Evening set menu was lacking in finesse and presentation. Garlic Mushroom starter very creamy but lacked any contrasting flavours or even garlic! The home baked bread was 3 slices of ordinary white. The main of ham-a bacon chop, was cooked just right and had a well flavoured if thin gravy. But everything else was fried and doused in oil including the mange tout,fried potato and pan fried veg. The bacon and cabbage side was again fried and v oily The creamed mashed potato offered a small oasis from its oleagineous surroundings. The menu offered scallops, sea bass and vegetarian lasagne but they were presented without creativity or attention to detail. The food needs to have some fresh input and to show someone cares. The potential is huge. The cheerful, attentive and informal staff, combined with such a beautiful classic country house setting, could with the chef upping his game, become a much better restaurant and a food destination.
