wish i had read the previous review
took my new girlfriend as a treat.
When we first arrived i knew it was going to be a bad night when the larger was flat and when i complained the bloke behind the bar was both rude and obnoxious.
the food tasted like it had come out of a microwave oven and was cold
totaly ruined the moment. will not be going back..

very upset
I brought my elderly mother here for her 78th birthday, following many friend's reccomendations.

We had such a horrible experience, we left with my mother in tears and I was unable to calm her down after the way she was spoken to by a member of staff who brought her the wrong meal. Not once, but twice. By the time they came with the meal she ordered, I had already finished mine and what made it worse was we were charged for the two meals that were wrongly brought to my mother.

we told the girl who charged us that we never had those meals and she said that they are shown as being ordered and she checked with the kitchen and they were served to us.

I was trying to remain calm and as i was explaining yet again the situation, my mother tried to calm it by saying she would pay for the extra food. At this moment we both overheard the waiter explaining to a barstaff member about what was going on and he said very loudly the silly old f*ck doesn't knowwhat she ordered

the girl on the till even heard, she turned to look at them both and then back at me and my mother.

I was speechless, I quickly paid the full bill (including the two extra meals). and left without saying a word, my mother was so upset. I will not be returning. EVER.

Could have been better
We visited Easter Sunday and ordered 4 adult meals and 2 kids meals. The choice for kids is limited. When they brought the food one kids meal was missing, we had to wait 10 minutes before it was brought out, in the meantime everyone else had nearly finished. Very, very dissapointing. The food is quite tasty but the portions are small and expensive. I think it's only saving grace is the location. The setting is beautiful.

One of our favourite places for a lunch, however we have recently been disappointed. Ordered a casserole which comprised really tasty juice stock, two large dumplings, some slices of mushrooms, two onions and two tiny pieces of meat. Come on this was a joke. Portion control gone A W O L 10.00.

We arrived at 6:00pm on one of the hottest days of the year expecting to be able to get a meal outside on the patio. After ordering drinks we tried to order food. We were told that they had decided to not serve food outside; no reason given. The person apparently incharge of the patio area was busy with her friends at one of the patio tables finishing a meal and drinks. We left disgusted.

The Service
I went there on the Thursday Night 5/10/06. The food was poor, the sweets were exceptional, and the service was simply divine. I was served by a handsome young chap known by, i think, Aaron. He was the best. The overall ratting is 2 but the service was 5 out of 5.

We Visited on Thursday 08/06/2006. lovley pub with nice garden. I was very surprised when the staff refused to serve food in to the pub garden. I had to wait for the food to be brought to a table in the pub and then take it to the garden myself. I asked why and was told company policy. A bit old fashioned in these days dont you think. The food was good and the incidebt did not detract from the evening
