    First time we have been where food was not as nice as before - fish too hard for my friend to even cut into it, we did mention this at the time , we were advised that it had been cooked correctly and nothing was wrong with it. My chicken dish was okay, nothing special.

    Overall excellent, especially the food and friendly staff. I did ask for a single rose for my partner but it was not provided or an apology that the request could not be met.

    The afternoon tea could have done with more sandwiches. Had to ask for water. Waitress never smiled or made eye contact. They all looked miserable.

    Booked for Sunday evening for four of us. A bit disappointed that the Sunday menu had changed to that which was on the web site. It was a limited menu and I understand it will be the same in the future. If you wanted to dine on a Sunday evening regularly then it would become very boring as it was basically a Sunday lunch. However, the meal was really good and the staff could not have been more helpful.
