Ate here with a group of 15 or so. The layout of the restaurant was poor with little room to walk around the tables. We were crammed into a space that was in no way suitable for the number in our party. Furthermore it was beside the toilet and a storage cupboard and hardly conducive to an enjoyable meal.
It was December and this restaurant was clearly interested in packing in as many punters as possible for maximum profit, as evidenced by the temporary tables and chairs in place.
The service was perfunctory, the staff, while not unpleasant, had really no interest in engaging with their customers. Because of the way we were crammed into the corner with no room to walk around, the staff could not get around the tables to serve or clear away, so we all had to pass our plates along the table. It was quite farcical to be honest and it all seemed rather tacky.
The food didn't impress. I had a turkey terrine starter that was bland and texture less. Its accompanying salad and toasted bread did little to enhance it. The pork loin main course wasn't much to write home about and not much of it. The sides of mashed carrot and parsnip were bland and cold. The dessert was saddening: bulk bought meringue with a soggy strawberry on top.
This was one of the poorest meals and dining experiences I've had recently. Bland food in a bland restaurant lacking any real atmosphere. This joint is imply interested in getting bums on seats and taking your money for second rate food. How this restaurant ever got rated so highly on TripAdvisor with such a poor product is mind-boggling, unless of course the large number of 5 star reviews from reviewers with little history had something to do with it. Or perhaps those reviewers just don't know the meaning of good food or good service.
In summary, if you want good food, with good service, in pleasant surroundings, don't even think about trying this place.
