This was our choice for dinner on our first night in the area (the B&B we chose does not offer full board). It was a very quiet monday night in early march, so not a lot of customers and we were offered our choice of a table in the restaurant or the bar. We chose the bar as the restaurant is a large room in a newer construction in the back with a lot less atmosphere than the original bar area. We also got to join in the pub quiz which just happened to be that night.
My starter included a substance referred to as kipper custard, which I couldn't resist but it wasn't worth the anticipation - seemed like it had been frozen and the components had separated out. The rest of the food was good, though, and for the price (35 quid) would be hard to beat.
