Why is it my wife always gets the bad meal! It happened again here I am afraid. There were four of us going to celebrate with our daughter and he fiance so I hoped it would be good.
we all had three courses and it was very hit and miss. It was a Saturday and the restaurant was full. we booked early but got placed next to a very large and very busy table of 12 so I expect things were fraught in the kitchen. The starters were fine except for my wife's whitebait, which were swamped in batter, dry and looked like they came out of a freezer bag. The mains were all nice. Judith had a cheese souffle which was delicious however the salad she got with it was simply rocket on its own dropped in a pudding bowl. My pork was great as was the Rib eye steak, excellent meat from Devizes butchers. Their ice creams were very tasty and you pay by the scoop but then it was disaster time again for Judith. Her souffle was a liquid mess as they admitted when serving it. More a milkshake than a souffle. The meal with drinks and wine for four came to circa £130 so you would expect no mistakes.
Did we enjoy it? Well three of us did but felt sorry for the fourth. Would we go again? Yes because we would select a time less busy and we also like the bar and setting very much.
