The welcome was warm but the food was not good. My steak was so tough it was inedible, I complained and a second was brought which was slightly better but not nice. I ended up taking it home for the dog! My partners meal was better but not the quality we would expect. Will not be going here again which is a pity as we have gone here often over the years. We were not charged for the steak but I went home hungry!

We visited this Inn which has recently changed hands and now reverted to its old name of The Bogroy Inn. It was a Sunday night in January and very cold but there was a warm welcome at the Inn. The service was excellent and the food good although, as it was the Sunday menu, there was not much choice but what we had was very tasty indeed.

We went on 24.7.12 as a party of 4 adults, 3 teenagers. We were staying nearby, and found this advertised in our accommodation. Our friends invited us all to dinner to mark their wedding anniversary. It was not completely straightforward to identify the restaurant because the name had changed back to an old name, following a recent change in ownership.

The staff were initially welcoming, but totally incompetent. One of the side orders never arrived, but more seriously: one of our party had a serious allergy to mushrooms; he ALWAYS asks about this in any restaurant. And so the waitress was asked if the vegetarian lasagne contained mushrooms, and she went to the kitchen to check: no, it did not, she reported, and so that was ordered. The food took some time to arrive, but when it did, cutting into the lasagne, the first thing visible was a mushroom! There were lots of them, and even eating one or two by accident could have resulted in serious illness. Protesting this, an alternative was ordered, again checking for mushrooms (and the replacement meal really didn't contain mushrooms!). Of course, everyone else was busy eating their dinner whilst this replacement was being prepared - it was fairly quick, but the idea of everyone eating together was a bit lost.

When the bill came, the waitress advised that 'as a special concession' that guest's meal had not been charged, in a way that implied that despite nearly causing one of us food poisoning, they were being very generous!

Needless to say, unless I found the ownership and management had changed, I would not go back, and I would advise others to stay away too.
