It's dubbed a 'gastro pub' which I took to mean excellent food and service at restaurant prices. I'm happy to pay for good food and it was for a special occasion , albeit last minute.
Midweek , Tuesday and I had a 'Rack of Lamb', my partner had a chicken dish . I'm not greedy , but three very very small ribs from a lamb that clearly died of starvation is not my idea of enough. I mean if it was two ribs it wouldnt be a 'Rack' would it , so shouldn't it be four or more? Seriously the ribs were tiny and without the bones would have weighed about 5oz , that's a RIP OFF for £16.50. Thats not all as the 'jus' had not been reduced properly and was tasteless instead of 'intense'and the 'mash' had beed reheated so it was crispy ( and dry ) on top (not a cooking skill but reheated). Basically it was a disaster. Here are a few tips. If the ribs are so tiny , serve 4 or 5, it wont break the bank at these prices. Secondly check the food BEFORE its' sent out , even an amateur would have critised the 'jus' which was frankly embarrassing. Finally dont serve reheated mash , its just NOT ON. I don't complain , as others wont either, they just wont return !! By the way my partners meal was no better as the chicken was dry and the cabbage was almost raw , and yes we like our veg lightly cooked ( but not almost raw ) .
My advice is GO ELSEWHERE there are lots of better places nearby.
