We have been regular visitors over the past ten years and have seen a number of changes of ownership.
It is good to see the property re-open after the last owners went out of business.However while appreciating the need for the new owners to get settled, a few months on there are still some issues in the restaurant.Service is not always that good (diners are often left far too long before orders taken or between courses) and the quality of the food is not consistent (varies from excellent to very poor).Some pricing seems a little excessive - £10.50 for a starter of three scallops and a little black pudding and bacon.(We especially miss the superb 'trice cooked chips' - now sadly replaced by fairly bland ones).
The pub seems to be as busy as ever however the restaurant seems to have nothing like the number of diners it used to have.
We are happy to have a drink in the bar and perhaps something to eat in the superb pub garden however we no longer go to eat in the restaurant 3/4 times a month.Perhaps we'll try again in a few months..... (ever hopeful!).
