We went on a bank holiday Monday night and only went as it seemed to be the only place open in town. Bizzare I thought seeing as it was a bank holiday. Saying that it wasn't busy in town.
We sat downstairs in the cafe area, which although obviously a cafe with the counter etc did have character with shelves of old books and wine bottles . Prior to the starters we were given a complimentary plate of bread stick, olives and sundried tomato's with a mayo dip, which was nice.
The starters were well presented, tasty and fresh. My wife went for a minted lamb main, while I went for the fish pie. Both were excellent, only let down a bit by the limpish side dish of veg. To finish we ordered the icecream with scottish shortbread biscuit and butterscotch sauce. The sauce came in a separate jug for pouring. All of it was superb and all homemade including it seemed the butterscotch. The strawberry icecream even had real strawberries in it! which these days seems a rarety. I think I can honestly say I've not had your bog standard three flavour icecream dessert better anywhere!
The few faults I would pick out were a slightly slow service (although the staff were very friendly) which would worry me if it was busier, the use of paper tablecloths over a nomal red cheque one, which doesn't live up to the food quality and not providing the correct cutlery for the dishes i.e. I had to use a dessert spoon for my sou . The prices were also very reasonable for the quality of food.
All in all a good meal and night out.
