“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Wife and I tried the early bird menu tonight. menu looked good and price was great. the member
Of staff that greeted us and took us to our table was very friendly so far so good!
I chose smoked salmon and prawn cocktail starter followed by Steak sandwich served with mushrooms and onion rings with chips and my wife who only wanted a main course chose
Beer battered fish and chips.
service was good and whenever the dishes arrived the presentation of the food was excellent.
My starter although it had obviously had been sitting pre prepared for some time it tasted fine
(Although) the prawns were the smallest I have ever seen! Again so far. So good.
However although my steak sandwich was good my wife's fish was tasteless and the fish flash
Was really Grey in colour. after pushing it around her plate for some time she ended up just
Eating the chips.
when we asked for the bill the waitress noticed the fish unbeaten and when we explained she
Took it back to the chef. Within a few moments she was back with explanation that the fish
Had not been from their normal supplier' and that he had used a substitute! WHY?
If fairness they didn't charge us for the fish, but instead of getting a nice professionally. Cooked
Meal she ended up with some chips and a glass of wine
For a restaurant that has only recently opened and that's trying to gain a good reputation
This is not the way to go about it
wouldn't be in a rush to return

“Big let down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Had a disappointing meal last night at Cartins Mill. My partner ordered a seafood chowder for a starter which arrived luke warm. We both ordered steaks as a main course which were average. The staff service was appauling as the staff did not come over to check that everything was ok or to take a drinks order. When advised about desserts we were told that @ 7.30pm they had ran out of numerous desserts and the only 2 desserts available were chocolate desserts. When i complained about the selection the waitress came back 5 minutes later to say there was now apple pie. Unimpressed with service, premises were cold and atmosphere was unwelcoming. When we went to pay the bills were mixed up another tables which took 10 minutes to sort out. All in all not a great 1st experience

“disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

First visit to restaurant under new management. We were looking forward to a good meal but were so disappointed. Two of the party had garlic mushrooms for starter which lacked any hint of garlic. The salmon and prawns starter was also disappointing. We hoped for something better in the main courses, but yet again the standard was poor. The food generally lacked flavour and quality considering the cost. As I waited for my husband to pay the staff member who had just served us asked my sister and I if we would like a table!!!!

“First experience of new restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

I have always used trip advisor when choosing my holidays and restaurants but this is actually the first time I have ever written a review,but thought I had to after the terrible meal my wife and I had.my wife ordered garlic mushrooms for starters which on a whole we're ok I ordered moules marinare which were a bit cold but ok ,it was the main courses where the problems were my wife ordered chicken farce aptly named on the menu it was described as chicken breast wrapped in bacon stuffed with herb stuffing and covered in a creamy sauce , it came out after a long wait half a breast a leg with not much meat on it no bacon or stuffing my wife complained the waitress ariived back with the same chicken and bait of bacon and stuffing I ordered the special a ribeye medium it came out so dry it had to go home to the dog. We complained to management were offered a drink my wife had a glass of wine. The whole bill came to £57 way over charged for the quality of food,when paying our bill we were asked how our meal was and we told them all they could say teething problems they have been open two weeks All in all a bad experience lets hope it gets better.
