Was slightly disappointed on our visit. Took my two youngest in for a meal after school on Thursday, I usually love this place in the winter (I avoid like the plague in the summer!), the service usually improves tenfold and the food is always better, but not it seems this year. I had to ask to be served at the bar even though there were four staff 'having a gossip' in the waitress cubby & the personal chat continued whilst I was being served, I always feel the customer should be given sole attention when being served & having a bar steward more or less ignoring me always irritates.
The menu was a standard issue JW Lees type, with items on that you can run your finger down & practically give them the order codes for (I have been in the catering business for over 20 years). I asked for the specials only to be told they 'weren't doing any tonight'. Shame as I really didn't fancy anything off their menu. I eventually ordered the Tomato & Vegetable Broth for myself, their choice of children's meals as usual was a very decent selection & my youngest had the bacon chop with egg & chips & my middle daughter had the scampi, I also ordered chips & cheese to go with my broth.
The scampi, soup & chips arrived in reasonable time but I had to go and ask to see where the bacon chop was to be answered with a curt 'it's coming' and it did, 5 minutes after the rest of the food.
My soup was delicious although not a broth as stated more of a base tomato soup with raw vegetables thrown in but I liked it so no worries, my daughters meals were also fine & as stated and enjoyed although all the 'chunky' chips were so fat that they were not cooked in the middle & an the cheese on mine was a cold congealed lump so they were left.
Once the food had been deposited we didn't see another member of staff at all and we are slow eaters. No on came to ask if it was okay and we actually left the building without even being noticed (we had paid!).
All in all the food was okay, nothing spectacular. The service - dismissive I'd say and although we will probably go back at some point I would say it's somewhere to go if you cant be bothered to cook, not for an 'occasion'.
