I have eaten here before and haver liked ths place, it just does not gel with me. I find the dining room stuffy and airless and the clientele odd. It's the srt of place that people only seem to go to for a 'posh dinner' but would rather have spent less and gone to the pub. Unfair maybe but that is the vibe given. However, we came here because one of our party wanted to and I was on the back foot from the start.
My starter of crab cakes was small, over cooked on the outside and tateless on the inside. The accomanying chilli jam was very nice. My dining companions both stated that theirs were excellent.
And thats where the good bits end.
Dirty cutley, farcical service and some of the worst food i have tasted was then presented. The staff were very young ( one lad -seriously - looked 12) and very pleasant but WOEFULLY under trained.
I received the wrong meal, gave up ontrying to order a drink and stck to the table water and the food served to my partners was dry and cold.
My curry and rice ( truly nasty, sorry - and the naan bread like eating cardborad) came without spoons and the same with mint sauce, no spoon and saucer. Were we supposed to dip or fingers in and flick it onto the (dry )roast lamb?
The dark airless interior was compounded by all the windows being covered up in drapy blinds so it felt like being in a museum - horrible, i was desperate to get outside again.
I would never, in a thousand years return here but in fairness I do know that this not the level of service and food normally given. This may have been down to them being busy with a function or a lack of staff training of the youngsters but this is still not an excuse for the catalogue of (t)errors that we endured.
Coffee and desserts were refused. At least the lady in charge took control at the end listening to my long list of complaints and reduced our bill but I wanted to be fed enjoyable food with good service and that sadly was not a fulfilled expectation.
Go to Solva instead and eat at the Cambrian, no pretence just decent food.
