I was tempted by the lunch menu for the favourable prices and reduced sizes. My friend had stilton and peppercorn mushroom starter which was gorgeous. Very flavoursome and nicely presented. Adding a start or pudding with a lunch main is only £3 so a good deal.
We shared the lunches and we ordered: rarebit toastie, which again had loads of flavour and is different from the norm, and cod goujons which was meant to be in a sandwich but we didn't want so much bread so just ordered these without bread. Lovely fish and batter was light with a few chips on the side, just what you want! I don't know if this was for us because of no bread, but it was perfect. Nice to have fried chips too instead of dry oven ones that can be in restaurants. "If you're having chips, have proper chips", as my mum always says.
I had the fudge cake pudding with custard, which was moist and wonderful flavour. To be honest this pudding seems similar across the chains but there's nothing wrong with safe when it's so good.
I was particularly impressed by the service - good old fashioned customer care for not only ourselves, but others nearby we could hear. The owners/staff/managers all seem to take pride in their work, sadly not so common these days. It's a very nice venue too, and ambiance.
We'll be going again!
