We used to enjoy eating at the restaurant and having not been there to eat for a couple of years we looked forward to going back for the Sunday lunch which was always excellent. On walking in the restaurant seemed to have changed, it looked tired and more like a school canteen. We were left hanging around waiting to be seated for quite some time even though there were lots of staff and very few diners. The drinks took a long time and when they came they were wrong, the starters were okay but the veg with the main were overdone and nowhere near as nice as they used to be. The biggest problem (after the food) seemed to be a dis-organised group of young staff without any strong leadership. Having served only 4 of the 5 main courses and with no cutlery for us to eat, the waitress asked if we had everything we needed!
This place always used to be packed on a Sunday and it was not surprising that it was now half full given the change. The couple next to us had a catalogue of errors with their order and finally left without paying after a couple of mouthfuls of the main course as it was so bad.
Such a shame as we are unlikely now to go back having gone there for 15 years.
