Visited for a Sunday breakfast buffet with the family. The whole experience was just awful, upon entering the young lady 'pottering about 'never greeted us at all. We sat down still waiting for the lady to come over and do the spiel, no nothing! Eventually I got up I went over to her and said "excuse me could you tell me how the breakfast buffet works? "her reply was "you pay at the bar and give your ticket over then its one plate and one visit per person. "The family and I looked at each other "hmm one plate one visit? not much of a buffet "was all of our thinking. Against my better judgement and with a very hungry teenage boy we agreed,hey its only £3.99 each!!Big mistake ,Huge! The server came out and asked us if we wanted 1,2 bacon,sausage,hash brown and what kind of egg he then told us to help ourselves to beans/tomatoes/toast. My husband and I ordered a cappuccino and our son ask for apple juice (they don't serve it!)the drinks were machine based and awful. The breakfast was so much worse, fatty bacon, cheap favourless sausage, cold beans, deep fried and greasy hash browns, and only white bread for toast. The thing that got us most, after (going to the states lots) or just understanding the definition of the term 'buffet '.being served your food and being allowed one plate, one visit, is not what we understand to be a buffet. I know some of you who read this will think "its £3.99,what do you expect?" our answer would be a buffet, and decent food look to the states or even Toby Carvery for an example on how to do a cheap tasty buffet breakfast.
This was to be our first and hopefully many visit to Lincolnshire Poacher however now we will never return.
