We have eaten here many times on the last few years. This time will be our last. It has a lovely space, which is its main draw for me but I have often thought the atmosphere somewhat spoiled by the proprietors doing ALL the waiting on themselves. With over 50 covers and only two staff the outcome is that they are constantly dashing and sometimes stretched and stressed. You cannot easily catch their eye for extra bread or water.
I put up with it because it is not so bad if they are not fully booked and also liked the simple food. Sadly, on this visit I thought the food had gone off too. Very small meat portions on both of our main courses, and beans which either came from a tin or were seriously over boiled. White beans served with a white purée of parsnip did not look very pretty on the plate either.
I will be testing other places now.
