We went to the Tankerville arms on a wet Sunday evening in anticipation of eating dinner. We found seats in a very pleasant bar area - lots of localised lighting, twinkly lights and candles. We got aperitifs and menus but were completely put off eating by the all pervasive synthetic spice aroma from the candles. The dining room was full so it seemed as if we would be eating in the bar which would not in principle be an issue were it not for the terrible, sickly smell. Had we not got drinks, we would have left straight away but we persevered long enough to down a glass of red before voting with our feet!!! The (very) bracing walk back to our hotel was very welcome to clear our heads of the ghastly chemical spice from the Tankerville's candles. we will not return!
