I just had the worst roast I ever had at the Lakes Bar & Bistro. Potatoes and Yorkshire Pudding were burnt black. Here's a photo of what I told the waitress was inedible. She did say "sorry about that", but that was it.

Had dinner here with my Aunt and Uncle and it was a wonderful time. Starters were on point, and the roast (beef, pork and lamb were had by all) were amazing!
