Still the same......



by Chris - Sunday 28th 2003f December 2003

A few years back I would heartily recommend this place to anybody (I did, many times) but sadly this is not the case anymore... 
It seemed that after the 'change of management' a couple of years back things started to decline. 
The management has since changed again & things have not improved. 
What do I mean? 
Well, after two disappointing visits we decided to 'leave well alone' for a year or so and see if things improved, therefore we decided to try again while xmas shopping last week. Mistake. 
Initial service was quick and the place was clean, tidy & welcoming. Good start. The menus were still rather sparse & didn't appear to have been updated or changed since our last visit (a year ago approx). 
Ok, no problem we ordered a starter & drinks. 
Drinks duly arrived, well, one did, the other,a coke, took an additional 10 mins.... 
Starter (for two) was a bbq wings and wedges type affair which sounded great but the menu didn't state that it was served with lashings of melted cheese (which I hate, sorry) so that was that.. 
The main courses - Mine was OK, but my better half didn't eat ANY of hers as the vegetables were cold, hard and almost colourless & the lamb casserole smelt like, well, sewage (Honest). 
The dessert menu was just a piece of monochrome photocopied card with nothing appealing to either of us, but to be honest my wife had lost her appetite & wanted out pretty darn quickly.  
At least they didn't charge us for the sewage and the waiter was friendly and helpful (hey, we did leave a tip!) but in short I won't be going back to F/L for quite a while methinks.........
