Decided to venture out to this pub/restaurant with recommendations from a friend that the food was excellent.
Unfortunately although the pub itself was cosy with fabulous views my meal was not so!
Decided to choose from the blackboard menu-I had lemon sole,the hubby John Dory fillets.Meals arrived piping hot-disappointed to see mine had tasteless boiled new potatoes-however the sole looked ok.After a few mouthfuls I came across something strange within the fish-it had an unpleasant odour.It looked like roe-what bothered me was the smell!Spoke to the waitress who agreed it looked strange and was quite large-she whisked my plate off to the kitchen behind the green door.Expecting an apology or to be asked did I want something else.She returned with said plate and declared “Chef says it’s ok it’s the roe and ok to eat”!! No way was I going to eat something that smelt like sweaty socks!!!
Needless to say we decided to miss dessert and just wanted to leave.Complained again at the bar when paying the bill-the sole was £18-but no refund offered!
Needless to say I left angry and hungry!
Will be voting with our feet and will not be returning.
On the way out also noticed that it only had a 4 out of 5 food hygiene rating-what’s that about?
Such a shame as the setting for this place is lovely- if you eat there-choose carefully!!!
