Our first visit to the old spot and what can we say....?

Well the food was to die for, well presented and full of flavour. But as the other reviews have indicated , the service was terrible. The head waiter was more interested in pleasing his friends than seeing how we were. It really spoilt the evening that not once did the anybody ask us how the food was, and was there anything else they could get us and that was a real shame. I wouldn't recomend this place if you wanted the full package great service and great food. I doubt the old spot will even read this review as they seem more interested in the local villagers welfare than finding new business so don't bother if your Visiting.

There was no soft music playing as you would expect of a place like this. A real let down on the simple things.

The dinner will set you back about £90 - £100 for 2 people for a bottle of wine and 2 courses. With that price you'd expect service to be at its best and not the standard of a local burger king.

We had a superb lunch and found the staff very friendly and are surprised how some found it otherwise...really surprised.
The food was of a very high standard and it was a delightful experience that we will certainly repeat

We had booked our table and were very excited to experience this restaurant, we were put at a table with the most uncomfortable seating ever, the food was good but the attitude of the staff was uncaring,it really spoilt our night and cost of the meal was high which would have been o k but not when our waiter thought he was doing us a favour just by serving us, lots of better places to eat

Food was delicious, especially the soup. However I found that the menu you was quite limited. Very nice location.
