    My wife ordered whole fried snapper. It certainly was'nt value for money. It was so fried up and dry it should have been sent back to the kitchen.

    Ordered rare steak. Came out medium to well. No point taking it back unless one person wants to eat alone. Pork for roast was cold.

    The roast of the day tasted and looked like it was left over from lunch. The heirloom tomato salad with smoked salmon had a nice amount of salmon and was presented very well, but the tomatoes did not all look like or taste like they were all heirloom tomatoes.

    Unfortunately received three dead cold dinners, I think they may have forgotten to serve after cooking the food, or staff unavailable, the steaks were also tough and difficult to chew.
