Lovely food, excellent service even thought the lass was ran off her feet. Would definitely reccomend
There was a smell of sewage when we first went in. I had the trio of tapas, one of the dishes was under cooked and cold, it should of been served with bread, salad and dips, there were none. The chips were greasy and very large so some were raw in the middle. The bar staff were lovely and we had a free dessert, but they were so busy they didn't get to us until the meal was finished so we couldn't point out what was wrong until it was too late. What was edible was lovely though. Can't fault the staff.
They don’t take bookings anymore. They have changed the place, it’s darker, too many tables, the carvery format they’ve changed to doesn’t work, the pork was almost slimy I have no idea what they’d done to it. Shan’t be going again.
