We visited the Somerset Arms last Friday evening and sat in the "front bar" with a group of workmen and our dogs. The atmosphere was excellent, the service superb, nice beer and fantastic food, so delicious, my mouth is watering thinking of it now. After a wonderful evening we left already talking about our pending return the following evening.
< ONE STAR........
We visited the Somerset Arms last Saturday evening having had a fabulous time the previous evening. We left the dogs at home and excitedly headed for the restaurant. Unfortunately we hadn't booked a table, our error, so gladly sat in the rear lounge. It was really cold so had to sit in our coats, not deterred we waited to be served. Then we waited a bit longer. And longer. Eventually, we gave our order and waited and waited........... a large group for the restaurant arrived so we waited some more. Finally three of our meals arrived. Two were average. The third was very unpleasant. Soggy pasta, one half mushroom and some chunks of chicken in an instant gravy accompanied by raw garlic bread, aka Chicken & Mushroom Pasta. It was totally inedible so was left, though admittedly no complaint made at the time. Finally the third meal arrived, the rare steak was well done. We thought it strange for the medium steak to arrive some 15 - 20 minutes earlier.
Such a shame on the Saturday after such a fabulous Friday.
Oh yes, I almost forgot about the drinks on Saturday, no I didn't... that's right, they were forgotten.
