On a good recommendation we arranged to meet a friend for lunch at The Kings Hotel as it was a convenient location for us all. Our first impression was that it had been renovated well, and had a nice atmosphere. Sadly things went downhill from there, with very poor service, and dry over-cooked food. Two of us ordered Salmon Fish Cakes on a bed of wilted spinach, with rocket and hollandaise sauce, and our friend ordered the Kings Club Sandwich. The fish cakes were full of finely minced (not flaked) salmon with possibly potato, and deep fried, the accompanying wilted spinach was minimal, and the smear of hollandaise added nothing. The dish required moisture, and a ramekin of hollandaise would have helped. The chicken in the sandwich was overcooked, and the bacon burnt. Service was poor and very slow, requiring repeated requests for food and drinks, and after two requests for coffee which never arrived we cancelled the order. Even when we requested the bill, this had to be ask for twice. As you can imagine, this was not an enjoyable experience, and a disappointment to our friend who was visiting from the States and was only in the area that day.
