The short of it is, I ordered field stuffed mushrooms - note the s on the end of mushrooms. When the field stuffed mushrooms arrived I was very disappointed to find the mushrooms consisted of one mushroom chopped in half to perhaps make mushrooms, however I don't feel that is correct as it is still only a mushroom. The field stuffed mushroom presented was very small of approximately 3 or 4 cm in diameter. The mushroom was extremely delicious, although were there at the least minimum and maximum 3 mushrooms, I would have considered it a fair and value for money and treat at around £7, that being the cost.
My partners starter was outstanding, he had the Cullen skink in a huge bread bun. I had to wait for at least another 15 minutes after I'd finished my starter for him to eat his astonishing starter. Surely the chef should make equal sized portions, as that's just weird.
Main meal was outstanding and way far too much food that one can eat. I don't like leaving food on my plate especially when it is delicious.
The service I can say was lovely and I really liked our waitress, however the girl that took our payment and tip didn't even bother look at me ir say thank you - not good. I didn't tell my partner that bit as he was already wound up about my mushroom woes.
I would go there again but check what is being offered before commiting to ordering from the menu.
