The Moon & Sixpence, Hanwell

Nice setting and surroundings but inside the moon & sixpence is rather sterile and soul less. The staff, except for the cheery head waiter, looked bored and seemed disinterested. They weren't very attentive either. Nobody checked to ensure we were enjoying our meals or that everything was ok.
The restaurant was set nicely but the food was expensive for what it was. Also not much choice for vegetarians or fish eaters on the menu (only 2 fish dishes). We waited ages for our starters even though the restaurant wasn't particularly busy when we arrived.
Several of our dishes had ingredients missing or not as they were advertised on the menu. For example the vegetarian salad should have had feta cheese; there was none, sundried tomatoes; replaced by chopped cherry toms and roasted peppers; they were raw. One of the mains, sweet potato and mushroom stroganoff had no sweet pot in it but loads of peppers and onions (not advertised on the menu). The sauce was thin, like the consistancy of single cream and the accompanying vegetables weren't served in a seperate dish as is normal practice but appeared to have been thrown randomly onto the plate which made it look like the dish had been assembled by a 5 year old.
Have heard the bar menu is good so might give that a go next time we're in the area but won't go out of my way to go here again.

The Inn At Farnborough, Farnborough

Very good food. However the landlord is rather stand-offish and the staff seem to see this as how they should also behave.

Service was slow although we were the 1st to be seated in the restaurant. It got very busy and I felt sorry for those that would be in for a very long wait for their food. The waitress needed reminding several times of our request for a jug of water, then mustard, additional drinks and she also forgot our tea and coffee orders. The food isn't cheap (I don't mind paying for quality) but you expect better service at these prices.

Would give the benefit of the doubt for another visit as the food was good with a varied menu, but if the staff attitude hasn't improved we won't be back.

The Iford Bridge, Christchurch

Much better now it's been refurb'd but don't bother eating here. The food is dire, small portions and often has missing ingredients, ie a curry that came without the bombay potatoes because they'd run out. They refused to substitute it with anything else because "it's all prepackaged and measured out" Also expensive for what it is.

Ok for a drink, quite smart inside but often not enough bar staff to cope at busy periods. The big plus here is that they only allow children over 14 and that's if they are accompanied by adults and are eating in the restaurant. So at least you can drink in peace and quiet with out brats running around!
