We were having a late lunch, so accept that some menu items may not be available to us.When we sat down we were advised that roast beef was finished, two pork roast left as well as the main menu. The four of us ordered, two of the orders came back from the kitchen as not available. i asked for clarification as to whether there was ANYTHING else unavailable, I was assured there wasn't. Oh yes. there was. Back came the server, two more items not available. It took 20 minutes to actually get our main course meal in, then once we had finished our starter, we had almost a 30 minute wait for mains.On a leisurely Sunday ,not a problem, however, it meant a train back to London was missed, therefore we had to "waste" an hour, waiting for the next one. In fairness to the staff we didn't forewarn them, as we thought we had so much time, we weren't rushed in time for the train, just dreadfully delayed by the kitchen service, and the waiting staff not being upto speed on what was still available and what sauces came with the dishes, so having to go back into the kitchen to check what dishes consisted of. Maybe avoided if the menu was more explicit in its description.
Out of the four of us, one meal, the chicken, described as delicious,two, a house burger and a ciabatta sandwich, alright and one, the fishcake,really not very nice, at best tasted as though it had been kept warm too long, at worst, re heated.
Our server , who was very pleasant, did attempt to make amends, by offering a complimentary dessert each,by then we had all lost interest.
