Met up with family 5 plus a baby in total. Had origionally booked for 4 but no problem to add mother in law and baby nephew to the party when we arrived.As we cam in to the pleasant lounge area we were rather bowled over by the lady receptionist/maitre d who shouted 'are you with the williamson party' from quite a way away? when we said no she shuffled us to a seating area to await the other members of our party ...telling a passing waitress we would wait for drinks until our friends arrived! after she bustled away the kindly waitress came and took our drinks order! Family arrived and we gathered up nephews toys and went to dine.
We all had the 3 course lighter menu -full starter,half main and full pudding at 16.95. I had a beautiful velvet soup with croutons, sil. had zingy fruit salad, dd2 had mini cheeseburger (looked yummy!) and dd1 and mil had parfait of chicken liver ( poor flavour disappointing!) main courses were a hand sized haddock in light crispy batter with chips and peas ( lovely) and the others chose risotto which looked good too.
Puddings were the final jewel in this excellent lunch I had a rum and raisin baba with kirsch cherries and vanilla creme ( to die for!) dd1 had creamy unctious panna cotta with choc sorbet, mil and sil had trio of pudding each one delicious and ddd2 had a hot apple,rubarb and hazlenut crumble with vanilla ice....each one yummy! for the 16.95 it was a complete bargain!!! just go and try it out.
Coffee in the lounge was very squashed as only 4 tables but we did not want to linger as toddler was ready to sleep. met at the door again by older lady maitre d/receptionist who was a bit loud and insisted that we had not had our bill although we had already paid ... it was fine but a bit irritating. younger staff who were in the restaurant were lovely.
