We went to Cannards Well because of our Inn Keeper's recommendation as having a really nice steak and food. It was Thursday late afternoon and we were hoping to have an early dinner. First off, the bar/restaurant area was empty, except for a lady who we assumed was a guest of the hotel. The manager was friendly enough, but in the menu he provided, there was no mention of steak, having set my mind on it, I was a bit disappointed. I ended up ordering a burger instead. The presentation was nice, but that was the most horrible burger I have ever eaten :(. It didn't taste anything like a beef burger. There was a prominent vinegary taste which was not pleasant at all. We paid nearly £9 for it so I gritted my teeth, chewed and swallowed. It was a painful dinner for me. The Manager was also discussing money and issues about the guest of the hotel with a man whom we presume is the owner, but it was all within our earshot. The bar was pretty much empty save for 1 or 2 people who sauntered in and was clearly a regular, There was actually a couple who walked in while we were eating and walked straight out as soon as they saw what was inside. Maybe it was the time and the day of our visit. I am hoping that our case was an isolated one. But I'm afraid first impressions lasts, and we are definitely NOT coming back for the reasons stated earlier. :(
