My partner is diabetic & we needed to eat sooner rather than later. As this looked slightly less 'tired' than any of the other places in this town, we made the mistake of buying lunch. Oh dear! The omelette was definitely one of those frozen "rubber" omelettes that the big frozen food suppliers provide: zap it in the microwave & bung a bit of grated cheese in the middle. It was dressed with a few dull iceberg leaves & tiny quantity of tomato. A prawn jacket potato was similarly uninspiring (and rather watery).
Unfortunately the whole experience was like being back in the '70's. The world has moved on, but not here sadly

The appearance of the exterior looking better than a good few of the other properties in the street, we thought the menu looked reasonable and went in. Then we spotted whitebait among the starters and chose that, with roast lamb to follow. The starter comprised a good amount of pleasant salad but only 15 whitebait. Still, you don't get whitebait very often these days, so we made the most of it. The main course, though, was a bit disappointing; the gravy refused to move and we suspected that it, and possibly the vegetables and meat too, might have been there since lunchtime (it was nearly six o'clock when we visited) so we felt it resembled an overpriced school dinner. No complaints with the service; the waitress was pleasant, helpful, polite and speedy. Can't say we would visit it again, but then the whole town seems past its best.

Went here for lunch and had the lasagne, firstly our order was given to another table which they apologised for and gave a complementary coke. When the food came the lasagne was nice but I think the chips were frozen and there was a large side salad. The meal was quite expensive and I thought that for the price I would have at least had homemade chips.
Staff were friendly, overall experience was average, properly won't eat again. Not that it was bad just think there is better places to eat in the area.
