British food often (undeservedly) gets a bad rap in my opinion - everybody that we have taken to the UK has been blown away by the the food. It's nice to finally see some of the really great aspects of british pub food brought into the Gastro-pub concept.
We ate dinner here on a Saturday night. The place had enough folks to have atmosphere without being too crowded or loud. We had made reservations and there was no wait to get our table. They have a nice selection of wines and beers (including Boddington's on draft, which is a personal favourite).
Our server was friendly and helpful, never far away when we needed anything.
For appetizers we had the soup of the day (potato and leek with bacon), baked brie in pastry with apples, vegetable samosas, and seared ahi tuna. All were delicious.
Main courses we chose were the lamb burger with tzatziki (very tasty and perfectly cooked), liver and onions with bacon (against really nicely prepared and presented with mash and seasonal veg), chicken curry (in true british "pub curry" style with flatbread and raita), mussels and fries.
The bill, including drinks was around $180 for 5 - we didn't have room for desert and we brought home a doggie bag, so portions were very well-sized.
A very nice dinner, true to the spirit of a gastro-pub. Definitely recommended.
