Courthouse Market Grill - report: other opinions ?

Dined there Friday night for the first time - cottony, somewhat stale rolls served with absolutely tasteless whipped butter were an inexcusable start to the evening. A minuscule portion of carpaccio was followed by two medium-sized lamb chops with a salty but otherwise unflavoured jus, grilled as ordered, accompanied by a piece of allegedly stuffed lamb breast that was tough as old shoe leather, assorted vegs and adequate garlic mashed potatoes. Pleasantly citric lemon tart filling was spoiled by its entirely lacklustre commercial-tasting pastry base. Service was affable in the 2/3 empty cavernous room. In sum,I judged it an altogether undistinguished restaurant with fairly high prices and little distinctive to recommend it. Wouldn't go back. Did I hit an off night ? do other hounds have recent experience of this place ?
