Many thanks for taking the time to send a review. I am disappointed that you did not enjoy your meal the other day. The menu is curtailed at the moment because of the Covid 19 restrictions but our chef has introduced Chefs Specials which should increase the choice. I would ask you to contact me on your return as I would be more than happy to hear your concerns in person and hopefully be in a position to ensure your next visit is more enjoyable kind regards Molly
