The title sums it up. The place has a handsome dining room and an extensive a la carte menu, but we ate meat pies in the bar. For almost thirty pounds, two of us had a pint and a half, two pies and some vegetables. They were making an effort: The dishes were nice to look at. But the vegetables were overlooked and both pies were awash in beef gravy -- not so bad for steak and ale pie, but just bizarre with chicken and Stilton. The crust on the pies was fine, but the fillings were nondescript and textureless. The barman was pleasant and solicitous, and I wish I could say nicer things about the food, but for the price it was just not good.

Have eaten here on 3/4 occasions over a few years in the bar and restaurant. The food is variable but I think that is to do with what you choose rather than the cooking. The Trawlerman's Catch is more Captain Birdseye - just breaded and deep fried seafood so a bit boring but they had a special fish menu on last time we went and had beautiful lemon sole with vermouth sauce, new potatoes and veg. Personally I would find 3 courses way too much - portions are big. One of our party had sea bass served with mash and still got side serving of veg including new potatoes - what a waste of food and there was no way you would want mash and new potatoes on the side. The waitress was lovely but the person who welcomed us didn't smile at all. So some good some not so good. If it was all the high standard then I would give it very good but not with the inconsistency of food and service,

Arrived for a drink with husband and the children and decided to stay for food - and glad we did! Sat out in the beer garden in the sun and had 2 different hot baguettes, scampi and Burger - all excellent, all served with very yummy handcut chunky chips, coleslaw and salad. Between the four of us we also tried walnut brownie, white chocolate tiramisu and icecream - homemade puds and Dennetts icecream - all very good. Good range of food on the menu - either the bar menu or A La Carte - will definitely be going back to sample some more - apparently they do a 2 for 1 on a Wednesday night - might have to try that out! Staff are friendly and helpful, and the prices are reasonable.
