But therest of the food was excellent. I had duck which cooked perfectly will definitely go again. The ambience was lovely, no rushing courses.

Fish pie was excellent , packed with fish and nice creamy mash topping. Husband had roast pork; excellent crackling, meat going a bit dry but plenty of extra gravy so ok. All vegetables excellent. Wine was petillante, but manager changed it immediately for a different wine.

Can't complain about the starters or main courses and really liked the complementary bread roll when you arrive. The deserts were nice but the sticky toffee sauce wasn't the best I'd had. Generally however I would highly recommend it.

We were not asked if we would like a drink so then had to go to the bar. Perhaps a minor point but we should have been asked. We were at a corner table with fixed seats and when the food arrived I had sit on the edge of my seat to reach the table which was very uncomfortable. Both us women had fish pie which was very good and we both enjoyed. The two men had Sunday lunch. My husband said the pork was quite fatty (which it can be) and the Yorkshire pudding was a bit like cardboard but there was a good choice of veg which was very good. After the meal we ordered more drinks. The coffee's arrived but no sign of the beer's and a waiter had to be reminded. There was a lot of noise, not so much the customers but the staff. When waiters/waitresses were laying tables they seemed to throw the cutlery onto the table, very irritating, and the man behind the bar appeared to throw bottles from one end of the bar to the waste bin with a resounding crash. Once again very annoying. Because we were in good company we had a very good evening regardless of most of the above.
