Impromptu birthday meal for two, booked in advance as it was Fathers Day and expecting places to be crowded, managed to get a booking, not too late for lunch. Seated promptly, Excellent size of table so didn't feel cramped. Had hoped for A-la-Carte menu not realising there was a set menu on but we should have known better (Fathers Day). Menu still looked good, plenty of tasty options and staff were all very very friendly, patient and accommodating. Got a jug of water to ourselves which I was very happy with. Ordered crispy duck samosas and smoked haddock fishcakes for starters, both surprisingly good, I'm usually wary of fishcakes being dry potato patties of disappointment but these were lovely and light and flavoursome with wasabi mayo. The duck samosas were also delicious, a bit heavier but great flavour combination and the mustard was an interesting touch. Mains were beef short rib which was cooked perfectly, and cod which was tasty. Nice hearty food, not over-the top, no overly fancy, just good food done well, portions just the right size, nice atmosphere and again couldn't fault the staff, who all managed to be cheery and attentive even when the place was full. Family friendly and there were some big groups with kids but we weren't bothered as a couple as there was plenty of space and kids were enjoying their meals too.
