Excellent food, service, surroundings but you do need to book to get into the restaurant even out of season when everywhere else is quiet. It is a bit pricey but worth it

A most charming and characterful Dining Room with attentive, friendly service. Unfortunately, the food was a big let down, poor quality and overpriced. The wine we had, although pleasant didn't match the £18 price tag.

Nice room, pleasant waitress, poor food.
Starter: Probably the worst soup I have ever been served. No taste, uncooked veg - soup sent back.
Main: Chef unable to offer alternate sauce to accompany requested sirloin. Steak only average but accompanying food disappointing.
Coffee: Better than expected.
Note: No reduction for returned soups, nor apology from kitchen.
Value for money: Would have been fairly reasonable if food quality had been better; as food quality was so poor the meal offered very little value for money. Soup £6 Steak £17

Food OK but perhaps not as good as the prices might suggest. Service not outstanding either. Waitress tried to clear the table when we were still eating and I have to say I felt I was being patronised a bit by the chap I took to be the owner. We met some people who had eaten there two nights running who had had what they described as a great meal one night and a poor one the next. I know this place gets a lot of good reviews and I'm sure it has desreved them - personally I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.

I was looking forward to eating at the pub having read the reviews on the site. The pub is a fantastic looking pub and has a nice feel to it. We enjoyed having a drink in the pub before hand but the food was a very different experience. The stafff were not very friendly, rushed and lacked knowledge. The food itself was poor - tempura crab (lacking crab and the batter was better suited to a chippy in Cleethorpes!), on sending it back to the kitchen the response was "you should not look at what you are eating!" The fish and chips - the chips were staurated in fat and the batter was as crisp as a piece of lettuce. King prawns - cooked ok but lacking in number for a main dish. I would suggest you give this restaurant a miss!
