Having dined at The Inn at Torbrex tonight with my wife, son and daughter, I can only say that we were disappointed with the meal served.
To be fair, the establishment appears to be a popular choice of the locals, as it was busy both in the restaurant and bar.
The service was good, with a warm and friendly welcome from the serving staff, but of the food we ordered, the only item that received pass marks was the Burger and Chips ordered by my son, who enjoyed it thoroughly.
On the down side, my daughter ordered the Carbonara which appeared to have been given an overdose of garlic. On top of this, the bacon pieces within the Carbonara, which although plentiful, were solid and difficult to chew, whilst almost without taste, possibly due to the afore mentioned ration of garlic.
My wife ordered the Chilli Con Carne which came with a heavy helping of cheese. This only served to bind the meal into a thick goo, which obviously got thicker as it cooled.
I ordered their Torbrex Beef Pie from their "Specials". This arrived with chips and veg, both of which were very good.......especially the chips, but the puff pastry was clearly burnt and the beef had a slight tang of something I could not clearly identify, making it an overall poor choice on the night.
In the end, only our son left satisfied with his meal, whilst in discussion as we awaited our bill, the rest of us agreed we will not be rushing to pay another visit any time soon !
