The wife and I were staying at the campsite and thought that we would eat here to save the walk into town. At first we were not sure if this was wise, but our fears were unfounded.
We both ordered sirloin steak and chips, the wife had a side of peppercorn sauce which was big enough to share,
I did notice a lack of background music, but no big deal although I could hear a few (perhaps just the one) bambino(s) squawking from the family room.
Although service, particularly at the bar was very good, it was more "matter of fact" than pretentious, which to be honest is just the way that I like it.
Food was served in a timely manor. The plates were warm and had a balsamic drizzle which was a nice touch. Worryingly, the size of the steaks was not mentioned on the menu but they were certainly of an adequate size, maybe 8 - 10 oz. The cost of the steak was £16.50 and the sauce £2.95, at the top of the price range for pub food.
Orders for food and drink are placed at the bar. We ran out of ale mid meal and I suppose the waitress missed a sale by not offering a top up, but this is more of an observation than a criticism. I`ll stock up next time.
The meal itself was particularly nice. Steak cooked to perfection (rare), nice chips and the best onion rings ever. It was served with mushrooms and a tomato, but for some reason I was expecting salad - possibly an error on my part?
A really enjoyable meal and we both agreed that it was one of the nicest pub steaks that we have had for a long time.
