Good food , but be careful where you sit .
One area is very noisy , particularly if at the same time with young family diners !

    Very Good Service

  • (((** 18 March 2017 by Lunch with friends from Bedford

    It was very busy so made service slow. One of the meals was not very hot.
    The staff were friendly
    but had to go to bar to ask to pay. As seemed preoccupied with bar jobs and other staff seemed to have disappeared.

    Very enjoyable, unfortunately they had run out of Somerset Brie , but we all enjoyed our meals.

    Wasn't the best experience on this occasion. Waiting almost 30 minutes to be seated, and we had to remind the staff as they forgot.
    When we were seated and got our menus again almost 30 minutes waiting before I had to find someone to take our order.
    We ordered the roast lamb. It certainly wasn't worth £17.95
    We have had the lamb here before as we were regulars, The lamb pieces (3per plate) were so small (about the size of a £2 coin, the small sausage with bacon was bigger than all the lamb put together.
    The Yorkshire was cold on the bottom & soggy. The vegetable plate didn't have a serving spoon, so trying to put cabbage from the bowl to the dinner plate meant that most of the veg went on the table.
    We asked for some mint jelly and the waitress brought us the jar which had less than a teaspoon of mint in it (thought she would have checked the jar first)

    Disappointed! Roast potatoes were soggie & my wife's meat had a lot of fat. Puddings were fine. Long wait to pay bill although asked 3 different waiters.

    Having booked for 20.30 we finally got served at 21.30 .
    We were kept waiting for 15 minutes before we got asked what we would like to drink.
    When we asked for the bill the waiter did not know how to add the gratuity to the bill.
