Went there for a family diner in June 2013, 4 diners.
It looks like a village pub restaurant, feels like one, but that's about where the similarity ends.
I was served a chicken that fought a fight too many, side salad in my dish also had better days.
One of us had sausages with mashed potatoes: mash was - IMOH - clearly make from ready-made mash, the jus had an industrial quality about it...
2 French diners and 2 British ones concurred: this was an exercise in reheated food, not a locally cooked diner. And we are not talking about extravagant specialties here: chicken breast with mustard sauce is not exactly taxing to prepare fresh. Nor is a potato mash.
I don't know if this was a particularly bad day – as other reviewers seem to have enjoyed their meals, but this was a symphony in blandness. We were shocked at the lack of ambition in the cooking, even with pub grub standards in mind.
After dining at the Foresters Arms in Goose Street the day before, this was a real let down. We ate excellent locally-prepared stuff in the Forrester, with great and friendly service, and paid something like £3 more for our meal there.
Service was acceptable but uninvolved.
