We arrived at this charming place full of excitement about what promised to be a top rate meal. Sadly, it didn't pan out. Our "sharing plate" came with 4 tiny pieces of bread to be used on 4 slices of meat, hummus, oil, and a dip - it was advertised as "breads" with dips, charcuterie, etc.
Our mains were mixed - the lamb was good, as were the chips. However, the pork was extremely dry and tasteless, and the samphire had been oversalted and undercooked so that little sticks of it literally had me choking. All the items were overly "cute" - a dab of squash topped by a tiny potato and then a leek, for example.
The desserts were unappetizing - everything had to go just a bit too far with odd ice-cream flavors etc. We took a miss, even though we'd looked forward to dessert.
All this took nearly TWO HOURS to get, and nobody asked why we left food on our plates or if we'd enjoyed ourselves. I hate to rain on your parade folks who love this place. Maybe it's good for events, but FORGET the individual dinner.

Thank you for your review. We actually don't season our samphire, the salt is entirely from the vegetable itself. We don't have this vegetable on as a side dish, as it can be a little overwhelming so we were surprised when you requested it.

It was a real pity that you didn't try our dessert as they are sensational, all handmade.
