My wife & I purchased the DealMonster voucher for £20 allowing us to purchase up to £40 of food. I feel we just about got a meal worthy of £20 & there are a good few eating places nearby that could have served us with more than we consumed for that £20. We struggled initially to get into the restaurant as the entrance door had been locked due to the high winds & a notice on the entrance door advising such would have helped & I had to let someone in even they were knocking loudly on the door. We both decided to choose from the daytime menu as the evening menu wouldn't have allowed us to have more than 2 courses & with some extra to pay. We ordered the same 3 course meal of leek & potato soup, cheese & onion pie, chips & veg & apple crumble & ice cream. The service wasn't quick but we certainly didn't have to wait as long as some of the other reviews though we were the only ones in at the time. The soup was nicely presented & with a nice hot roll with butter & initially whilst we were eating the soup with the roll all was fine. When we both came to have the soup on it's own we were both left choking as the pepper in the soup was extreme & we both left a good half of it. We felt with leaving such an amount the waiter would have asked if everything was alright (which he didn't with any of the courses) with the soup but nothing & we left it at that. If we had been paying the full price of £4.50 pp we definitely would have said something. Whilst waiting for the courses the waiter was pleasant & struck up some conversation. The main course certainly couldn't be described as "belly busting" for the quoted price of £8.95 pp & the vegetable portion given with it was slight. We both found the cheese & onion pie very tasty though. The portion size was the same for the sweet & again at the quoted price of £5.95 pp didn't come up to value. All in all the meal offered comfortable portions but for a daytime menu in a rear conservatory charging £39 for 2 three course meals is way to expensive for us & we won't return.
