My wife booked this as a mid week dinner for 2 as a suprise for my birthday. The staff we really friendly but it took ages for the starters to come (40 minutes) and whilst it was great they apologised, offering 2 baskets of bread whilst you wait is going to spoil your apetite. The main course took even longer and by this stage the Shania Twain CD was on its second round and I was beginning to lose the will to live but not make a fuss as Claire was clearly gutted. Again the waitress was lovely and came to tell us that the manager had noticed it was taking a long time (so had my stomach!).
When the food came out Claire's fish had been nuked so hard her fork could barely go in but it looked nice. I think that and the amount of time spent waiting (and bread consumed in my case) meant we didnt hang around for dessert.
Really disappointed as I had hoped for great things and a good restaurant around the corner would have been a real bonus for us. There are good pubs nearby (Milton Coombe and Buckland) that can do this without the terrible music and a lot cheaper (£70).
service at table saved it from the bottom score.
