Wow what a disappointment. After reading all the rave reviews I booked in November for my Partners birthday. I booked a £17.95 for three courses,
On attending I was met by a very talkative man who just did not shut up. He was very good at telling us how good his restaurant was and how others in the area had gone down in his opinion. This was the start of an overbearing man.
Well he recommended taking his al a carte menu as his three course menu had been dummied down for the xmas trade and would not show what his restaurant was about.
As we had expected £17.95 for three courses we were met with the xmas menu for three courses was at over £20 we were a little disappointed straight away. Well it’s the partner’s birthday I told her that it was a special occasion and just to pick what she wanted.
She chose a soup for starter followed by a risotto and lemon desert. Wow was she disappointed. My partner can cook and she could have done better with the starter, it was bland and tasteless, I do know as I tried it. On the second course the risotto was like rice pudding, and the desert did not get much better as she left over half of it. A real shame as we do like our meals out.
I must sat in the only positive was my Muscle starter , my main of Braised steak main was tasty but a very small portion and desert was basic, Nothing g to write home about.
As you can see from my reviews I normally give credit where credit was due, however on finishing the meal and asking for the bill the waitress asked if we liked the meal to fill in the Highlife review card and they would send them off on our behalf.
Needless to say the cards were left on the table without any remarks.
A disappointing meal I wish I had gone elsewhere, I so wanted to like the place.
