We chose the Wharfedale from a number of possibilities with a view to taking the family the following weekend. What a mistake! We had decent starters and for main I had pork loin. This consisted of two pieces of meat one on top of the other with indifferent looking boiled potato accompaniment and side dish of vegetables. The meat was very difficult to cut and impossible to chew. I asked the waitress (who was courteous) to take it back and she offered me an alternative which I declined as the one I chose(my partner's chicken dish) would apparently take 35 minutes to prepare. Meanwhile my partner had to eat alone. When I went to settle the bill I was told very firmly that I would have to pay for the returned dish as it had been ordered and other people had not complained. When I said that I had intended to take a family group the following week I was told not to take them if I was not prepared to pay. When I asked what would have happened ifI had taken an alternative dish i was told that I would have had to pay for BOTH dishes.
I have never before experienced such a discourteous reaction and friends I have told this to were astonished.
