Team outing for dinner and The Wallace came up as a new (3 weeks old) option to test for dinner. Restaurant upstairs. Smartly done out internally. No curtains and apparently a bit bright on a sunny day, but not an issue in the evening.
Menu was interesting. Pre-theatre 3 cse for £17.95 and 2 cse for £13.95 good value for the ingredients that came out. Excellent spicy and rich pumpkin soup with lovely homemade bread and local butter a treat. Pals' fish cakes also highly rated. Main of a slow cooked beef in luscious gravy was melt in the mouth and rich, but not overly so. Nice sides with it, and really solid portion sizes. Cheesecake really creamy but in sensibly sized portion with fruit coulis and ice cream.
Service was very friendly and helpful, but it is clear that staff are still finding their feet in this new venture and struggling to keep up with even a quiet restaurant. That means expect to wait a bit for food, but drinks are OK price-wise for the quality of the food, and it is a pleasant enough place to while away a few hours
All in all this is a place that deserves to succeed, and I hope that they will work on the service speed, and that people will give them a chance, since there is a great restaurant in there trying to get out.
