Was given a £50 meal voucher for this restaurant, so thought we should visit before it expired. Chose a Friday lunchtime. Nicely kept garden at the front of the hotel, and beautiful old buildings form the hotel rooms by the looks of it. Arrived promptly at 12:30, and greeted by inexperienced but friendly waitress. We were the only people in the restaurant, so seated by the windows overlooking the River Ouse, which was good. The restaurant is clearly part of a wedding venue, and must be excellent for functions, but without other patrons, it was soulless and flat. Ordered from the lunch menu. A shared sea platter was nicely arranged on a wooden platter for a starter: large prawn each and a few shreds of smoked salmon acceptable, Thai crab cake some distance from Thailand, definitely closer to Iceland (not the country!) as were the goujons, and breaded prawns. A pot of warm samphire a rather odd accompaniment to this frozen food selection, but nice to have something fresh on the plate. Mains of fish and chips and chicken/chorizo on a skewer. Fish the standard version eaten daily at half the price at pubs all over the country, but acceptable with thick freezer chips, a smear of peas and pot of tartar. The kebab spectacular on arrival, but truthfully overcooked and tasteless, with a limp red cabbage slaw also tasteless, thin chips straight from the freezer, and some undressed salad from a bag. Two glasses of average Pinot Grigio and a bottle of sparkling mineral water. £60 before service charge is very poor value for 3 plates of processed food, and will not return..
