As previously highlighted in a former review the lunch menu here is extremely good value £19.50 for 3 courses. Additionally there is an option to take 2 courses and enjoy a half bottle of wine for the same price. There are 3 options to choose from for each of the courses. The chiiled asparagus soup with a parmesan biscuit was very good on a warm day. My beef was very well cooked and presented and my fellow diner indicated that the pollock was also very good and it looked well presented and very meaty. We both enjoyed the tart and creme anglais for desert.
We were fortunate in being seated in the conservatory and it is a very beautiful location on a bright sunny day. Sadly the service was a bit suspect. The gaps between the courses were excessively long. Indeed, we were presented with a complimentary glass of wine to make up for the situation. It was a working lunch with lots to discuss so we coped with the gaps very well.
The sampling menus, both meat eating and vegetarian, look very good with or without the accompanying wines. It is certainly worth returning as friends inform me that our experience of the service was very much a lapse and does not reflect the usual dining experience.
