This place certainly looks pleasant, with a warming bar as you walk in. No doubt this would be a welcome treat in the winter months.
On walking into the restaurant however this is where things started to go down hill. Firstly queuing behind another customer who was having difficult with a member of staff that couldn’t understand a question about opening times. English clearly wasn’t her first language. It’s worth pointing out from the outset, the high premiums paid for eating in this tourist trap do not reflect quality in food or service.
We ordered a fish & chips and a mushroom pie. The server was brief but pleasant and the food arrived in a matter of minutes. Unfortunately the mushroom pie was really unpleasant. Basically a pile of bland thick sauce that was vaguely mushroomy flavour. After both trying the pie we decided to ask to change it. We were told this was not possible and we would have to pay for that and any replacement. I understand it’s not the done thing to send something back but this quickly turned into a conflict rather than a conversation with a customer. Being British and so rarely feeling compelled enough to send something we stuck to our guns, with eventual success.
Our replacement duly arrived, a rather sorry looking salmon and cream cheese combination on a shop brought pre-bake baguette.
On the whole this was a disappointing visit and should I find my self in the area again I would certainly be avoiding. There are plenty of other choices locally and now having checked trip advisor I can now see my choice was poor.
