My wife and I had Sunday lunch here with her brother and his partner. The place was very busy (usually a good sign) and we had been sufficiently impressed on a previous visit to want to go again. This time it was a very mixed bag. I have set out a few points below.
Plus - Chicken and duck liver parfait with apple chutney. The taste and quality of the roast sirloin. Roast potatoes. Salmon fillet. Rustic nature of the restaurant. Quality of service. Choice of beers and cider available.
Minus - Dogs allowed in the same area as people were eating. Quantity ot the roast sirloin (two very thin slices). Toasted brioche that was so dry it broke up into crumbs that the parfait could not be spread on. Absurdly low ex-classroom, uncomfortable chairs (see them on their website).
It's the usual dilemma for me. There is no 'good' rating. That would have been spot on for this place. It is not good enough to get 'very good' from me, so I am left with 'average.'
