We have visited the Lime Kiln many times over the last 5 years and always enjoyed it but I think they have become too complacent at their success as our visit yesterday was quite disappointing. We ordered roast beef which according to the board comes with Yorkshire puddings. When it turned up without, we asked for some, to be told they had run out. Exactly how long does it take to make another batch if you are running low?! We hadnt been told this when we ordered, a small thing maybe but we had all been looking forward to the traditional sunday roast. The beef was bloody and very pink, my 2 children couldnt face it and I struggled to eat it. If they are going to serve it almost raw then they should ask how you would like it to be done when you order. We almost sent it back to be cooked more thoroughly but the miserable waitress who served us had already been quite abrupt about the lack of Yorkshire puddings so I couldnt be bothered to face her displeasure again. We had to wait ages for our plates to be cleared and ages again to order puddings. One waitress to be fair, was lovely and smiley, but there was one that clearly didnt want to be there and didnt seem to want us there either! Get a different job I think. There is also a miserable bloke on the bar - the owner?? He didnt say thanks when we paid and didnt say goodbye. OK,If they dont want the custom then maybe i dont want to go again.
