My partner and I are staying at a hotel just down the road, and stopped by here for breakfast this morning. We both ordered pancakes with crispy bacon. The picture on the menu showed lovely crisp streaky American bacon on a nice stack of pancakes. What we were presented with was rubbery pancakes, and normal 'English' back bacon. I know you. Isn't think I am being fussy, but this type of bacon just doesn't go with pancakes and isn't what was pictured on the menu - Otherwise I wouldn't have ordered it.
I also had a coffee, which was served to our table in a cup that was as coated on the outside in coffee as it was on the inside.
The person who was dealing with us didn't understand what I meant when I commented on the wrong type of bacon the first time when the food was put down in front of us, he took the plate away and returned it to me with the bacon a bit more cooked (by the way, my partner had three rashers of bacon, and I only had two?!). Anyhow, I thought I would give it a go, but I had a couple of mouthfuls of pancake and it was like eating rubber. So We had to call over another member of staff that actually spoke English who was very helpful, took the food away again. We didn't want anything else instead, so just paid for the drinks and left.
Will steer clear of any Garfunkels in the future. I can make better pancakes from scratch at home myself.
