2nd time only at this restaurant. I waited so that I could judge it on an average rather than a once only visit. The first visit impressed me. The food was OK and represented good value for the payment made. The bitter was really good at only £1.90 a pint. I had the ham and eggs with new potatoes(cannot eat chips) and the ham was a good portion as too were the potatoes. The egg was cooked properly with no burnt edges and a runny yolk. Staff were very nice and the whole lunch time ran smoothly and getting back to work on time was not a problem.
The 2nd time was totally different. There was insufficient staff to cope with the number of customers,making a waiting time to order food about 10 minutes and a further wait for the service of about 15 minutes. The beer price was back up to around £2.60 and due to some break down of one of the cooking appliances, they were unable to provide eggs with the ham and egg item on the menu. There was no mention of a reduction in the price even when I asked for it. My suggestion was met with a sullen, "No Chance" reply. Apparently the egg cooking arrangement had been "down" for a day or two. Why oh why could not a bit of initiative be used and the manager buy a good size frying pan or skillet and get those eggs back on the menu.
Staff were not too friendly so I guess that they were all working hard because of the lack of help.
