We visited this place last week thursday, my partner, his parents and I. We had a voucher for a starter and a main each and reading the menu on their website left us with high expectations but oh what a disappointment. As starters we had the chicken liver pate, which was ok, the prawn cocktail, which was with shrimps and 1 prawn, the breaded camenbert, which was good and their special the venison carpacchio: 3 small thin pieces of venison and a wee handfull of dry salad leaves, which had past their best and that for 6.50 £, are you kidding me??? As mains we had a steak pie and three of us chose the pheasant rapped in bacon. I felt so sorry for the birds, not only got they killed first by the hunter, but then again by the cook. Pheasant as well as all game should be served best very pink to keep it moist, juicy and soft and to keep it's unique wonderful game flavour, but these poor birds were so overcooked, that they had been hardly recognisable as game birds. They were so dry that we were about to ask for steak knives. To be honest when we hadn't been on a voucher and the waitress would have cared a bit more, I would have sent it straight back to the kitchen, but I was starving after my wee venison starter, or better call it an amuse bouche.
The service was disappointing as well, in every restaurant the service staff asks you if everything is ok, if your food is to your liking etc., not here, not after serving the starters, cleaning the table, serving the mains, cleaning up again and even not when my partner paid for the drinks. And when he told her that the food was at least 10 minutes overcooked, he only got an "oh" as an answer. We will definetely not be back, I wouldn't even offer the food to my dogs.
