Booked a table for the family on May bank holiday as they were doing an offer for 3 courses for £16.95. We thought this was good value having been here before a few years ago. I was left a bit short changed after the high expectations we had. The waitresses were disorganised and didn't communicate with each other. One said one thing and the other said something else and practically did the opposite of the younger waitress. Drinks orders needed to be asked for and the service wasn't free flowing. A small glass of orange juice was more expensive than bottled coke? Starters were great, but the experience ended there sadly. I ordered honey glazed gammon, with parsley dressing and the others nearly all roast beef. When both arrived, we were all disappointed with the serving. My gammon wasn't gammon, but thin sliced honey roast ham drowned in oily parsley sauce. The beef much the same, but did look a bit more appealing. We knew the price was good, but corners were severely cut to get costs down. Finally desserts were pretty average, but most of all not much choice. If you didn't like what was on the board, the only other choice for the £4.95 allowance was 2, that's right 2, scoops of ice cream. All in all, poor performance for a highly rated tea room, and left feeling a bit short changed. Ditch the starters and put the cost saving into the mains and desserts. £16.95 per head for lunch is on the slightly expensive side, so quality should have been there.
