We were very disappointed both by the staff and the food.
1) Had a phone call from the restaurant a half hour before dinner to check we were OK with only having a table for two hours - apparently they were very busy and needed it back. Not a problem for us but seemed a bit off when the booking system said they had several spaces two hours later anyway.
2) Arrived at 7 pm to almost empty restaurant - only one other table occupied. We were shown to the pokiest squashed table in a corner and so I asked if we could use one of the other vacant ones. This was refused as the other ones were going to be used later. I asked if they had been booked individually and the waitress said they had not, it was just that it was inconvenient for them to use another table for us!
3) Food came in good time but was very ordinary. "Home made bread" very disappointingly uninteresting. Daughter had belly of pork but crackling and sweet potato chips (her favourite which at 13 she can make better herself at home) were over cooked. My meal of liver was well cooked but fairly insipid.
4) Staff seem to be dim posh girls that do not make for a good dining experience.
Given the chance, go somewhere else instead as it looks promising from the outside but was disappointing. Tarragon the night before was great.
