Went for a pub lunch to celebrate a birthday . The food was very poor. Tasteless luke warm soup. Dried up curry clearly reheated possibly more than once andwas in fact just a very small amount of brown mush. Halve a nan which was more like a piece of thick bread soaked in oil and very dried up rice. I asked for mango chutney and I don't think it had been heard of before and they certainly had none. Friends had chips which looked like last nights which had been badly warmed through in too cold oil which, saturated them but left them totally inedible, certainly not crisp on the outside and clearly a reheated stale version when you cut them open. Salad was a very small poor offering of chopped up greens with a bottle of something tipped onto it. One of the worst meals I have had in a very long time and I would definitely not recommend going there to anyone again. It wasn't even cheap, a pub chain would have been more appetizing. Overall not an experience I would repeat or recommend. Possibly somewhere trading on a previously good reputation that has long since disappeared. Evening menu looked very expensive and if the lunch time offerings were anything to go by I would rethink your choice of restaurant.
