Went here for the mothers day 3 course meal with a family group. Place was all set out including the function room (where we were sat) so it looked like it was a popular place. From the start the room was bit cold and the music (which seemed to be a CD on loop despite the live performer in the next room) a bit loud. Tables looked good though and all the mums had a small Thornton's chocolate box at their seats too which was a nice touch.
It was 3 courses for £16 and it started fairly well although my sweet potato and carrot soup was a little under-seasoned. Main course was a carvery with a choice of beef or turkey as well as a sea bass dish, or a veg wellington. The beef was really quite good, well cooked and tender. The roast potatoes weren't at all crispy and the yorkshire pudding wasn't worth touching - tough and chewy.
Despite the standard of the main course I decided to risk the creme brulee for dessert but it was a bit of a disaster. It was overcooked to the point of being solid, not creamy at all. The blowtorch had also barely been near it and the top wasn't crispy at all. The accompanying shortbread biscuit was also overworked and a bit tough.
Drinks were ok, at one point an orange juice was a bit watery (clearly not fresh, probably post-mix) but this was replaced without fuss.
