The food was terrible, they had run out of ingredients to make some of the dishes! I had a bacon, blue cheese on a bed of lettuce, there was no lettuce, so instead I had 6 sprigs of spinach and a huge tablespoon of mayo dolloped around the plate. We then waited close on an hour for the main course, fish & chips with mushy peas, fish cake, new potatoes. No mushy peas emerged, apparently they had run out, home cooked chips were overcooked frozen chips with a overcooked fish, so dry it must surely have been left out the hour we had to wait for it to be delivered. Fish cake was oily, new potatoes dry and wrinkled
Really terrible food, and at £24 it was an insult to be charged for it all, I should have been paid to eat it !!! Yes we did say it wasn't satisfactory, only to be assured that they'd been busy (not for much longer if thats whats served)
