Lets start with a positive. The building is an historic pub with a good bar atmosphere.
The Harvey's was cloudy and not well kept.
A miniature tonic water was £1.65
Let's move onto the restaurant.
The service was amateurish with staff clearly given no training whatsoever.
There were only 2 tables occupied for the obvious reasons to follow.
The "daily changing menu" had 3 items not available after orders were placed, which is just very annoying and a failing in the kitchen and management.
As there were no customers they could not have run out that day.
The wine was forgotten, the water was forgotten and so was the ice.
"No worries" was the ridiculous oft repeated phrase from the well meaning waitress.
Yes there were!
The wine was plonk, undated on the wine list and overpriced at £24.
One glass was cracked.
The soup of the day changed 3 times before we found out what they had left!
They ran out of duck.
They ran out of cream as "the last customer had just had it on their dessert."
Strange as no customer was on a dessert as I looked at the other table.
If you run out of stock on a Friday night-you have no chance at the weekend.
The food, whilst much of it was reheated, was not too bad and deserves 6/10
The asparagus was fresh as was the sauce and poached egg.
The rest was way below par.
Get yourselves sorted and you could have a good food business.
Expensive and not worth a visit as you will be disappointed.
