Very disappointing. Nicely dressed tables with white linen and silver service and a nice waiter. The menu was completely uninspiring and there just didn't seem to be any love, imagination or creativity in the menu options. So much so that I only had a starter and dessert. I've never gone to a restaurant and not ordered a main course. I had the fish cake for starter. It was bland and on a bed of rocket that had no dressing. A small little asian type of salad might have been a nicer accompaniment. One of the group ordered 'plums' for desert and what came out was half a plum! When I brought this to the attention of the waiter he did bring out another bowl with 1 plum. Just not up to scratch. I have no problem paying good money for good food but I do have a problem paying good money for food thats bland and uninspiring.
