Our lunchtime visit to Ludgvan's White Hart began well, but ended in disappointment. When we arrived the barman/waiter was friendly and attentive, and took the order for our party of four, but then disappointment began to set in. We were the only customers, and saw nobody else apart from the Caterfood man making a delivery.
Two of us ordered steaks (only rump was on the menu) which were considerably smaller than we're accustomed to; one was over-done (to paraphrase Rick Stein, cooking a piece of meat isn't rocket science), and at £15 each, over-priced. One member of the party wanted only ham sandwiches, and neither ordered nor wanted the chips and salad which arrived with them. Perhaps they were there in an attempt to justify the £9 price!
At a little before 2.30 (the sign outside proclaimed that food was being served until 2.30) we tried to place an order for desserts but were told by the barman/waiter that the chef had gone home. We thought of asking him why on earth he hadn't thought of mentioning this while we were taking our time studying the desserts menu, but then thought “what's the point”?
Will we return? No.
