I really wanted to enjoy this meal as we used to frequent the restaurant a lot and it was excellent. However will not be going back in a hurry. The food was tasteless, we had the 'special starters' giant prawns in filo pastry but the pastry was thick and soggy. I had lamb shank which was tasteless, my mother in law had sea bass which been waiting under the grill we suspect for my meat, as it was dried up together with some blackened oven chips which we had asked instead of the potatoes. We sent the chips back and my mother in law asked for some butter to moisten the fish. The potatoes were served but without the vegetables which should have been standard.My husband said his pasta was nice but I don't think they have a professional cook/chef. The waiters were friendly and they did bring us coffees asking if it had made up for it. We had to dash off as was expecting a delivery but on our return home noticed that they had put a 10 per cent service charge on which was supposed to be optional. We certainly wouldn't have agreed to that.On this occasion the food was paid for in Tesco vouchers and I think they give preference to other non voucher customers. There are a lot of children having pizzas but unfortunately if you want anything else it's pretty hit and miss. I really want this restaurant to survive as it has the best location in the village but on this experience unless they make immediate changes I wouldn't think it would compete with the other restaurants in the area.
