We found the bar staff and wait staff friendly and flexible. I'd booked the table for 12:30pm but we ended up not taking the table until almost 2pm as we had a few pre lunch drinks! I guess the fact that it wasn't busy and there were lots of tables helped but still nice of them to be so accommodating.
Between the four of us we had the burger, the Sunday roast, the chicken kiev and the corn and jalapeno fritters. Steve had the burger which looked impressie and the chunky chips were delicious.
The Sunday roast came in a cast iron pot with veggies and gravy and Rachel and Tim enjoyed that. I think they almost forgot there was no mash when mash is a crucial element of Sunday lunch!
The chicken kiev I had was definitely enjoyable with the potato rosti and coleslaw. The breast meat was moist and the herb butter oozed out as it should . The crispy coating wasn't too think and whilst I initially thought coleslaw was a strange accompaniment, it actually went well with everything. The croquettes were also crispy and then fluffy on the inside and I liked the chilli hit.
All in all we had a jolly good pub lunch at the Grace Darling. Probably not great enough that we'll become regulars and frequent every Sunday but enough to add it to the list of pleasant places to while away a Sunday.
