we shared the mussels starter which was lovely - delicious moules, sauce and crusty bread. My partner enjoyed the hamburger, though found the smoky flavour of the cheese topping a little overpowering, and didn't think it was overall particularly outstanding. Very nice chips, dip and onion rings though - fortunately for me as I'd decided to have a double portion starter for my main - a ballantine of salmon with avocado mousse. I regretted my decision - the salmon was served cold and tasted like compressed fish flavoured with salt. The mousse could have saved it but was bland and tasteless. There was a tiny garnish of dressed leaves, fish eggs and melba toast which did not help distract from the dullness of the salmon or its heavy texture. Sharing my partner's delicious chips and dip saved the day for me! I left half of one of the ballantines and my plate was removed without enquiry of whether we'd enjoyed our food or found any problems with it. I decided not to complain but was very disappointed. My partner was served a cloudy beer which he sent back - the staff were very apologetic. We left without trying the puddings even though they sounded very tempting - didn't want to risk further disappointment.
