We ate here as a family of four with two children, 8 & 3 years old, on a Saturday afternoon.
We were told on arrival that there would be a minimum of 45 minute wait for the food, which should have rung my "steer clear" alarm bell, when I observed the restuarant wasn't full.
You find a table, note the number, order at the bar, source your own cutlery and wait for your food, going to the bar whenever you require more drinks, similar to a Wetherspoons.
I ordered the Chicken Cacciatore, from the specials board, my wife ordered Liver and onions, and we ordered Haddock & chips for the kids to share as there was no junior menu, and therefore no chicken nuggets, etc.
the drinks were around £4 each, including the Stowford Press.......which really annoys me when you pay a premium for a drink and its served in any old glass......would you accept coke in a Tesco Coke can? (Just a little bug bare of mine)
The dishes came, in at £10 for the chicken and about £8-9 for the others. None were large, and the haddock consisted of two pieces of breadcrumb covered fillets which would have come straight from the freezer, and came with chips which were cooked quite nice.
The other dishes were complimented with veg of broccoli, carrots and green beans.
In all the food was OK which i guess for the price was acceptable, and the service about the same, noting that they were consistant with their prediction of the 45 minute delay.
If you know or hear of a good recomendation in the village, I would stay with it as this place is never going tomset the world on fire, or put Burley as the cuisine capitol on the map.
I would compare the quality on par with JD Wetherspoons, but more expensive.
In fact, in lieu of any other good recomendations, ill take a packed lunch next time!
