Everything was very good, especially the smoked mash potato! Our waitress was thoughtful enough to try and get our order in before a large party placed theirs!

Service was first class, nothing too much trouble and our waitress was so proactive, she really made the whole lunch. Well her and the lovely quality unusual local food. Also liked the ability to mix and match from two different menus. She made us feel like the most important customers there.

The quality of food was excellent and very well presented

Descriptors of the dishes - a brief summary which includes some of the main ingredients would allow a more informed choice. They could have been a little more attentive and quicker with menus and drinks. Whilst we recognised there was a large party eating prior to us we sat for some time without either drink and then without menus.

lovely people lovely food it was a bit different - BUT it was just as well it was because they do lunch for £17.95 for 3 courses which means we DID NOT save any money. So, would probably have been better to go for dinner and really that is what Travelzoo should have offered. I know offers for food are based on an average price and not everyone is going to go for the most expensive options but this was plainly not good value and since I always fill this in it would be nice if someone came back with an explanation/apology on this

The cheese board was excellent. The staff were pleasant; but the service became very slow when 10 further people arrived for lunch. Very hot, no air conditioning, fans or even open doors. Even the chef - IT WAS SAID - had collapsed with heat exhaustion and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance that very morning !! Set 3 course set lunch menu was cheaper that the Travel-Zoo offer - including the glass of fizz.

As a company that I know very well via the meat I buy direct from their superb farm shop; I was most perturbed and very upset that the menu we were offered contained NO MEAT. Starter: Chicken croquette, pea/mint soup, or potted shrimps &salmon mouse. I was offered an Asian pork belly substitute that tasted like yesterdays left over and was so tough I had to used my dinner knife instead of the starter cutlery. Main course: Lemon Sole, Beetroot and Goat cheese risotto or Chicken Supreme - that was so tough and dry I could not cut it with my knife (probably needed a steak knife!) therefore did not eat it. Dessert: Strawberry's and cream, ice cream, mousse, sticky toffee pudding or cheese board. The Strawberry's in Champagne syrup and Vanilla Cream, was much to sweet and sickly. the chees board however was the most redeeming factor of the whole lunch experience. However I expect that we were given an extra special selection of 5 cheeses, biscuits, grapes, celery and apple as a sweetener
