Latest review:

Good, friendly service, accommodating staff. Starter was a terrine, worked rather well. The steak was a tad overdone for my tastes - I had requested blue, but it was more on the medium side of medium rare. Decent enough, despite that. I am happy beyond measure that I tried "the famous Rat sauce" before pouring any onto the plate. It is awful in ways I can't even begin to describe. It might be OK in place of butterscotch on a pudding (it is sweet enough to cause diabetes just by being in the same room as it) but shouldn't be allowed anywhere near steak, or chips for that matter. The pudding was the redemption. The chocolate sauce was spot on, the sponge of the pudding was light and delicious. Vanilla (specifically not the menu's recommendedation of Turkish coffee flavour - why would you do that?) ice cream worked to round it off. Overall, a decent meal let down only by a truly appalling sauce and a questionable desert combination, one easily enough fixed ahead of time, the other an unknown that could only really catch you unawares. If you're thinking of going there - do. It's worthwhile to try out. But do yourself a favour and avoid the rat sauce.
