Rang ahead to book a table and were pleased to hear they served food until 18.00-a rare thing on a Sunday. It was explained that due to an earlier power cut there may be a slight delay but as the weather was so lovely we were happy to sit outside that bit longer. It took my partner a while to order our food and drinks at the bar as a group of fairly rowdy and intoxicated residents staying there were taking up most of the bar mans time. The location is really beautiful and we have visited many times over the years. We were however, disappointed with the food. I had the turkey dinner, my partner the beef. It was warm, not hot and the Yorkshire puddings were burnt, as were the carrots. The limited veg was mixed in with mashed potato and the beef was quite tough. It was quite tasty but not the standard I recall from my previous visits a few years ago. As time passed the rowdy group continued to drink, a few lay asleep on the tables and the language others used wasn't really appropriate for the time of day. The serving staff were very pleasant but seemed very flustered and in need of someone to take charge. Not sure the two chefs drinking beer and smoking during service is such a good advert either. Overall, I would probably return to try again as the power cut may have thrown things off course and the location couldn't be more perfect on a sunny day.
