... to have such lovely food spoiled by poor service. And it all started so well! Starters and main courses for 4 of us were all wonderful (I had liver and bacon which was to die for). Desert menus were given out - and no-one came near us again. We waited for half an hour for our orders to be... More

As with most pubs/restaurants, the character of the venue changes depending on the day of the week, the weekend and time of year. Most of the time I quite like going for a cheeky beer/cider in the evening, but not at the weekend... then it is best to go with friends as it becomes a lot more 'consumptuous'! (Made up... More
