Arrived on a Saturday lunchtime to use our Living Social voucher and ordered a drink in the bar which was served by a not too friendly barman
We had booked and we proceeded to our table in the restaurant which was quite cold due to a heating problem but we were not too uncomfortable. There was an excellent choice on the menu and our starters arrived quickly but mine was missing part of it as per the description on the menu, the staff were very busy with a full complement of diners and we could not attract their attention.Our main courses arrived and although were piping hot we were disappointed that my husbands fish and chips used frozen fish which was quite watery and my rack of lamb was more fat than meat but did have a great flavour and the accompanying vegetables and potatoes were plenty for two people.
We mentioned these points to the waiting staff but all we were told was "I will tell the kitchen"
We drove up from Newcastle and felt the meal and service was just ok but I was glad we were not paying the full prices as it would have been poor value for money - I doubt we will return.
