Having not been here for many years I was looking forward to trying the food again.
On arrival we were greeted warmly and sat at a very nicely laid table.
The ambiance was excellent, and our orders were taken without delay.
Four of us all had the same starter a tian of prawns and avocado, the main course however was disappointing.
A grilled plaice was served with strange vegetables, roast potatoes and cabbage , which would have been fine with meat.
Three of us had pork fillet which was acceptable but the meat was dry ,served with mashed potatoes and carrots and a tasteless sauce.
Overall the main courses did not live up the ambiance and service.
Living locally we were sad that nothing we had today would tempt us back again.
The kitchen could do with a bit more imagination.
