Looked out this place to eat about 5pm on a Sunday afternoon. Got a lovely table at the window in near the bar. The decor is superb - dark but full of history and charm. One of the two waiting team in the bar came over and lit the candles on the tables and I expected him to come back to take orders. No. Then others came and sat at the bar and they were served. Then the other waiter came and cleared the table next to me. I waited 25 minutes to be able to order a drink. No apology.
I ordered clam chowder and then the battered fish and chips. The bowl of clam chowder arrived in two minutes and was really good and hot. But I was no more than half way through it and the fish and chips arrived and was put down on the table. Again no recognition that there was anything amiss. So finishing my soup I turned to the fish and chips but there was no cutlery delivered with it!! No waiting staff around to call so after getting up to go to the bar I eventually found something to eat it with. The response was that the grey haired waiter thought that his younger colleague had set me up.
The chips (fries) were excellent and a large pile of them but the fish was a disappointment. There were five small 'cigars' of fish in a really thick breadcrumb like coating - the coating was about 50% of the thickness of the fish portions.
This place was reasonably busy but by no means full.
