It feels like you are stepping into a relic from the war, with the dark green walls and the many signs from years past. It can take you one drink to read everything, but how effective are signs as that is all you need to create this atmosphere, add in some rustic pine tables and you are ready to go. All this needed were the old records and record player in the corner as I can imagine people getting up dancing or should I say jiving!
We were missing our Jackie again but I am pleased to report she is out of hospital and on the mend, it’s going to be a slow recovery but she will get there. We had Ally join us today as it was half term, so a catch-up was in order. We also celebrated Sylvie’s birthday, 21 again!
The food here is all cooked to order so no good if you are in a hurry but well worth waiting for as every dish was perfect. There were a few things missing from the menu as they are about to change it for the new summer one. The sausage and mash with the kale, burgers and chicken were all tried and delicious also the presentation was good.
How nice to have some little pots of mayonnaise instead of bottles on the table!
The service was perfect, the glasses sparkled and the cutlery was elegant. But you just cannot rely on the photographer! Or is it that they ate the desserts too quick? There is half of an apple & Cinnamon crumble and not a lot left of the brownie.
The menu is small as is the place but it makes up for it by being very good food. I hear they do a delicious Sunday lunch, a steak night and mussel Tuesdays. Maybe the house wine at £17 a bottle was a bit steep.
We all enjoyed ourselves, next month we have something a bit different, Italian in the garden with two birthdays to celebrate, I can’t wait.
