For my husband's birthday, this was his choice given that he's been there a couple of times and I never have. 5 of us in total, and we had a huge wooden table to share. It's not a big menu but we all managed to order completely different starters and only 2 had the same main course. The piggy plate is a winner, which I believe changes depending on what's available (so says hubby, who's had it several times). I'm not a fan of black pudding, but did try it and it was very good, the fromage blanc provencal was also a hit. It was huge so everyone got a taste at the table. Strange idea, sort of a mix between a cold fondue and soup, however it did work. One main was sent back for a bit more cooking as it came out rarer than expected for a medium steak, but that was the only issue. We were shown a dessert menu, but then nobody came back to ask if we wanted anything from it, probably a good thing considering the size of the dishes. Would have been nice to be asked though.
The only downside is the toilets. Or lack thereof. Only one (for both sexes) to share and I really wouldn't have wanted to be the couple sitting right outside it ! All in all, very respectable prices, and the house red and white were better than expected. If I was in the area, I'd definitely go back.
