Visited as a group of four for evening meal only to find that various dishes were not available including the steak ,unheard of ! We did all eventually choose various dishes which were all disappointing in various ways . My own blue cheese quiche starter had very little of the "blue" ingredient and was pretty tasteless , my wife's fish cake starter was filled with what can only described as mushy fish paste and our friends stater of fish terrine was covered in far too much mayonnaise mixed haphazardly with the new potato ,no sign of dill.
The main course of shin beef was well cooked but with too much salt and the bubble and squeak accompaniment consisted of mainly mashed potato and very little else . The wild mushroom topping was OK, if a little on the sparse side .The pork and chicken pie whilst having a reasonable filling had a stodgy thick crust most of which was left uneaten .The meat and potato pie was deemed OK but at £10.00 ?! (plus veg) was no better than any pie shop would produce .
Two sweets were bought , the lemon meringue pie which was not crispy enough and soggy at the bottom and the glazed tart with raspberries according to our companion tasted slightly of salt .
In common with other reviewers I do object to paying separately for vegetables which I think should be included in a meal cost which is high in the first place in comparison with other establishments. As is often the case we just paid up and put it down to experience but one which will not be repeated .
It did not help at the end of the meal when one of the kitchen staff came by our table looking like he had wiped his hands down his kitchen trousers all day. This was was unfortunately after we had eaten ,if it had been before we would have gone elsewhere .
