I am really sorry to have to write this review, as everything I've read and heard about this place has been superb.
I'll start with the good points. The staff are amazing, so friendly, couldn't do enough for you. The drinks menu, whilst limited, is amazing value for money. The portions are huge, and altogether for 2 people with 3 courses each plus wine the bill was £54 - very reasonably priced.
All of this would suggest an excellent dining experience. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say the chef was having an off day! Unfortunately, the food was just abysmal. Chicken liver pâté that left a chemical aftertaste; mushrooms swimming in water; a 'battered haddock' that was limp, greasy and tasteless; a mixed grill with a lamb chop that was 90% gristle and a chicken breast too tough to chew and bloody inside. The only saving graces were the steak with the mixed grill which was cooked to perfection, and the chips. Even the slices of lemon in our water had clearly been stored with the salad items as they tasted of onion!
As I said, judging by the rest of the reviews here they must have had an off night, but I'm afraid to say I will never be going back to Baby Russets.

We usually don't respond to all the reviews on here even though we are so grateful for everyones comments and feedback. However this review we feel is a little harsh saying that our food is "abysmal" as on this particular evening you were asked throughout your meal if everything was ok and never suggested that there were any problems with your meal whatsoever and everything was consumed on each course. If you had raised any concerns we would have done everything to put it right and to try to make everything as lovely as possible for you. We are sorry that you've decided not to visit us again as we value everyones custom but thank you anyway for your feedback.
