I went for lunch with a small group of friends. We were made very welcome and sat inside at a large round table. The room was full of atmosphere...beamed ceilings etc.
The gentleman serving was a little laid back until we asked for the wine list...quite expensive. We chose a rose from the Stanlake Vineyard which was truly excellent.
Most of us ordered starters which arrived promptly and were ample and delicious. Most us ordered dressed Whitby Crab for the main, some had duck which looked and apparently tasted excellent. The flavour of the crab was good but there wasn't enough in proportion to a rather dull salad. In fact I'd never experienced crab served in a scallop shell before!
The dessert - traditional summer pudding was as it should be.
Normally I wouldn't manage three courses at lunch, but I actually left hungry.
To sum up the quality was excellent but portion control seemed rather strict and the lunch was far too expensive, even considering it was all British or local produce.
