Deadliness of starting adventure

Recently been running the first adventure from the starter set “darkness dwells”.
The enemies appear to be seriously overpowered and it’s very difficult to negotiate your way out -the party are at risk of being wiped out in first combat which feels harsh! am I missing something? It feels to me like the adventure is somewhat of a lesson - shouldn’t that allow the players to fail trying but without instant death?Any thoughts?
