Despite not having visited the restaurant for two years, we were immediately recognised by the senior waitress, who made us feel very welcome. There were some communication problems with the Polish waitress whose command of English isn't great, and she needs some training in how to put dishes gently on the table, but she smiled throughout! The starters of soup and smoked trout were very good, although the bed of rocket under the smoked trout could have been omitted or replaced by some simple green leaves. The wholemeal bread was very good, but we were disappointed that there was only one slice each - when we asked for more, we were told that only sliced white bread was available. A restaurant of this type should have plenty of bread available at all times.
The main courses of Cumberland sausage and gammon were really good and more than adequate - my wife couldn't finish her sausage dish.
The wine list is a bit limited and very expensive, but the Italian red that we had was unusual and truly delicious. It would be good if there were house wines available at a more reasonable price - everything is over £20 a bottle.
