We stopped here for a meal as it was convenient and didn't look too busy, so didn't really have any expectations. First impressions were that the décor was very dated and the whole place lacked atmosphere, however, the staff were very welcoming, smiling and friendly. For a Saturday evening the restaurant was quite quiet, which I would think was down do the lack of atmosphere and possibly its position next to the main road. The restaurant was also a little on the cool side.
The food, however, was good honest pub fayre. Nothing fancy, but what we had was well executed. We had carrot and coriander soup which tasted home made and came with a piece of warm baguette, and mushrooms in a creamy stilton sauce which was very tasty.
Mains were gammon with duck egg, fish cakes and Cajun chicken. We all chose to have these served with chips and veg. The chips were crisp and fluffy inside and the veg (cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, carrots and peas) were fresh and nicely cooked. The gammon and chicken were tasty and tender and the fishcakes were good as well and all the portions were generous. One of us had a couple of glasses of the house red which was fine.
We didn't have room for pudding so rounded off the meal with coffee, one ordinary and one decaffeinated. The ordinary coffee was fresh whilst the decaffeinated appeared to be instant.
The service throughout the meal was attentive, polite and friendly.
Overall we all felt the meal was good value and we would happily go back again if in the area. It's a shame the décor doesn't match the food and service.
