Reviewed 2 January 2014

As near neighbours of this public house we were thrilled to see that it was reopening as a specialised restaurant. We invited some close 'foodie' friends to accompany us on a Saturday evening a week after the opening and visited with anticipation. We were disappointed at first view to see that the 'pub' had not really changed - but noticed that the restaurant area had had a make over and it looked nice. The menu was appealing and we ordered our meal. We were pleased that we had booked and could actually eat in the restaurant as we would not have liked to eat such a special meal in the bar area. We thoroughly enjoyed the food , it was beautifully cooked and well presented, there was plenty of it and lots of freshly cooked veggies. Our friends were disappointed as they had requested specific dietary requirements and these were not totally met leaving them with only one of the three vegetables. They were offered an alternative to the potato however, Had this review been just about the food I would have given it five stars as the food was lovely , our friends perhaps would have given it four stars - but we were disappointed by just two things - for whatever reason we did not feel very welcomed by the staff and the music was just too loud for the restaurant but we asked for it to be turned down and it was - but it was early days and we will try the restaurant again.

Our polite response.
1. The decor in the bar used to be a very dark colour scheme of Racing Green, Rusty Red and Nicotine Yellow walls. The colour scheme now is, Artic White Walls and Bar Servery with Pink Panelling.
2. Your guest did not like butter and cream in their food. You ordered 2 Trio starters one was cooked in butter for yourselves and the other was cooked using Virgin Olive Oil. The vegetable dishes on that evening included Dauphinoise Potatoes and Butter Nut Sqaush. The Dauphinoise are made with cream, an extra dish of Saute Potatoes, cooked in Virgin Olive Oil was given to your guest. Non of the other vegetable dishes had butter on them and as explained to yourseleves at the time neither did the Butternut Squash have butter on it.
3. Our waitress knew you personally, so why you felt you did not recieve a warm welcome intrigues us.
4. Please note: we encourage our visitors with dietry requirements to inform us when making a reservation.

Regards
Mr and Mrs Hatton
