Redecorated and under new management. Ate a wonderful meal in the walled garden, superb tender steak and a delicious gnocchi made an unusual vegetarian option. Highly recommended.
We went to The Overstone Arms for lunch on Mothers Day, and definitely won't be going back. It was overpriced, disorganised and very poor quality.
First of all, we arrived half and hour early, but had to wait over an hour for our (booked) table. When we finally sat down to eat the food was very very poor. Bland starters, very bad main courses and then microwave reheated puddings. Some of our group had beef and some had chicken, and in all cases the meat was very dry (our beef really was like shoe leather our kids couldn't eat it), while the veg had been cooked to within an inch of its life very soggy.
Finally, to add insult to injury, they tried to overcharge us! At £22 for adults and £11 for kids, it was already overpriced given the terrible quality of the food. But quite how they made four adults and two kids come to nearly £140 (without any drinks or extras) is beyond me. And there was no apology when the 'mistake' was pointed out just a begrudging acknowledgment.
It's been a long time since I had such a poor Sunday lunch, and given that it was a cut-down 'special' Mothers Day menu they got so badly wrong, there's really no excuse. Needless to say, we won't go back there again, and we'd advise others to give it a wide berth too.
