This has always been a great place to eat but lately something has changed. There is a new menu which is much less appealing and some of the sensible favourites have gone. Why remove the tasting plate which was always great? Why not just change what was on it? Many of the new dishes are poorly designed. For example, sides are usually shared. However, new lettuce side dish cannot physically be shared due to poor design. Sides were presented without any serving utensils. Are we supposed to use our own knife and fork in the serving dish? Yuck. I asked for serving utensils for sides and was given one fork and spoon which was apparently meant to be shared amongst all the sides. More requests and eventually got more forks and spoons. Then had to request knife to cut up lettuce salad because it consisted of 2 large iceberg lettuce leaves stuck in a bowl, yes seriously, so we couldn't share it without upending it out of the bowl onto a plate and then cutting it up with the hard to obtain knife.
Whoever designed and styled the latest menu must have been the work experience student.
