Just had a very nice Sunday lunch including deserts.. I had lamb and my wife beef.
We both agreed that the mains were delicious with tasty interesting veg (including shallots and a form of mash, roasted carrot, cabbage with tasty roast potato and Yorkshire pudding. Our gravy was different and very tasty. Certainly not something you'd knock up at home ion a few minutes and really made the dish. Yorkshire pudding could have been crispier but that's definitely a matter of choice. Definitely not small portions but they are not (and you wouldn't expect) them to be throwing volume at you. I had a chocolate and cherry dessert and my wife the lemon and blackberry (?) mouse thingy. Both very good. Lemon dessert was a good balance of tartness and sweetness, light and refreshing. Chocolate was substantial and a good size to.
Service was friendly and prompt, not overbearing.
I had no significant expectations but my wife had read some of the reviews on here. i have subsequently read some before writing this.
I am lucky enough to have eaten at restaurants all over the world over a 40 year period. I am no expert, not a foodie and I am not impressed by fluff, fashions and bull but try to take things as they come and evaluate them as whole. I have had fantastic food in top restaurants and shacks on beaches etc and plenty of fairy poor stuff too.
Based on this one experience I would definitely recommend Sunday lunch here. I didn't think it was expensive but obviously it isn't a cheap option. I am also not expecting a Sunday lunch to be fine dining.
Some stuff to improve...
Staff were friendly but they need to allocate tables. We had three staff asking after us, sometimes at the same time ...Could do more to tell you about the provenance of the meat (especially if you are going to name it on the menu). No salt and pepper on the table and not offered (yes I know!) My meal was perfectly seasoned as was my wife's even though she asked me where the salt and pepper was before tasting it. Out table needed someone to scrub the edge as the moulding was a bit sticky. Place was clean but my wife (who is not a stickler like my gran was) noticed this. the chocolate pudding could have been lighter with less honeycomb (which I wasn't sure was home made (or bought from the excellent grocers on the Fish Quay). Cider was excellent but I wasn't told what it was. If it was Strongbow fine but if it was anything else less commercial ...tell me, up sell and get me to try another etc...instead of giving me a business card with the bill .. get me to think about booking for dinner or otherwise coming again...
