Why did I write 'pity'. The Bladnoch Inn is a cosy place to dine and close to home which is good.
This is the first time in quite a while that we have chosen to go to Bladnoch for the Sunday Carvery. On two previous occasions we were disappointed mainly due to the food you help yourself too being only slightly warm. We gave it the benefit of the doubt today but sadly nothing has changed.
Choice of roast beef, pork, ham and chicken to pick from. The meat was nice and tender and tasty.
There was a great selection of vegetables ........ Sprouts, cauliflower with cheese sauce, mashed potatoes, green stick beans, carrots, roast potatoes, plus Yorkshire pudding and gravy. It was ALL LUKEWARM. My thinking is you should go at the start time of the Carvery or around 1 o'clock when there's a possibility that the containers for the vegetables etc have been topped up with hot food. At £9.50 a head the standard should be maintained all the time. (I have sent food to the kitchen before to be reheated in the microwave).
At no point did any of the staff come to ask if everything was ok for us.
The white wine and the bottle of beer were not chilled.
On the plus side the bar had a roaring fire and it was a comfortable place to dine just a pity about the cool food.
Don't think we will be going back there again.
