Had friends visiting the area and thought this would be ideal place to have our Sunday roast. What a disappointment and embarrassment.
Table booked for 5.30, bar service helpful and pleasant, drinks brought to us while waiting for our meal. Dining area lovely and comfortable.
Roast beef and yorkshire pudding arrived on the plates, very impressed. However then a dish of new potatoes covered in ? tomato puree and burnt roast potatoes. Seasonal veg consisted of beetroot, cauliflower cheese and mashed carrots squashed onto one serving dish. Had to ask for gravy as only small amount on the plate.
We were asked by our waitress if all was well however I didnt want to make a fuss or make our friends feel uncomfortable. So didnt say anything at this time. However I did tell her while the plates were being cleared away that we were very disappointed with the meal. Poor girl I didnt want to upset her as it was down to the chefs low standards.
We were happy to leave without ordering dessert or more drinks.
Wont be returning.
