A large group of us went here for dinner on a Friday night (we had a reservation). If you order before 6pm you can choose from the 'set menu' list for something like £14 for two courses. Some of us arrived a little later so we ordered straight off the menu.
The service was alright-the young guy serving us was polite & mostly attentive.
I think for me it was all the little things that were left off that made for a less than amazing experience. I was surprised when I ordered 250ml of wine to discover that it wasn't poured into a small carafe & served as I needed it, rather all 250mls were poured into one giant glass. Perhaps this is the 'norm' in the UK? I am certainly glad I ordered a red & not a white as it would have been well & truly warm by the time I had finished drinking it.
I ordered the grilled salmon which appeared to have been 'grilled' in a bath of oil, this made the whole meal oily & not particularly nice, such a shame for such a lovely piece of fish. The burger was also acceptable, just a beef burger, nothing to write home about.
What irritated me the most the whole night was that the waiter was not prepared to make a slight alteration to the set menu. One of the kids didn't like any of the desserts on the list (which included creme brûlée, Eton mess & frozen yoghurt, to name a few) & instead asked if it was possible to have two scoops of ice cream.The response to this, what I found to be a fairly reasonable & inexpensive request, was a resounding, no!
In order for the child to have ice cream he had to pay an additional £2.50 on top of the price of the set menu. I know it's not a lot but for 50p of ice cream I thought it outrageous; especially seeing as the other desserts on the set menu were roughly £5 each. It's this kind of inflexibility that you leave thinking to yourself, really?! Really?!
All in all, we wouldn't recommend this place nor go back, I am sure there are much nicer establishments in the area serving comparable if not better food.
