I like service and this place didn't have a great deal of it! On arrival we waited for over 5 minutes to be seated, this appeared to be hard work even though the restaurant was empty. It took two people to look at a computer to find my name and then discussion about another tables order whilst they contemplated it!!! When being shown to our table another member of staff tried to intercept the waitress to have another discussion - absolutely rude! We were given two different menus and this took five minutes of umming and arring rather than just getting us two correct menus! Starters were ok from my point of view but my friends mushroom tart was just mushrooms in a pastry case! Our steaks were overdone and no one came to see if we were happy with our meal. I expect a check back even from the local pub when food is served! All in all it was embarrassing as i'd taken my friend there for dinner. The flower on the table was dead - it had probably been waiting for decent service! What a shame!!
