Here I go again!!! You would think I would be beginning to learn not to go out for meals but I must always think, go on this time it will be better!!

As I have said before I am a vegetarian and always get so peeved with what we are offered. The menu here had I think 3 or 4 options for me which is better than normal so I opted for the Thai Green Curry after the waiter’s recommendation. We waited for quite a while after we had placed our order, no big problem as we were busy chatting. Our dishes came, all made out to look impressive I suppose with all the usual separate dishes which basically are there to make you think you are getting more than you actually are!! No need and just a palaver if you ask me!! Anyway my Vegetable Thai Green Curry consisted of 3 HUGE chunks and I mean HUGE of courgette (or it could’ve been cucumber it was hard to tell!), I think the chef must have lost his knife! and about then the tiniest slither of yellow pepper possible (must’ve found the knife for them), swimming in a green pool of yogurt type, very tasteless sauce! Another dish containing a tiny amount of rice, not nearly enough to soak up the runny tasteless sauce and in any case I never got a spoon to transfer the runny sauce from dish to dish!! Oh and the nan was nowhere to be seen so asked the waiter who returned with a tiny square sandwich type bread, which I think could well have been a Warburtons thin!!! So yet again no I was not happy and no I didn’t say anything, fed up with it, and basically does anyone care…..no! Oh and that will be £13.95 for that offering.

Also the booth that we were seated at the pad on the seat was ripped to shreds!!

Needless to say I won’t be back!

We arrived for lunch and promptly greeted by staff, shown to a table, offered drinks and lunch menu. There was a variety available to suit all tastes. Good food, great service and reasonably priced. Well done Newmachar. Keep up the good work. Look forward to a repeat visit soon.

A last minute decision to eat here on a Saturday evening.lovely decor and a very cosy feel. Good choice of food.some lovely twists on some classics like the stovie Bon bons my parents had. For being busy,we didn't wait too long for courses. We were so stuffed, we couldn't do dessert(next time) average pricing and lovely staff.we will be returning :)

Good menu selection of no-nonsense meals at reasonable prices. Generous portions. Good service. Only criticism is about the number of non-working lights (both in the main restaurant and the gents) and general gents toilet maintenance.
Definitely hope to return next time we're visiting family in the area.
