We stayed at Inglewood Manor last Christmas 2011 from Christmas Eve until 27th December.We were very impressed with the hotel and the staff.We had a lovely meal on Christmas Eve by candlelight and the food was excellent.The Christmas Day lunch was a big disappointment and as we had asked the famly to join us at £80 a head it was not something we would do again.Boxing Day was another excellent meal however, so this year, 2012, we booked to take the family to Inglewoods Boxing Day buffet lunch.On our arrival we were not welcomed by anyone and were not sure where to go so I asked a waitress and we were shown to the lounge.A young man asked if we would like a glass of champagne which we had observed being served in the foyer but at this point we had not realised it was part of the lunch deal.He never came back with our drinks and in the end my husband went to collect them and got two drinks for our granchildren.After a while we were shown through to the dining room and seated at a lovely table overlooking the garden and our starters were brought in.Our party was four adults and two children but the children had not ordered a starter-they would just have a bread roll but there were only three starters and when the waiter asked what the fourth one would have been we hadn't a clue because we had chosen way back in September and so forgotten!!! I said 'surprise me' and I got a very nice prawn cocktail.The main course was a buffet in another room and there was plenty of choice and the staff were very pleasant and the food was good.Our granddaughter who is 6 said she would have pizza off the childrens menu-but I think they forgot her and we had to ask where it was.When it eventually arrived it was just some bread with extremely strong cheese and huge chunks of tomato (not sliced) put on top.Needles to say she didn't eat it but then I wouldn't have either.Dessert was very nice and that was followed by coffee in the lounge.When we left about 2.30pm no member of staff was around to say goodbye and for some reason I felt very let down by the experience.The whole meal cost me almost £150 and I expected better.We went to St Davids Park Hotel in Ewloe on New Years Day for lunch-again the six of us.The bill came to £70 for as much as we could eat and more importantly there was someone to welcome us and to say goodbye when we left.Come on Inglewood you can do better- its the small things that can make or break an occasion.
