Well we were disappointed, not with the food, you understand but the reception. Having read a host of reviews indicating that there was not a welcome in the hillside I emailed in advance to warn of a baby in the party. (I forgot to mention we also had someone on crutches) but nothing was too much trouble.
I had been before but everyone else was new to the treat in store. Asparagus and slowcooked egg was lapped up, as was the potato and ramson soup and the scallops. but wait, I forgot to mention the hand made crisps and balsamic foam and the wonderful bread! For mains we had duck, steak, sea bass - all excellent. Was there room for pudding? Yes! The bread and butter was the best ever, the ice cream disappeared very quickly as did the pana cotta. Service was relaxed and friendly, food excellent, what more could you ask for? Everyone enjoyed and the baby slept through the whole proceedings.
When there are so many restaurants which bill themselves as gastro pubs and overcharge for mediocre food it made a pleasant change to eat good food, which while not cheap did not leave the punter feeling cheated.
