Yesterday the food was very disappointing. Toad in the hole was a solid wedge of undercooked batter and the selection of veg was two carrot sticks and a parsnip! Fish and chips very good. Pudding, apple and rhubarb crumble was tasteless and the custard was a solid lump in the jug. Very disappointing £60 spent.

The friendly staff were very attentive and the chef, as always, happy to slightly adjust the menu to suit. This is what I appreciate the most, that the staff try their very best to deliver to your expectation. A man was dining with his wife, who had dementia, the staff were very kind, it was very moving.

Just a bit concerned about the cost but that’s me out of touch I suppose. Ordered a club sandwich which was very nice but why breaded chicken ? I remember club sandwiches from years ago and it was chicken breast. What’s wrong with that? If it ain’t broken why alter it??? Thought it was a fish finger!
