The drinks glasses were... More

Sorry about your the 'dirty' glasses but the problem was the rinse aid on the glass washer machine that was set too high and thus left a white film on the glasses. I have mentioned to the cook to be more aware of getting all the meals served at the same time. More

We ate 3 times at The Cottage and were pleased with all 3 meals the portions were generous and served with a smile. When you go try and aim for Monday night when they serve the 7 hour slow roast pork it is a melt in the mouth moment.
