It was our first time at The Cottage, and we had a couple of questions. The staff was pleasant, however, all questions had to be answered by the chef. First, the menu offers a gluten free option which was one reason we went there. When the bread was served we asked if there was GF bread. Staff went and asked. No. OK. We notice one dinner which average $25 has a wheat/spelt. We asked how the GF option could be implemented. We were told there were no substitutions so they would just leave the spelt off...one third of the dinner would be missing. OK.
We ordered an appetizer then were told the whole meal had to be ordered at once, as that is how the chef like it. So we could not order the appetizer until we each knew what we wanted to have for dinner. The salmon was excellent,though the haddock was not memorable. The house wine, which was reasonable, was very good. The portions are gourmet sized which is good for most of us.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely though we were one of 5 tables occupied the whole time we were there. I noticed as a previous reviewer mentioned that couples were seated at tables lined up against the window where tables for 2 are placed closely to each other. Since there were such few people there I wonder why these couples weren't given more room and privacy.
