Went there to celebrate our First year anniversary since getting married. The Pub and the décor are very nice and is in a very pleasant setting.
However we sat down at around 19:00 on Saturday night and was surprised how quiet it was, the service was very slow and after ordering our drinks they finally arrived after about 20 minutes having ordered our meals. When the starters arrived they were disappointing my wife’s leek and potato soup was very bland and she had to put half a ton of salt in to make it taste of anything. I had the Goats cheese which was fine.
Mains took around another 40 minutes to arrive, the wife had the Pork which again wasn’t very inspiring. I had the Chicken Caesar salad which again was distinctly average and had no wow factor.
We decided to pass on Deserts paid and left. The waiter who looked after us was young but tried really hard and we tipped accordingly. The bill came to £60 which seemed OTT bearing in mind what we had and the quality.
My feedback although by no means the Goshawk being a bad pub is that they aspire to be a top pub with excellent food, I would disagree with this as the food seems to 3* and the prices do not reflect this. I would use the Analogy of one of the Wags you see in Marbella looking very nice but when you scratch beneath the surface there is no substance and very underwhelming.
More imagination needed foodwise to make it a go to destination.
