Came here for a 50th birthday and I wasn't very impressed. I had visited on many occasions previously but this time the accompanying mashed potatoes were bland and the food over all wasn't great. It's not the cheapest place either but the quality was poor

We are a 3-generational family of 12 who will be visiting the historic sites the area in late July. Considering a late-afternoon or early evening stop at your restaurant for some delicious food as noted in the many favorable reviews. What is the dress code for that time of day on a Saturday. Thank you for your reply!

I have had lunch here a few years ago with my family, and it was great-however my next trip in a few months I will be going solo. My question is can I have something to eat in the bar with a pint? I do not need the dining room experience this time around.
