Went for a pub supper but the small tired and gloomy bar wasn't large enough to seat more than the 4 or 5 couples who were already seated so were shown to a small narrow anti room next door which was utterly characterless with a row of tables and chairs and nothing else. The only alternative was the "whisky lounge" - a larger room with tables and chairs a couple of sofas and interestingly, a box of kleenex tissues on a coffee table.
We opted to eat here but were the only customers so atmosphere nil. The menu is very basic and unimaginative which is fine if there is no one around who is able to cook properly which, if this is the case it is sensible not to try to be adventurous. The list of main courses consists of fish and chips, scampi and chips, lasgne (and chips) etc.etc.
Its disappointing to find a place which could have so much potential being run without what seems to be any form of direction. There was no sign of or greeting by a friendly owner or manager which is so important in these small country hotels.
