Trip advisor is a pain as you can choose average or then leap to very good.. Truth is I cant call it either as the food was very good but the service is poor so affects the whole experience.. The good news is I had a really lovely lemon chicken and chips meal. It was beautifully cooked and the flavours were really very good. The chips were lovely. It does annoy me though that a main dish does not have a single vegetable in sight.. Why not? Do I really have to pay extra for a bit of 20p carrot or green? The squid starter was also really lovely and cooked to perfection so I would definitely return to eat.. The not so good news is that the service is not good and I have experienced this on other visits here too.. The outside area is particularly confusing.. Is there table service near the door or isn't there? Last time I was there I got told there was and brought a menu but no one came back for my order so this time as there were no outside staff visible I just ordered inside but then there is a wait at the bar.. You can see staff dotted around but they do stand about chatting a lot so it's much easier and quicker to just go in and order at the bar.. Today I waited quite some time at the bar too as there was only one guy available.. admittedly he was working his socks off but with so many of us waiting for service there's clearly just not enough staff..a shame as it's a nice place and clearly has a good chef.
