How can it become so bad after such a good visit last time? Awful Sunday tea time meal. Slow slow slow. Food mediocre. Thai curry was like water and served with plain rice (on the special board!!!) Burger was dry as leather. Got free deserts...More

Family gathering, lunch was fine some of the meals were better than others, but over all everyone was happy.veg not very exciting on the roast dinners. Kate was really friendly and served our table very well.

So we have avoided the restaurant since May last year due to a couple of very bad experiences but thought we'd give it another go as we were local and hungry. Waited fifteen minutes for any service despite arriving at midday when it was empty...More

The Treacle Mine is adequate. I can't say anymore in it's favour. Every time we go, something is not quite right. This time my wife's Cauliflower cheese was cold. The beer is well kept, but drinks are expensive. It is otherwise convenient and last night's...More

I notice there is "ve = suitable for vegans" in the dietry requirements box but not one of the dishes on your menu has the 've' sign next to it. Can you advise if you are able to make any of your veggie dishes vegan please?
