This was my favourite place for lunch in Chester for a long while but I've been twice in the last few months and will not be returning again. The menu has changed several times, and not for the better. Maybe it's just the vegetarian options that are especially poor, but the last two meals I've had have been very disappointing. I had a pasta dish which was so bland that it tasted like baby food and, most recently, the veggie beanburger which was just inedible. It was overwhelmingly dry, crumbly and about 4 times bigger than it should have been. Added to this, the chips were barely lukewarm with all meals in our party.
The food certainly LOOKS great, with really good presentation, but sadly the taste doesn't match the appearance. The meat-eaters I've been with the last two times said their meals were adequate but nothing special. I would have given it one star for my meals alone but have taken the other meals into consideration and given it two stars.
it's a real shame as I loved this cosy, traditional pub with its tasty, homecooked meals.
