We were those annoying customers that arrived 15 minutes of so before close, however we were warmly greeted. Overall I was happy with MY food, though the sauce for my Moules Mariniere wasn't the best - a bit powdery, though my Red Mullett noodle dish was lovely. My partner ordered Brixworth (the best btw) pate on toast, which would have been fine if it wasn't just a slice of dry white toast (triangled) and a lump of pate, no pressentation, no butter, just careless really (see attached picture). What do you expect? You might say, and indeed you should, but,,, we moaned about the pressentation, likening the bread to something out of a Tesco's basics square loaf. The description was taken back to the kitchen, and the waitress returned saying it was Oliver Adams bread, she also gave us an equally dissapointing piece of toasted french stick to replace it, burnt at the edges. No effort to take the plate away and re-pressent it with a little more care. I then told the waitress that the pressentation was that of someone not needing to care at home, a lump of pate and toast, and that it was just a shame. Her face soured and off she popped. Anyway, we left it and carried on. Was slightly annoyed when the bread waitress returned with an 'is everything alright now?!' which appeared distinctly patronising, she seemed to think we were just being difficult, with a smile to make you sick. So that's a star down on service. On the other hand there was a particularly lovely young waitress that looked after us otherwise. My partners fish and chips was under seasoned, or rather not seasoned, but otherwise beautifully done, lovely batter, etc, oh and he had a nice chocolate brownie for desert. I'd like to try it again, and hopefully be able to offer a better review. Not bad, don't get me wrong, perhaps just not their best day.
