I'm sorry to say that I wasn't impressed when I visited. We visited as a party of 5 for a birthday so we needed it to be special
The menu selection wasn't brilliant, most of the starters are amoked. But I did enjoy the goats cheese starter which was brilliantly presented. The steaks on the main meals were dry and the duck was slightly over cooked
What was more upsetting was the wait between courses and ordering drinks and the arrival of the drinks. Our first drink order took 5-10 mins to arrive, the second order was wrong and when I went to the bar to ask for the missing wine I was given a warm bottle of white wine. The third order was cancelled after we waited 10+ mins before I cancelled it. The staff seemed new and didn't really know what to do with themselves. When I spoke to an older gentleman about the drinks situation he just said that the only member of staff was rushed off his feet and that he would be with me when he has finished. This gentleman didn't offer to pour the drinks and simply allowed me to cancel the drinks order.
I also didn't appreciate that on arrival I had to push my way through two men smoking on the door step in order to get in. Yes this is also a pub but it didn't create a good first impression.
I understand that the place in under new hands but these problems need to be sorted as we would have walked out if we could have
