I took my elderly mother to this restaurant for lunch today at 1pm. Although some aspects of the experience were good, there were a number of things we were not at all happy about. We had a long wait for both the main course and the dessert. For the main course, my mother had duck breast and I had the pork fillet. My mother's duck was extremely tough. I mentioned this to a waiter and asked for a steak knife, which he brought. This enabled my mother to cut it but she could not chew it. I tried it and found it extremely tough and almost unchewable. When a different waiter collected our plates, I again commented that my mother's duck was extremely tough and she could not eat it. He said he would say something to the chef. I don't know whether or not he did but he did not come back to us about it and no compensation or alternative was offered.
My pork was satisfactory but I was very surprised that both main courses were served with the vegetables and mine was smothered in sauce/gravy. I would expect a good restaurant to serve the vegetables separately so that one can help oneself.
We each had a small glass of Pinot Grigio, which was good but overpriced.
On the plus side, the puddings were good. I had cheese and biscuits and my mother had the sticky toffee pudding.
However, all in all, our lunch experience was not a good one and was certainly not good value for £57.
