We ate here one of the two nights that we were staying at the Tower (separately reviewed under Hotels) and, although the meal was OK, it was certainly nothing special. The kitchen may not have been helped by the fact that everyone appeared to have booked for the same time but that is surely something that should be managed.
The menu majors on steaks and perhaps they would have been a better choice. A starter of mussels, although in an interesting chilli-based sauce, was overcooked. Garlic mushrooms, however, were fine. Rump of lamb was also good although rather expensive for the amount of lamb, the dish being bulked out with a mound of bland and ungarnished mashed potato. The slow-cooked beef was good in parts but much of it was tough and some of it was gristly.
The place is, however, clearly popular and it may just be that we ordered the wrong dishes. Having said that, a restaurant should, of course, be capable of preparing everything on its menu with acceptable care and attention to detail and this doesn't seem to be the case at the Tower.
