We popped in here for a lunch on bank holiday Monday.
The actual ambiance of the place is great, but from the start the service was shocking. The drinks were not confirmed or given to us until we ordered our meals. Half an hour for drinks. At least 45 minutes for our starters. I had overcooked prawns and the OH had camembert with a totally undressed salad.
We both chose steak medium rare for our main. It was very fatty and not very tasty, just dull.
It took 3 attempts to get our wobbly table sorted out and we got so fed up of waiting for the bill that I went up and paid in the end. It took us close to three hours to eat a (£70!) two course lunch due to the neglect...
We won't bother with this place again unless it is to sit outside and have a coffee. The gent next to us had just a coffee and a brandy and was there for ages trying to get the bill.
We are local and if this experience had been any good we would probably have visited regularly. We won't waste our time here again.
