We were so disappointed with this visit: the restaurant and staff service did not live up to experience expectations to reviews!!!
Positive: Amy (waiting staff). Ian (chef) anti pasti starter. Chicken main course. All of the foregoing are of high quality and couldn't be faulted. I have been to the restaurant several times before and it had been brilliant - this us why I feel the need to complain this time.
Negative: the rest of the staff. A waitress told us they do not serve child portions at all: her colleague told the table next to us (after we had ordered) that they do half portions of everything on the menu. The very young manager sat socialising on another table despite being told customers (us) were complaining. We waited a very long time for all courses to be cleared.
The carbonara - the portion was so small we had to double check they hadn't accidentally given us a half portion.
The lasagne - pub equivalent of 1975 / much processed food involved. Slimy and nasty.
Service - slow and unresponsive
Toilets - mouldy
Bill - at more than £60 for 3 including 1 child and a drink this was very expensive - especially in comparison to other local places.
We retired to the red lion for desserts and coffee and weren't disappointed.
We won't be returning to this restaurant.
