The food is good here with a good choice but the gravy is one flavour for all and not very good at that! Same gravy for roast pork dinner, liver and onions and beef suet pudding, I would guess at some type of catering mix, not bisto that’s ten times better than this. Fish and chips great as are most other things just don’t order gravy !

Creme brûlée was awful all the decorative stuff on the top too much. Why mess with a good dish. Very expensive for the quality of the food.
