I am not sure if it was because it was a bank holiday and the place was short of staff or we we just unlucky, but we were not impressed with the quality of the meal we ordered. They only seemed to have light bites and a set lunch menu, which it is fine although we were under the impression that they will also have the other menu as displayed at the door. It's fair to say that the lunch set menu was quite cheap, two courses for £11.95, but I am of the opinion that if you are going to serve an affordable menu, make sure you get it right, or otherwise do not bother at all. We ordered a wild garlic soup and mussels as starters. The soup was quite flavourless alhtough and wild garlic is a very tasty ingredient that certainly should shine through. The mussels were quite mediocre, with a very watery sauce lacking taste and appearance. We were waiting for our main courses for about 25 minutes and when they arrived, we were not very pleased. We had ordered the steak and chips, which we knew it was from not a prime cut, but the meat was very tough and bland. The waiter must have noticed our discontent, as he asked us if everything was alright. We pointed out the poor quality of the beef and he asked us if we wanted another one or anything else from the menu, suggesting that their all-day-breakfast was a popular choice. We eventually decided to ask for the bill and pay, as we were not inclined to have anything else. They were polite and removed the prices of the steak from the bill but I am afraid that all in all was not a nice meal or experience.
