This wasn't my group's first choice of restaurant, however with the heavens most certainly opened we were desperate to simply find a warm place to escape the rain. First impressions were decent, it has your standard pub/restaurant décor, and it was incredibly busy despite the appalling weather outside. We were however confused as to whether we had to find our own table or whether we should be seated, there should be clear instructions for this; we also had to ask separately at the bar for a dessert and wine menu, these should be available along with the main menu.
For the starter I opted for a goat cheese's tart which was quite impressive, they did not hold back on the cheese as many places do, although it was a tad sweet with the tomato filling. I ordered a lamb shank for my main course and unfortunately this was quite bland; the lamb was cooked perfectly but there was an excessive amount of gravy which lacked flavour, along with the mash. If this had been around £5 cheaper it would be good value for money, it was absolutely not worth £13. Our waiters in general were great, although one of our waitresses appeared utterly miserable and a smile would have been appreciated.
All in all, a pretty good meal, good service, acceptable food and a reasonable atmosphere.
