We went for a birthday celebration, I thought I would have prawn cocktail as it said "Smiths prawn cocktail", so I thought it might be a little jazzy, but no, just a standard prawn cocktail, and very little of it!!! Then I had the Salmon, nice but very bland, was disappointed coming from this restaurant, as they are meant to be tip top with fish? The other members of our party loved their meals,(sea bass, Steak and surf and turf) so I think I just chose wrong, but I had Salmon a few nights before in Writtle and the Salmon was to die for, very tasty and fell off your fork???? I also asked for a slice of Gluten free bread, but sadly they didn't have any, and looked at me quite blankly, it is getting more common now??!!!! The staff were fantastic, and obviously have been trained to a high standard.. I would return, but would have something else off the menu..
