As mentioned in other reviews this restaurant is very quaint and traditional. The menu was varied and interesting, service was really friendly but as it was festival time it was a little slow (apologies were made for this though).
My starter of chicken pate was very good, pate was runny which was a bit of a first for me but actually seemed to work. Toast was burnt and bland and was just plain wholemeal bread, I would have liked to have seen some Brioche or Olive Foccacia, something other than dry burnt toast. My co-pilot had the soup which she felt was a little bland and she had to season accordingly, she mentioned that the bread it came with was very nice (I seem to remember this was a ciabatta of some kind).
For mains I had the lamb which was tasty and a big portion, probably could have filled 2 people. Vegetables were served separately and these were very nice. Roast Potatoes were as hard as a bullet, couldn't chew through them and had to leave them. I am sure they were very nice when first cooked but had been left warming for too long....schoolboy error. A note on the gravy, this was actually very very good and the yorkshire pudding was edible which isn't the case in 90% of meals with one included.
The other half had the tartlet which was nice, nothing off the chart, fries were a little chewy and again seemed to have been left standing.
Overall it was an OK meal. The restaurant had a lot of potential and I can imagine some of the other dishes were extra special but what we received was nothing memorable I am afraid. Service and everyone working in this place are really friendly and the food does really fill you up. I would also like to add that I would probably visit this restaurant again but when the festival wasn't on and probably order some different food.
