It's a lovely pub and great setting with nice terrace and garden but we were very disappointed with the food and service - we had booked the table on a recommendation and were meeting friends for a special lunch and felt let down.
We waited 1 hour 15 minutes for our food after ordering and when it came it was extremely average, especially given the high (higher than some London!) prices. The worst thing was the burger buns were stale! How can you be given hard, dried stale bread and be expected not to mind??? The salad advertised as having pine nuts, among other ingredients, had none and we had to send it back to have the pine nuts put on.
We complained and asked for an explanation and something was muttered about the chef being away and the sous chef being in charge - we didn't see how this excused it! They need another sous chef if he can't tell when bread is fresh or read his own menu.
90% of my reviews are positive and I really don't like giving negative feedback, but really, some people are there own worst enemies, if you describe yourselves as serving excellent quality food and service then do it - or don't be surprised to read reviews like this.
Oh, and we weren't offered compensation of any form for the ridiculously long wait for sub-standard food!
