We used to love this restaurant but we visited recently and were quite disappointed! The starter section used to have so many different weird and wonderful things from stuffed apricot halves, curried eggs, loads of salad things, pasta's pâtés .... You name it ....... they had it, there was something for everyone! Now this has changed to a basically fish section, rollmops, herrings, shell fish (all kinds) etc. If you don't like fish or are allergic to fish, there isn't much to choose from other than the basic salad items you can do at home!
The carvery food is lovely although if you like to taste two meats (or even go for all four!) helpings are quite big and we saw several people unable to finish their plates.
The puddings are not very interesting and not much choice! Coffees were pricey too!
On a positive note the staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful and mostly cheerful! The only one we found quite miserable was the chef carving the meat, he needs to raise a smile and at least try to look happy in his job! My husband tried to have a little joke with him (as did a few others) and he didn't even answer or smile. Cheer up mate!
It's a shame such a nice place has gone downhill, I know several people who have vowed not to go back, such a shame.
