I've been to Dexters many times and yet each time there is something that disappoints. Dexters is the sort of place you want to love. It aspires to be a quality bistro, the sort of place you visit regularly because it's too nice not to. But the quality just isn't consistent. For example, on this visit, the service was friendly but the fish and chips was very disappointing indeed. And when you're really in the mood for fish and chips, and the batter is soggy and unappetising, then there's nothing quite like that disappointment. I mean, how hard can it be?
On previous visits it's been the staff who have let the side down. Either inattentive, disinterested or incompetent. Poorly trained staff are a sure fire way to ruin even the nicest dinner.
If only they could get it right, and be as consistent as their sister restaurant, the White Swan at Woodnewton, which, by the way, never disappoints.
