Wanted to like this place - contemporary decor good, light dining space upstairs, short menu all boded well.
Starters both good (something to do with roast pork and black pudding and I can't remember what I had but I liked it). Our eight year old really enjoyed her sausage and chips (very good chips).
Main courses missed for both of us though. Went for a burger as I fancied something simple.I was aware that it had blue cheese with it (big fan of blue cheese in general) but somehow they had managed to combine two things I really like to make something I really didn't like. Decidedly peculiar taste - couldn't finish it. Even large amounts of mustard couldn't mask it. My wife had something described as confit chicken burger with chilli (or similar). A simpler description would have been regular chicken burger. No evidence of effects of confit or chilli to distinguish it from anything you might get in 1000 other places. She described it as boring.
We were both puzzled by the side of spring greens we shared. Turned out to be peas, beans and leeks. Green yes, spring no. How does mis-describing stuff help anyone?
Beer good, food presentation good, service needs better coordination (two people came and asked us the same thing more than once) and someone needs to think about some of the menu descriptions.
This place could be really good but isn't operating at that level yet.
