Just had the best lasagne and curry we have had in a long time. Staff, atmosphere and beer all to be highly recommend along with the food.

Visited with family on a Sunday afternoon. Surprisingly there was no roast available however there was plenty of choice from the menu.
The food was exceptional however the service was extremely slow. We felt very sorry for the poor girl serving us as she was the only member of staff visibly on duty and was clearly under pressure waiting tables, serving behind the bar and dealing with a number of customers in the lounge/bar area.

Our friends took us to this restaurant as it was one of their favourites but by the end of the evening they were embarrassed to have recommended it.
It's a reasonably nice looking pub restaurant with two main dining areas as well as a cosy bar lounge space. On the face of it the physical attributes to be a good restaurant.
I should have been warned however as soon as I ordered a drink at the bar when I heard 3 of the staff trying to decide whether they should charge a customer for some sauce - no-one could decide!
At the table there was confusion between 2 staff who gave conflicting info on what dishes were off or had a limited number available. Having placed our orders a promised wine list never turned up until they were reminded when our starters arrived.
The main courses were modest in size and rather plain in taste, their speciality curry having very little heat or spice.
The desserts could have come straight from 3rd party suppliers.
The couple on the table next to ours experienced worse. One received the wrong main course and the other had a burger dish that was unedible. The waiter gave some sort of explanation that it was the chef's first time doing the dish and had confused some of the ingredients!! Whether it was an on the spur of the moment lie or the truth, neither was acceptable.
Overall the food and service that evening were poor. Our friends could not get us out of the place fast enough and couldn't explain how it had deteriorate so fast.
