A party of four for lunch on Valentines Day who all agreed that this restaurant falls short of expectations but it really shouldn't take much to make it so much better. To start off with had a couple of dirty side plates and a dirty glass which we asked to be replaced. Not a great start and something which simply should not happen. Service OK but nothing to write home about and certainly nothing to make you feel welcome. Now to the food. Three starters of tempura soft crab. Tasteless with greasy batter with no resemblance to tempura whatsoever. Main course.....two dishes of sole and two haddock and chips. Afraid to say that the sole was overcooked,the batter on the cod too greasy and the mushy peas tasteless. All this may sound rather harsh but bearing in mind that all dishes we ordered were the most simple on the menu it really should not be beyond the capability of any reasonably competent kitchen to deliver these dishes to a really good standard. And to cap it all this place isn't exactly cheap for what are very basic dishes.
It's such a shame as the venue promises so much. I urge the management to address these issues otherwise the likelihood of repeat visits will be very limited. Come on shape up...please.
