On a short visit to the area, popped in for a quick bite.
The menu looks reasonable from the outside and the prices indicate at least a stab at quality. However....
A smoky smell greeted us, which we soon linked to the previous day's wood burning fire which was piled high with ashes.
Surroundings are dark varnished wood, cold and dim.
Despite the prompt and friendly attention of the waitress/barmaid, the end product was disappointing. From a selection of burgers starting at about 4 quid, I chose the BBQ, which for a 30p difference was a dollop of BBQ sauce on an ordinary burger. And I'm being kind when I say 'ordinary'. Dry and chewy. Complemented by a wet shredded 'salad' and some supermarket coleslaw. Chips were 1.90 extra, but were incongruously tasty.
My companion had a simple cheese and pickle toastie, but for 3 quid would have expected a bit more than 'value' pan bread and rubber cheese.
The only visible employee was friendly and quick enough, but even with the limited choice in the town, I won't be back.
And by the way, the smell of the fire ashes lingered and we had to immediately change and shower back at the hotel to get rid of the smoky reek from our clothes and hair.
