Trying to find somewhere quick to eat on a Sunday lunchtime, we dived into here. It has changed considerably from when I last visited which was admittedly several years ago. The atmoshere is rather 'over-done' with a wealth of 'olde-worldy' beams and bits and pieces, which somehow do not convey authenticity. We ordered food from a Wotherspoon-type menu, and decided on the all day breakfast, for quickness. The meal took over forty minutes to arrive. The place was busy, but not crowded, and not everyone was eating, by any means. The waitress apologised for the delay, which was due to some sort of mix-up in the kitchen. I guess that in fact the meal had been sitting in the dumb waiter for some time, because the sausages were warm, but the eggs, bacon, and other bits and pieces, tomato, mushroom, beans, etc were all cold. The bacon was served with congealed grease in the rashers, of which there were admittedly three, all stuck together. For the price, this was very disappointing, and I felt over-charged for what I had. With two drinks the bill came to over £25, I am afraid it may be several years before I return.
