We have been to this restaurant a couple of times in the past and have usually got an average sort of meal. This experience unfortunately will be our last. The table was sticky and hadn't been cleaned properly which wasn't a good start. My meal was the roast of the Day - ( Beef with a seeded mustard gravy ).... More
