“Mediocre and overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2008

We were given glowing reports of this restaurant , but found it mediocre and very overpriced. Have been to a Michelin starred pub in Rutland where prices were similar but food was very very different. We did not get any bread with starter and the lamb I had was tasteless and boring. surrounding were not too bad , but got the feeling they were trying to cram as many people in to restaurant as possible. Drive out into leicesterhire / Rutland for some wonderful food cooked by talented chefs.

“Appalling landlord and landlady”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2008

Just returned home from what should have been a lovely meal with my husband. Pleasant atmosphere and nice decor, quite contemporary. We ordered several dishes, one being a starter to come with the main meal. We asked if this was OK with the waitress and she informed us that this was not a problem. The food came, quite nice but as the cheapest main course was gammon at £11.95 you would espect it to be nice. When our bill came they had charged us for a main course instead of the starter we ordered. We queried this, very politley I might add.
Nothing could have prepared us for the the torrent of rude and absolutely appauling response from both the landlord and landlady. They both appeared to work vey well together in bullying anyone who dared to complain about anything. How they run a pub is beyond us, safe to say, they have gone through a few pubs over the years, never staying in one place too long.
Give them a try, the food was very nice, as was the setting, but woe betide anyone who dares to compalin, you will be as shocked as we were with the outcome.
