We are locals so great to see the place open once more..Pity they don't take Amex.
Some inexperienced staff. Pricing on the menu was quite high, so high quality food was expected, whereas some of the dishes were disappointing and at a level that we would award only 5 to 6 out of 10.
Finally there was a mildly unpleasant smell when we entered the restaurant.
First visit since it was the old Peacock Inn. Went for dinner with my daughter and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Service was attentive and food excellent. I have another excuse to go back when my wife returns from her holiday with her Dad.
Our third visit for dinner. Food is very good. Wine list is ok but a semi-decent bottle of French red at £40+ seems excessive. Staff and service rather random, too fussy for my taste...three times asked if everything is ok....I would tell you if it weren't !
Always empty even after handing out %off vouchers; not sure that you have your client target base worked out; pity as it's a great space , it's local and crucially the food is good. Hope you fid a way to survive a while longer.
Had Sunday lunch on 9th September and it was delicious. We were met by the manager at the door and taken to our table in the main restaurant which was lovely. We were seated near the nice warm fire and given a moment to choose from the menu, a waiter brought us a jug of water and we ordered the roast beef Sunday roast dinner, it came with a selection of roast and steamed vegetables, a large Yorkshire pudding, horseradish cream and a pot of gravy. I followed up with the sticky toffee pudding and ice cream. The staff were friendly and attentive. We will definitely be returning on our next city break in Edinburgh.
On a positive note the Lodge is a lovely place - but then it's unchanged from Sasso, the previous restaurant.
The starters were all lovely with a special mention for the Haggis Scotch Egg which was very good. The Ham Hock Terrine was tasty but should have been served with bread or oatcakes or something I think - a personal view only.
Main courses however were a mixed bag. The roast of the day (beef) was tough and unevenly cooked to the point that I couldn't really cut some of it with the knife provided. The roast potatoes and heritage carrots were lovely though. The Chicken Kiev was nice if a little dry and strangely paired with an admittedly tasty potato salad. The rump steak was a little tough too. The main thing overall is a wee bit of a lack of attention to detail - this was pretty much displayed by us having to ask for chips with the kids meals - the waiter hadn't brought them with their Mac'n'Cheese and had to be "told" that they came with the pasta.
The young chap who was serving us in the main lacked training too I think rather than being "bad" at his job. Whilst I had comments on pretty much everything served to us at no time was I asked. This is a training and experience thing though and I don't want to be overly critical.
So long story short version is must try harder really.
