My son decided to come home for the day to celebrate his birthday. We couldn't get a dinner reservation so went for lunch instead. Having looked on this site for recommendations I went to their website to check the veggie food offerings as this was our first visit. I was pleasantly surprised.
We had the five course Christmas lunch menu and were very pleased with it. I hope the standard is the same throughout the year as I would love to go again. The vegetarian main course was excellent although I would have preferred a different mix of veg with it but that is just my personal preferences. I don't much care for mangetout and would have preferred 'proper' peas.
The dessert choice was good. I had two glasses of wine , one white, one red and both were very good. My husband ordered the cheese for dessert and this was supposed to come with a glass of port. which was destined for me as he was driving. They told us they were out of port so offered a substitute. I had a brandy instead and was given a choice of which one.
I have read comments about the service here. when we arrived there were two other tables occupied and by the end we were alone. We went in at 1.50 for a 2pm booking and emerged just after 4.30. Yes, the service was a little slow but it did not bother us. In fact, we liked having a long leisurely lunch. had we had somewhere to go it might have been an issue but , in fairness, we gave the staff no indication of being in any hurry so don't know what they would have done if we had. I certainly found it nice that we were given plenty of time to make our selections as sometimes I find the waiting staff too eager to take the orders.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed the visit and would very much like to go back.
