Very Nearly Perfect. 02/04/11 Party of 17 (yes seventeen). Not pre-booked 5.30pm Saturday
After a walk in the area our group arrived at this establishment and after checking they could accommodate us made our way in. Menu selection was varied and prices ranged from £8 up to nearly £20 for main meals and deserts were close to £5 each. Because we were such a large group we expected a lengthy delay in the production of food and we did endure this. After about 45 minutes wait the meals were served and in the majority of cases every thing was perfect. However, one of our party had been served the wrong potatoes and vegetables with their meal and when they pointed this out to the waitress were rather rudely told "that's what you ordered" and she turned and left. It subsequently transpired that the person who had taken the order had got it wrong but no apology came from the waitress and this is why the score is marked down (so imagine how good it would have been without this episode!!). However, the portions were a very good size, the meals were cooked very well and everybody said they enjoyed their meals. The deserts were rather short on a varied selection but those that did have deserts thoroughly enjoyed them. All in all, I think they coped admirably with such a large party on no notice, but I'm afraid the rudeness of one waitress spoiled the atmosphere and experience.
