Wish I had found this review site prior to our visit. What a shame. Firstly table not set for correct number of guests, despite booking in and being at bar for drinks. Ordered 1st bottle of red wine which was perfect. Sat for meal and oh dear, the goats cheese and beetroot salad for starters becamw a game of hunt the goats cheese - 4-5 teaspoon size prtions mixed with 2- 3 pieces of beetroot in loads of mixed lettuce. Ordered roast chicken for main course, have never in all my days have I seen chicken served in such a way. I am a qualified cook and would never dream of serving chicken as they did - 2 portions of 2" x 2" x 2 1/2" pieces, including skin and bone. When the dish of vegetables arrived there was hardly enough for 2 let alone 5 persons, they did bring extra but only 1 portion. Having picked off the chicken there was barely enough for a child let alone an adult portion. You get more at a KFC bargain bucket for much much less. The price for this was daylight robbery. Ordering a second bottle of red wine, which was deliverd to the table with condensation on it, it was so cold, when asked, the waitress advised us that it was a problem for them as they had no suitable storgage for red wine to be served at room temperature, and would we like it placed in front of the fire for a while.!!! Ordering a sweet of a treacle roly poly pudding was also a mistake, £5 25 for a portion which left much to be desired. To end the evening 2 of the party had a coffee, and when the bill arrived, we had been charged for 4 and also been charged for puddings we had not had. This was rectified bit what a dissapointing evening. We were unable to complain on the eveing as the guests we were with had recommended the venue and it would have been very embarrasing.Certainly not a good evening and not value for money. I do not mind paying for a nice meal but this meal was certainly overpriced for the quality of the food. Will not be going again and will not be recommending this restaurant to anyone.
