I had mains of chicken breast, spicy mash, mushroom sauce and veg and Nav had Congrio fish (very similar to cod, but had slightly bigger flakes), roasted potatoes and veg. The food was quality. Exactly what we needed. The beer on the other hand wasn't all that. It was a locally produced fruity beer.
