I have recently moved in to the village as my partner has lived here for a number of years. We have eaten here probably 6 times in the last year and every time something just isn't quite right. The building and tables look great and the open fires are fab when it's cold, but the service is inconsistent. The staff seem poorly trained and lacking in confidence. One needed to ask for help to split a tenner into 2 fives... They for the most part are friendly enough but we rarely see the same person twice.
And the food is ok. It's not as good as it thinks it is - I have had undercooked salmon which we sent back, a well done steak that was beyond crispy and mostly 'average' meals overall. It isn't awful and I don't think it's ridiculously overpriced, but it is a bit of a 'cant be bothered to cook' option rather than a 'fancy a nice meal out' option in our house.
