This review hasn't been rated yet.
I really struggled to review this – partly as the experience was so mixed.
Went on Friday night with my girlfriend and booking online was simple although we didn't get the window table I'd asked for, despite some being free.
When we arrived we got the wrong menus to start with (the dessert ones) and when replaced we still only got one main menu and yet another dessert menu.
Drinks were a little slow to arrive and bread had to be asked for rather than offered. Main courses arrived and my girlfriend sent hers, the roast beef, back as it wasn't hot (my roast pork was), but a replacement turned up in very short order together with new side dishes that were so hot the plates took the varnish off the table. Food was good but not exceptional by any means. Dessert choices were simple (we'd had ample oportunity to browse) and quite tasty – poached pear with winter fruits and chocolate mousse and a melt in the middle chocolate sponge. Staff were polite and apologetic about the mix up.
Value for money not bad at around £75 for 2 courses and drinks before a tip.
Its one where you'd have to rate it as an almost – some really simple changes could make this very good, but its not quite there now.
