Now renamed I presume after the wonderful Chef as we remember her on our previous visit four years ago. Our previous visit was amazing. We and a tasting menu with beautiful locally sourced ingredients and organic wines.
However upon our return the restaurant inside we did not see (it was reserved) but were told they would take us for lunch as a party of two. Seemingly with reluctance. No-one appeared to be eating and the one waitress was busy serving drinks to none diners.
We seemed to wait for ever before the owner reappeared with menus. "It's this page" and was gone again. A confusing menu of food groups but no real indication of portion size or what dishes should be combined to form a meal. The owner returned to take our drinks order. A glass of wine, water, a small beer and a coffee. These took over an hour to arrive and no water. Still no-one else appeared to be dining so the kitchen can't have been that busy.
The waitress then got very upset as later arrivals started walking away. We maybe should have legged it before the drinks arrived. I went to speak to the waitress to ask for the water and tell her not to be so upset as the owner didn't appear to be helping at all. Maybe she was devoted to the three tables in the dining room I managed to glimpse?
As I returned to the table the food has arrived. The chicken was not mass produced but a local farm chicken. Excellent in flavour but slow cooked over what may have been a number of days judging by the half a roast potatoe that accompanied it. It certainly didn't take nearly three hours to make it's way from pot to plate to patio. Is was cold.
So sadly a once revered and much to be applauded restaurant is woefully badly managed.
