    It was a mistake to book a Sunday evening. On arrival we were immediately told a list of items that were unavailable which was OK-ish as we imagined they'd had a busy day. We ordered our food. My starter of mushrooms was cold, and was returned. It was little warmer on the second attempt. The topping of breadcrumbs tasted of raw garlic and the bread was stale as if sliced much earlier in the day. I ordered a roast dinner which had clearly been cooked in time for the lunchtime menu. The greens were overcooked, the gravy had separated and yet again, the food was tepid at best. My friend ordered a veggie burger which was also tepid. Her chips were cold. The only thing that came hot apart from the teas and coffees was the mini pud. The waitress spoke loudly so it felt awkward raising any issues. Our order for water was forgotten and a second request had to be made, and a request for a pot of extra hot water to be able to drink tea without milk was at first ignored, then came in a mug. Really disappointing from a restaurant I normally love and which usually has much higher standards. The staff were friendly enough but I can only assume had been on duty all day.

    We sat in the bar area which has a lovely atmosphere. We calamari and Lamb koftas which were delicious and the fish cakes were good and chicken milanese was tasty. Great service staff friendly and very helpful. Lovely wine.

    We ordered pie which was good and hot but veg was cold also potato was cold, also had belly pork which had no meat on one of the plates just a lump of cold fat, than had to ask 3 times for the sides of cauliflower cheese which sauce was like water, so disappointed as this was meant to be a birthday celebration ???? hasten to add we willl not be returning.

    My food- seabass was delicious but the chicken dishes were disappointing. The waitress was pleasant, the manager was rather offhand and very casual.

    This is the second time I have been here as of late and sadly the same issues, the staff are wonderfully polite and friendly however when sitting in the ‘snug’ area you tend to get forgotten about and can go quite some time without seeing anyone, we were sat for 20 minutes before our drinks order was taken and that’s only because I had to interrupt the server. The started were delicious and went down very well however the main courses of Sunday roast were very poor, the meats were dry, the roast potatoes were soggy the veg was over cooked and the crackling was as hard as a rock and we had raw leeks. I appreciate our table was booked for around 1400 and the meat was most likely cooked a few hours before but how any chef could be happy to send that poor quality of food is baffling. A complaint was made and we were given a reduction on our bill which was appreciated but sadly this all deflated the birthday celebrations we were there for.

    Sunday lunch was overpriced for what was received. Whilst the food was tasty, the balance of the plate was wrong and we certainly felt disappointed by the food we received. Service was great and the decor was good, but on balance we’d struggle to justify returning for Sunday lunch when there are far better options available locally.

    We have visited here many times and really enjoyed it, however last Sunday 3/3 we came with my family to celebrate a birthday to find that there were no roasts left and also many choices unavailable. In addition it was not tp the usual standard and would say what we had was so so!. Very disappointing considering the previous visits we have not had any complaints .
