When we arrived the car park was almost empty and I initially thought the place was closed. however, we met our friends and ordered lunch. When the roast turkey arrived there was so much gravy you could have mistaken it for soup. The gravy was very salty and the turkey tasteless. The stuffing was completely missing and when queried we were told "it isn't cooked yet, do you want a Yorkshire pudding instead?" No apology when the food was delivered that there had been an error, I assume it was thought we wouldn't notice. There was no rocket for the salads and the coffee machine was broken. The (young and inexperienced) waitresses did make the best of a bad job however and no criticism can be levelled against them. A waiter though showed complete disinterest when told that cash payment had been left on the table.
The last time I was here, about 18 months ago, the car park was full and all the tables occupied, this time an almost empty car park and few patrons. I think that says it all.
