First impressions were spoilt by the smell of floor cleaner in the bar area. The staff also seemed slightly overwhelmed by a large wedding party which took up most of the bar and the restaurant on one side of the bar.
We had pre-lunch drinks on the patio at the back, which is a lovely setting. When we asked about our 2PM table we were initially told they were not serving food until 3PM due to the wedding party. When we reiterated that we had a booking we were told we would be dining at the other end of the bar in a separate area. This area was light and spacious with a good view of the park.
Service during the meal was somewhat slow and the staff needed prompting for glasses (sent back twice as dirty), butter, condiments etc... The wine we chose off the limited wine list was not available. However the substitute we chose was very good. The quality of the Sunday roast was also very good. The kitchen seems to be the most competent part of the operation.
We asked for dessert menus, but after 30 minutes we gave up on waiting and went to the bar to pay. We were then told the card machine was not working so we couldn't pay. One of our party was offered a lift to the nearest cash machine and we paid in cash. For the inconvenience the manager gave us £25 off the bill and a free bottle of wine.
All in all an experience spoiled by poor service and management front of house. I appreciate they had a large wedding party, but this is no excuse for poor service for non-wedding diners. However the quality of the food was very good and well priced.
