Starter: cullen skink with oatcakes
Verdict: sloppy with luttle amount of fish and bread instead of oatcakes
Starter: home made pate with toast
Verdict: tasted store bought and came with oatcakes.
Main: roast of the day (chicken) with all the trimmings.
Verdict: roast tatties burnt, yorkshire pudding was rank, chicken didnt look like roast chicken. Was actually brrast cut in two big chunks woth runny gravy.
Main Rib eye with pan gried onions, mushrooms, veg and chips.
Verdict: steak cooked well and tasty. Onion rings instead of pan fried onions, veg and chips ok.
Pudding: banofee mess
Verdict: sickly and stodgy.
Service: wrong items served, after main I was asked if every thing was ok? I gave feedback as above minus pudding as I hadnt eaten it yet. I was told I should have said earlier.
Chef came out and said breast of chicken was better than roast chicken. Clearly a difference of opinions. He then admitted they ran out of carving chicken. Why I wasnt simply asked to chose an alternative is beyond me.
Chef then sarcastically said do you want roast chicken now? Well no thanks id rather have my dessert.
Price. Slightly above expectations.
Overall: looked promising as a traditional pub restaurant. Decent decor and busy enough.
Really not great food though.
Wont be back in a hurry.
