We arrived to be greeted with a very warm welcome, I was thinking this was the start of a great evening.
We took our drinks to the table and looked at the menu, it looked really good
We skipped the starter after I had seen the puddings online.
After a while we were told there wouls be a delay due to a large booking (12)?
We were offerd complementary bread, still thinking what a great place , it is a very nice looking place and the music was at really good level (there is a reason why it' s called background music, don't know what the other reviewer was thinking?)
We had now been here 45 minutes, I did ask if the lamb would be pink, sometimes Health and stupid saftey goes to far, I was told of course it will.
My wifes meal arrived, she said it was delicious and then I saw my duck. Oops!!!
It was not pink, even my wife was quite amused, I decided not to say anything because we had waited so long I was starting to eat my own hand.
It tasted ok and was very presented so I thought this must be a mistake, that was until I saw the ducks going to the table of 12 they were the same.
Till being positive I was thinking about the puddings.
Mine was ok my wife was really shocked........she had asked for the dark chocolate and cherry mouse. We eat out quite a lot and my wife usually has a mouse and so do I.
It was like instant whip and it cost £6.95.........I had a tast, it was not dark chocolate.
On the table of 12 a lady was crying about an event with a waitress, I also noted it was nearly 10 minutes from the first to the last customer.
It's such a shame because it is a really nice place but in today's social media world you cannot afford to make a mistake.
Maybe I have fortunate enough to eat at some really great restaurants so my bar was set to high.
Would not recommend to a friend, others who knows
My wife and I would not go back and will stick to what we know and trust.
