It was a special anniversary lunch, and we were both very disappointed with the meal. Nothing really wrong with the way it was cooked except my rack of lamb was not that tender. Moreover it was the fact that for £20 for the main meal all I got was the lamb and one roast potato. I mean, come on, that is bordering on the mean. I did get some green beans but all I felt I got was some meat, when some more potatoes would have been nice. We did not have a pudding because we just felt let down by the price and the fact that it was just lamb and no real sauce or anything else. I am aware that it is good to just taste the meat or fish, but I can do that at home. When I go out I do like the think that the chef has taken a bit more trouble. Of course we said nothing because it was our anniversary, and so it just spoils it even more if we complained. It is a lovely place to be and the farmers market is great, but no way would I return. I think it is pretentious, and would much rather travel to find places that are value for money, such as Galton Blackstons Morston Hall. His food is amazing and I have enjoyed many meals there with absolutely no complaint at all. I overheard the owner telling someone that some Friday nights are quiet. Not surprised at all if that is what they offer. I would not return there for a meal.
