It obviously ticks the box for many people ...
We have not eaten here for a while and won't be in the near future but there were plenty of people there so it just proves that you can't please all the people.
We were asked quite quickly for a drinks order but after that the service was "discreet" - if that means no-one came near us, asked about the food, if we wanted anything etc.
The wine arrived reasonably quickly in a cooler and left on the table. No offer to taste just do it yourself. We are quite capable of pouring a glass ourselves but it is unusual not to have at least the first glass poured for you.
We went straight for mains which were ok but nothing special - lamb rump with colcannon. Fairly simple but the lamb was not particularly tasty and was quite tough. Vegetables are not included and were not inspirational (cabbage, carrots & broccoli) and this obviously bumps up the price (e.g. nearly £19 for Belly Pork).
Desserts were a mixed bag e.g. meringue with clotted cream, whipped cream, ice cream & sauce sounds like a diabetic nightmare. I'm not sure what the definition of a Torte is but the Tiramisu & Amaretto Torte was more like a flat slice of biscuit base with brown blancmange not like any Torte I have ever had. At £6.75 each not at the lower end of the market either.
At the end of the night it was a good evening, due to the Company and wine (!!), but, in our opinion, not somewhere to rush back to.
But it's always busy ...
