My husband and I had lunch here- we had been before, but not recently. My husband had Gurnard with a mussel sauce and I had chicken with chorizo,chickpeas and wilted spinach. My husband remarked that his fish was 'over-seasoned' - I tried it- it was so salty- totally overpowering- so much so that he couldn't eat it. The rest of the dish was fine- delicious in fact. When the waitress asked if everything was all right, he told her that he couldn't eat the fish as it was too salty. He did say, however that the rest of the dish was delicious.She said she would 'pass it on'. Rather a disappointing reaction- no offer to rectify the situation other than that. Maybe it was our fault, that we weren't forceful enough, demanding a replacement meal (we don't like complaining!). Also, my spinach was rather sandy- clearly not washed properly. I didn't bother mentioning this either as the rest of my meal was delicious too. The fish however, was much more significant, being the main part of the dish! We then ordered coffees-perhaps the perfect opportunity to offer them 'on the house' as a means of redeeming themselves? No such luck! Often a place can turn a negative around by dealing with an issue in a certain way, thereby encouraging the customer to return. We didn't leave a tip. All that said the staff and particularly the waitress were really friendly and welcoming- we would like to have left her a tip, but unfortunately the salty fish was too much to overlook! Equally the pub has a lovely atmosphere and was busy, especially for a Monday lunchtime. Despite this rather negative review, we would consider returning. I just hope that the owners might reconsider how they deal with certain situations!
