Nice wine, puddings were lovely, but main meal disappointing. Steaks weren’t quality meat, thin, no flavour, over cooked and twice cooked chips weren’t twice cooked. Could have been a supermarket steak and cost over £25. Advised the young waitress but it wasn’t followed up by any management as I’d expect or by the waitress.

The vegetarian pasta meal was a joke. It seemed to have come directly from a supermarket packet - the pasta and the sauce - but charged at least 5x the price. We also waited at least 10 minutes after receiving our bill for someone to notice we needed the card machine before being able to grab a servers attention who then told us we needed to pay at the bar. As soon as we stood up to do so, another server asked what we were doing and said he would get the card machine - no clarity.

The service was great. However the vegetarian dish (tortellini) wasn’t fresh or home made. Tasted and looked the same as Tesco’s own brand tortellini. Disappointing and expensive for what it was

Food has been better, from visiting one year ago I can say portions are smaller. I wouldent recommend fhe cheesecake special as base was solid on it - too much gelatine to set it which made it jelly like and the marshmallows had been in fridge too long so went soggy on it. Shame really as usually really enjoy it.

There was a misunderstanding about one of our party’s orders. The server was not at fault, but our colleague was unclear. I hope the server does not have any problems!!

2 of our 4 main courses were nicely cooked, but the other 2, the Hake and poached egg were overdone and the steak was well done, when she’d asked for medium to well done. We did not complain at the time as to have it cooked again, would have meant them eating their meal after we’d finished.

Service was pretty slow as we sat for ages, after being put to our table. We did say one more was to follow but she came 2 mins after we had sat down. Two of us asked for water & we got two pints of lager? No use when I'm pregnant. The waitress only heard "pint" as to "pint of water". She did come and apologize. Its a mercy the other waitress paid more attention to us. My steak wasn't that hot but we had waited so long, I couldn't be bothered to say anything. I also only realized afterwards, that I didn't get the usual salad on the plate that always come with it? For the price of around 25 pounds for my main course, it wasn't worth it. I'd been better off being at home and making it all. The girls enjoyed theirs but certainly room for a lot of improvement. I will say, the puddings was nice. I cant see me being back in a hurry, which is a shame, as I've been loads but this is the 2nd time in a year that I've been disappointed. That might not seem much, but your not going to keep coming back, unless its been brilliant.
