I was wary before I went for my meal at lunchtime on Saturday. I had visited my brother in the morning and told him where we were going for lunch, GOOD LUCK with that he said...and he eats out regularly and much more than me.
I started getting worried when there were only two cars in the car park, and one of those was the friend I was lunching with...
When I went in there were only 2 people in...always a bad sign especially at the weekend.
We had bought a voucher for this lunch through TOP TOWN DEALS and therefore were only paying half the usual price of £14.99 for 2 courses....
The 1st disappointment was that we could not choose from the main menu and when I asked the waitress about this found that it was in the small print...so I guess it was my fault but there was nothing on the 3 choice menu that I wanted.
However we were there so.....
The starter was ok...but could have done with a small piece of french stick or brioche..
The main was a disaster....the fish was overcooked and dry..the small cubes of potatoes were obviously last nights cold potatoes heated up...not too bad in itself except that they were not cooked properly through...how does boiled radish cut into quarters sound? mmmmm
tiny white onions and some kind of tasteless sauce completed.....oops sorry, forgot the gritty spinach.
The whole meal was tasteless and I had looked forward to it so much.
I confess that I ate it all as I was really hungry after having no breakfast and could not be bothered with a formal complaint. I did tell the waitress and she asked if I wanted to send a message to the kitchen . They were obviously waiting to close the dining room as we were the only ones in it so I said no....
Since then I have had conversations with other people with the same opinion...could have been that we were on a special offer so we got a special offer meal (you had to tell them)
If I had paid the full amount it would definitely gone back to the kitchen.
Its a real shame as this place used to be jumping when it was pie and peas and hotpots!!!
