Table staff were nice enough but the meal was not great. Soup arrived with a piece of white sliced bread (Warburtons we thought) like you’d expect in a cheap cafe. Whitebait was unpleasant- not hot, a bit slimy, and in a very thick coating of breadcrumbs like a cheap fish finger. From the back of the freezer maybe. Good local asparagus.
Then at least half an hour to wait for next course. Fish and chips excellent though the mushy peas were minty and too sweet and a little strange. Halloumi burger good but came with undercooked fries. Sea bass fine, but far short of high standard I’d expect for the eye watering price, and it was served a little cold.
My impression was a disorganised kitchen that couldn’t get the timing right and was maybe cutting a few corners with ingredients .
However, hospitality service has had such a pounding from lockdowns that perhaps we should forgive the blunders. The manager was receptive to feedback when I spoke to them privately after our meal. Didn’t want to make any kind of fuss during meal as would have upset the person who was paying.
Verdict- stick to the fish and chips
