It began with a half hour wait in the cold, followed by an uncomfortable hour in the crowded bar area (if animals were treated to the same crush & discomfort I expect Jamie would have been first to the barricades). Once seated, however, it was clear that the name of the game was to get our party of three fed & out as quickly as possible (our table had already been used at least once by the time we sat down at 2.30pm). The food was definitely not worth the wait & inconvenience. We shared a home made bread selection that was bland (the olive oil & balsamic vinegar that accompanied it provided the only flavour) & stuffed crispy rice balls that were equally flavourless (& only partly rescued by the spicy tomato dip). The main courses were of variable quality. The grilled chicken was properly cooked & flavoursome & the medium rare steak turned out to be very rare & indigestible in parts. The lowest point was pasta (undercooked & chewy) with roast wild rabbit (overcooked & leathery). We passed on desserts (we treated ourselves, by way of compensation, to some delicious home made puds in a local deli), but made the mistake of ordering cappucinos (milky, flavourless coffee).
