Mary had a Yorkshire Ham terrine to start which was a bit on the heavy side but very flavourful, while I had grilled sardines. Initially I treated them like tinned sardines or whitebait - I ignored the bones. Mistake. They were full of tiny sharp bones which took a while to spit out, but after that stupidity on my part I removed the bones before eating, and the little fish were delicious.
Mary had Salmon with Lemon Risotto for her main:
while I had pan fried chicken breast with lentils:
Sticky toffee pudding (unusually served without custard, ice-cream or cream) and cheese and biscuits followed. Mary was particularly impressed by the goat cheese, the name of which we have forgotten. Lunch. for two with tea, diet coke and two coffees, about £40. Was it worth a food rating of "1"? Just about. Everything was really nice and well cooked, the place was comfortable and service was friendly, but it didn't quite have the spark of specialness that J Baker or The Star Inn have.
