3/5 Okay

an old building with pretensions to something more
A very pleasant old building, with loads of character. The first room we were shown to was unprepared with used items from the occupant the night before. We went to another room which was ok. One of the owners swiftly made the change when it was pointed out to her. We also dined here and the food was reasonable, not inexpensive, but both steaks we ordered as medium rare were more medium-well done. When pointed out as usual, you really never know whether the message gets through to the cook/chef. Another case of overpricing for an average meal.
