters were boring but just acceptable. We all chose fish for the main course, two sole and one wild sea trout. All the fish was overcooked and dry. The vegetables were overcooked and soggy. We complained and were offered free puddings. Two of us accepted. An ice-cream was forgotten and the staff had to be reminded. An unintersting lemon tart had burnt pastry. On top of this there was a slight smell of drains everywhere. What a disappointment.
