Food was beautiful I had the poached salmon and mash and it was a hearty piece of salmon. My other half had the steak pie which was also lovely although he would have liked more potatoes.

Menu wasn't what was advertised on line which I always find a bit challenging as have dietary needs and means last minute changes or complexities. Fairly good selection in general without too many options. 2 of our group ordered the baked cheese and bread sharing starter...large round of cheese but 4 tiny bits of bread - not the right balance also large baked cloves of garlic (not particularly nice to eat - was advertised as a garlic oil dip) and definitely not good value. Mistake with our order meant my son got a burger that was not what he ordered but to be fair they sorted it out pretty quickly. We had 2 courses each, with a soft drink and 1 person had an alcoholic drink which averaged about £23 each. Not bad value, appreciate everywhere is having to increase prices at moment so worth remembering that previously 'value' was measured in a difference economic climate. Nice atmosphere and was busy so clearly popular and would recommend.

We arrived at 5:50 for our reservation at 6pm. Myself and my mum ordered the Camembert sharer to start and 3 roasts dinners for myself, my mum and my gran. After sitting for around half an hour, our roast dinners were delivered to our table. We explained that we hadn’t even been given our starter yet, to which the waitress asked us if we wanted her to leave the roast dinners with us or take them away. My gran (who had ordered a half portion of roast dinner) took her plate with the thinking that she could eat hers while myself and my mum were eating our starter. The waitress just took the other 2 plates away and no one then came to explain what had happened with the starter or offered and apology. After sitting for a further 20 minutes, not one staff member came over and checked how my grans meal was, or to see if we had received the starter. In fact no one even looked in our direction when they were serving other tables. After sitting for nearly and hour and not even had a starter I had decided enough was enough and asked the bar staff to charge me for the 3 drinks and half portion of roast dinner so we could leave. I was then told that they were a chef down and that the original waitress had forgot to put through our starter. I understand these things happen but they need to be communicated to your customers. If we had been informed of this we would have understood but no one seemed to want to take responsibility. There appeared to be a lot of inexperienced staff on and judging from the loud conversations we overheard from behind the bar, there appeared to be a new till system installed that no one knew how to work. To top it off my grans half portion of roast dinner came with the tiniest dribble of gravy and a burnt and cold Yorkshire pudding. Overall this was a terrible experience and really ruined what had been a lovely Mother’s Day up until that point. Sadly I won’t be back.

Kids meal was burnt. We were given the wrong bill. Not shown to our table and all we could hear was a man screaming and swearing in the bar area. This place has really gone downhill.

For me it ruined the evening

Firstly, the menu on line was different from the one in the restaurant. This normally wouldnt be a problem but one of our party was vegan and there was only one choice on the menu. The chef did say he could make a pasta dish thou. We ordered bread and drinks soon after arriving. The drinks arrived 40 minutes later after asking three times and the bread a further 5 minutes later. The main courses we good and tasty and value for money but the service was awful.
