My wife and I went today with my elderly in-laws : we wanted a lunchtime place where we could have a main course or 2 starters with soft drinks for £30 or so, and with a pleasant ambiance. Many places in this area have basic mains for a minimum of £10 which for a weekday lunch is overpriced IMHO. The less expensive pubs/restaurants often suffer from a standard of surroundings which is below par
This is a light and airy place in a fine location, with a large area for parking. You order at the counter and take the drinks to your table, while the food arrives later. Nice informal feel to the interior room while there are good views from the Conservatory
We ordered 2 types of soup - hot and tasty - a goats cheese salad (very good) with some hot muffins/barms
5 Stars? Well not quite
There appear to be no menus apart from a salad menu (which has no prices). It's all on a board - which is in the main area, not in the Conservatory. If you're with people who need to sit down - elderly or disabled for example - then you either have to write it all down or keep running between the 2 rooms while you try to remember. Funnily enough, there is also a menu issue with the other place we eat in Gisburn!
In these days of PCs, printers and laminators, could do better
The service was less friendly than I might have liked. The card machine wasn't working - OK it happens - but it's not customer friendly handing back a Scottish £10 note as change for 2 English £20s
Will definitely be back though - very nice place and very good food
