I have visited The Lade Inn before ( usually to enjoy good folk music) but our party was disappointed on this occasion.
Atmosphere, menu choice and wine all criticized within the fist 15 minutes does not bode well for a celebratory evening. Food was all cooked fine if a little basic, although the portions for the main course were OTT in some cases. Quantity rather than quality being the main complaint.
The highlight for me was to be the folk music, after some soleful songs from a young man that did have a decent voice but not a very cheerful disposition we inquired when the Trio would be on. This is when we were told that unfortunate circumstance meant the trio that should have been playing couldn't make it but they were still being advertised on posters in the Inn. The place was empty but for 2 couples when we left, we really did try to stay but depression was setting in. Normally it's standing room only.
Had we known we could have made other arrangements after our meal or even stayed in and entertained ourselves.
