Visited for lunch with my daughter. After a very tasty starter from the main menu, we ordered battered cod and steak pie from the lunch menu. The very surly waitress brought breaded haddock - when my daughter queried that this was not what she ordered, it was greeted with a shrug and a "that was what you asked for". Her virtually untouched plate was cleared away without comment. Twice the waitress actually walked away whilst we were speaking, and on one occasion actually shouted to us across the restaurant! We then ordered the cheese plate - there must have been at least 8oz of cheese in each portion!! The cheddar was clearly just removed from the packaging and cut in half. Value for money perhaps, but most off putting, to the extent we barely ate any of it. A polite gentleman, who we assume was the manager, kindly wrapped the cheese up in foil for us to take away. £55 for a lunch we hardly touched! Our first, and last visit!
