Dropped in as live 10 minutes around the corner. Was 8pm on a Sat eve and the bar area was half empty. Shown to a table and ordered drinks which came quite quickly.
After that the service was slow and the wait between starter and main was so long I was getting to the point of leaving. My fish and Chips were ok. Cold plate and the food was just about warm.
The bar was cold and bland music playing and no atmosphere whatsoever.
In the whole place were only about 6 couples and one table of 4. I heard the table of 4 saying their food wasn't that good so we weren't alone.
How the service could be SO slow when the place was empty I have no idea. We left about 9.30 to 9.45 and we were the last to leave.
Will I go back there again. No thanks, was bland, lifeless and not enjoyable. Wish we had just driven that extra 10 minutes and gone to The Diggers Rest in Woodbury Salterton - far far superior.
