Although luckily not the organiser was invited to a family lunch for 15 people in the room at the back of the main restaurant. The hotel insisted on a deposit before we were able to see the menu and then when the menu was provided it was so restrictive we tried to cancel but they wouldnt provide back the deposit. So in the end crammed into a room at the back of the hotel that seems quite some way from the hotel carpark (which is an adventure in itself trying to find) our starters consisted of bread rolls, with butter. we asked for more butter and more rolls and was bemused to find a plate of sliced white breach being presented to us. For the main course the children were served beef burger (not mini burgers as stated on the set menu, chicken goujons and sausages and chips. I can only assume it was some kind of sausage medley each each of the three sausages that came out was a different size and shape to its neighbour. The majority of the room had fish and chips (not much else to choose from) which was 2 reasonable sized white fish fillets (i hesitate to describe it as cod, i would guess it was much cheaper pollock) with what i would describe as fried jacket potato wedges (skin on), these were ok but not the chips that one would expect to be served with fish. I would also add that there was a spoonful of mushy peas on the side, but I wouldnt describe these as a portion. Dessert was cheese and biscuits or profilteroles. neither of which were memorable and we had to ask for knives to accompany the cheese. Topped off by an extremely hot room that just felt too small for the number of people it was accomodating overall we were very happy to be able to get up and leave.
