Have watched this place being done up over the last 12 months, was keen to know the resulting article. Visited with friends for a meal as we live locally on a midweek night. As it wasn't busy our expectations in terms of both food and service was quite high. The menu looked inviting if a but pricey, and our order was taken quickly. 5 minutes later we were told that they'd run out of 'cow pie' one of their signature dishes! Surely we should have been told when ordering that something wasn't available. We all ended up having the same main, fish and chips with mushy peas which was ok but nothing special. Three of us ordered puds and one had cheese, two puds arrived and two didn't, after a while our waitress came and apologised, saying two puds had gone to another table and two more were being prepared, and would be another five minutes. We could have understood a mix up if the place was busy, but not so. The baby apple and almond tart had little taste and was poor quality, something you might expect in a chain eatery. We won't be returning.
