We visited for lunch on Saturday, having left the nearby pub The Achor fearing it was too busy - what a mistake!
We were not shown to a table on arrival, so unfortunately sat in the area without table service. We ordered at the bar, but our first choice, the wild boar burger, was not available which they didn't tell us. In its place we ordered the rump burger 'medium rare' to be told it's not actually cooked to order as it's a 'pattie'. The menu says all grills come with 'onion rings', but my husbands rump burger came with just one (small) onion ring. We checked the menu and questioned it, to which we were told they only ever serve one onion ring. It was just strange.
We also ordered a side of carrots, which came in a bowl with sauce smeared on the edges.
In general, the food was fine, and presentation poor.
Positively, the waitress behind the bar was friendly and helpful.
Sorry, by we won't be coming back.
