The gallery is amazing, we visited to see a few exhibitions currently on and it was lovely to walk around and see. We decided to stay for lunch and found a table in the cafeteria. I ordered two plates of the risotto which looked amazing. Strangely it came with the option of either salad or veg. Not the accompaniment you would expect with risotto, not sure why fresh bread or even garlic bread wasn't included. The portion size was appalling. One large spoonful onto a very long flat plate and the same amount of salad. Not only did it go cold very fast then, but we were both still hungry. We got two bottles of ginger beer and the whole meal came to just over £18. I have never felt as ripped off. I would have happily paid this if we would have been given a proper quantity of food but it literally took me five or six scoops and I was finished. A real shame as the gallery is stunning and this lets it down considerably.
