Easter Monday lunch. Upon entry we were impressed with the front of house staff and beautiful refurbishment of an old building. The aged mirror behind the bar being a highlight!
We were over faced by the excessive menu. We counted over 20 main courses.
We ordered two sharing platters to start. Although very well presented they lacked variation. A baked avocado starter was also massively under seasoned.
Then on to a selection of main courses all presented very well. However the execution was just not there. Some pataoes had far too much pepper and the vegetarian lasagne seemed to have no salt at all.
Finally the deserts (Apple pie, passion fruit meringue, banoffee and shortbread)
were imagination but instantly forgettable.
The service was inconsistent. We had a different member of staff for every order and delivery to the table.
In our opinion it wouldn't take much to sharpen the experience of this place. Less choice on the menu, consistency of waiting staff, an obvious host in the dining room and seasoning needs to be checked on each dish.
