Went here for Sunday lunch having read time out's great review. It was a hugely disappointing experience. The service was very slow at all points of the meal. Starters were lovely and very well presented. However the Sunday roast mains were not warm enough, there was no lamb left (we had booked for 1.45- not especially late on a Sunday) and disappointing roast potatoes considering the price. They then only brought one dessert rather than the two that we had ordered (two of the desserts on the menu were not available- we were not told this when given the menu, but only when we tried to order them). Having asked to see the manager, he was apologetic and said that they were short staffed in the kitchen and as a result he had not been on the floor to oversee the service. He also told us that he was shocked at how disorganised the kitchen was! He did remove some items from the bill and gave us his card so we could arrange with him to visit again. Having read reviews on other websites it sounds like we are not alone in having a mediocre experience here. Even with items removed from the bill, it was still poor value for money.
