I had dinner here with my family while back in the UK visiting mum. I liked that it was a free house and had a good selection of local beer, I tend to choose these over a pub that is owned by a brewery. Beautiful building on the outside but lost a bit of the charm inside, the menu was what I was looking for, up scale pub food using local sources and obviously chef driven. The execution was close, Steak and Kidney Pie was delicious, chips (fries) were the best I've had on this trip. Razor clams were sandy and over cooked but glad to see them on the menu. The Wild game pie was a good effort but lacked flavour. The deal breaker was when I had the cheese plate and it had come straight from the fridge, what a waist of good cheese. I mentioned this to the restaurant manager (I think, not our waitress who was great) his answer was right out of the past. "Well we don't get asked for it much". This is the type of attitude that gave the UK such a bad rep when it came to food, thought we were over that. The other desserts on the table were also very good. I would have given a 3.5 but can't give half points.
