"Both myself and my wife have visited and enjoyed 1539 on many occasions, mainly during the week. This was our first time on a Sunday and sadly it was quite a disappointment. First, surely these days you should provide a decent vegetarian menu. Soup and a vegetarian tart is NOT a menu. Sadly the food was also quite cold, obviously our dishes had been waiting some time before serving. We will come again, but hopefully with a better menu."
