Me and six of my family came here for a special occasion. When I rang up to make the reservation I was met with the voice of a lovely, friendly chap who couldn't have been more polite.
When we got to the restaurant we were asked if we would like to be seated or chill in the bar. We chose seated (as I had my elderly grandmother who doesn't like to wait) and we were taken to the table immediately.
We only ordered mains but my goodness I am so glad we did. They were huge!! I'd say the price is just above average for pub food - however you do get a lot - so perhaps the price is a perfect reflection. I had the duck and it must have been at least half a duck. The sauce was absolutely divine and the meat so tender it glided off the bone. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. I have been before and the food has certainly improved; the waitress told us they have a new chef.
As for the staff, a young pretty girl with very long blonde/brown hair was so very friendly. When she took our orders she was so helpful. She answered all of our questions and explained in detail what the specials were. She kept coming back to check our meal was okay and even brought us extra vegetables. She couldn't do enough for us.
The food was piping hot and really tasty and my fathers steak was seasoned to perfection. The only criticism I have is that the vegetables that accompanied the meals were a little boring, as if they had just been steamed. I feel that this is the only tiny criticism I have and I really cannot understand the review titled 'worst fish ever.'
Great place and highly recommended. No wonder the Queen visited!!
