I booked over the internet for Sunday roast and got a generic reply saying that they would contact us.
Although I hadn't had any further contact we turned up at the time we had requested.
We were able to choose our table. The place lacked atmosphere with only 2 other tables inside and 1 outside having customers. We were the youngest there (late 50s/early 60s) but the music was not age appropriate although inoffensive.
The décor and spaciousness is lovely.
The waitress was very pleasant but, because she was on her own and busy, had to be reminded of our requests (e.g. jug of water and clean cruet).
We noticed that the drinks menu and the cruet set on our table were splattered with dried on food- rather off putting and the unused highchair near to our table was dirty- would not put any of my grandchildren in it.
The food was ok.
My husband had the duck pate (not homemade and the white toast was just thin sliced shop bought bread rather than rustic The presentation of the veg on a small dinner plate is different, the veg portions were adequate for us but rather small for someone with a healthy appetite. The roast potatoes were good. The meat, although a cheap cut was tender and flavoursome, in large quantity on the plate (should have asked for a small portion) and my husband had the added 'bonus' of a piece of the string- he didn't want that extra.
We didn't try the desserts.
Hopefully the asian cuisine is more successful than the roast we had today. Shame as we live locally and with the decor would have loved to have made this a regular visit.
Please note that this may not be the place to eat if you have a food allergy- although the waitress checked with the kitchen as to what my lactose intolerant could eat he was still given 2 pats of butter- an oversight but easily noticed.
I hope that these are just teething problems.
