This restaurant is in a b&b and some of the guests were eating there. One table of guests started playing card games between their courses. Not really the type of activity you'd expect to see in a restaurant offering top class meals.
Anyway, we ordered our food; I had the asparagus starter, the asparagus was under cooked and tough to eat and my quails eggs were hard boiled and the sauce was luke warm, my other half had the sea food medley, samon, prawns and crab, the crad looked like it had been blended and looked like a mouse, such a shame the crab was treated this way, it should have been left a lone with only a slice of lemon to accompany it.
The next course we both had the pork loin with mustard coating, you could hardly taste the mustard, the asparagus this time was over cooked and my dauphinoise potatoes were so badly burnt on the base.
Fort desert I had the chocolate and orange tart and could not taste the slightest hint of orange.
The presentation was perfect but the cooking of the food lacked care and flavour.
The wine by the glass options are also very limited where there are only 1 white, 1 red & 1 rose options to choose from.
For £70 we'd expect a lot better in terms of flavour, care in cooking and atmosphere, and no card playing guests please.

if you would have mentioned to us that something is wrong with your meal we would happily offer you another meal or offer you discount.
We are in progress to improve our wine list to offer more options to choose from.
As for the meal we are sorry that it wasnt up to your expectations.
The dishes you have complained about are the most popular dishes on the menu and have had a great reviews on them.
We believe the customers playing cards were not effecting any other tables in the restaurant and I think your comment about them playing cards has no reflection on our restaurant.
