Having been here twice before & not having a particularly good experience, my daughter thought I was nuts when I decided to lunch here today. My reason for the re-visit to be honest was the reviews on this site & I'm glad I did go back.
It was fairly quiet but we were there early and chose a comfortable window seat overlooking the garden. I still think the new decor looks a little out dated but that is my personal opinion & does fit Anglesey's general feel.
We were greeted by a very congenial waiter who took both our drinks & food orders at the table, was chatty & willing to answer any questions regarding the menu which was vastly improved since our last visit (no surly glass slamming waitress this time!), one slight downside was that there were many items from the menu not available, the ham salad, the salmon, the ravioli, the cheese cake (still setting) to name a few. This didn't particulally bother my daughter or myself as they had what we wanted! Lovely tasty tomato soup for us both to start & then a starter of king prawn with Gorgonzola for myself & the scallops for my daughter. Prawns were over powered by the blue cheese, one of those dishes which, in practice, doesn't quite work but as I love blue cheese (& prawns) I enjoyed it all the same. My daughters scallops were cooked to perfection, and with the right amount of dressing & leave to compliment. For dessert my daughter had the last chocolate mousse going, & I wish there had been more as after trying hers I really wanted one of my own! Absolutely delicious with rich dark bitter chocolate, not the sickly sweet mousses you can find. A rare treat of a liqueur coffee for me, well it was my day off, finished the lunch perfectly!
Also having mentioned the waiter once I must point out how friendly, professional & special he made us feel, just doing his job I know but it does make all the difference.
I am so glad we decided to give this place a 'last chance', rare for me to return to a place after two bad visits & I am pleased I did. I foresee many return visits in the future.
