We had booked a table for Easter Sunday quite a while ago. On booking my Mum asked whether it would be the normal Sunday Lunch Menu and was told it would be. She requested a table for six at 3.30 to be told this wasn't possible we could make it 4pm. We were not seated at our table until at least 4.30 which I know although it was a busy Sunday I feel is unacceptable. No apology. The menus were on the table when we sat down which were just the normal menu not the Sunday one we asked whether this was right to be told yes it was.
We had to ask the staff to take the order again not very customer friendly. We asked to order wine to be told he would send someone over to take that order. Surprise surprise no one came. Starters came promptly all very good.
After a wait the main course came. On previous visits the veg had been lovely and as a family who love veg we were very disappointed. The battered cauliflower was amazing but to serve carrot and swede and carrot and cabbage is a little strange. it looked like the cabbage had been cooked with the carrot as it had taken on a very strange orange colour not very appetising. I wonder whether this was the veg that was served at the start of service or whether they had run out and cobbled this together.
We have visited a number of times and as this was a special day with family we were left very disappointed

What a lovely surprise - this is a great place to eat and popular too, so it's probably worth booking. The deserts were great - really nicely presented and very tasty.

Having received the taster session as a gift for my partners birthday, we weren’t entirely sure what to expect. However, upon arrival we were greeted warmly and escorted to our table... despite being rather early! Drinks ordered and arrived swiftly, and the waiter politely asked if we were ready to instruct the chef to commence.. the table opposite’s food arrived and looked amazing! And a short wait later ours followed, and we weren’t disappointed!
Followed by another six courses, each with a unique twist on a classic dish. Portions were larger than I would have anticipated for a taster session but the staff happily slowed things down so we could take our time.
All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable evening, and I’m sure we’ll be back with the rest of the family so they can have the same experience!

Very poor quality steak and then nothing can be done about it. They told me that they had a problem with 6 oz steaks that night. 22/03/18. Will not visit again.
