Its approx 2years since we last had a bar meal in this hotel and that time it was in winter, I remember because the soup was absolutely gorgeus and really welcome on a cold day.
Our visit last week was on a beautiful sunny day and as we were starving the two of us opted for the carvery lunch, we chose turkey and chicken supreme and all the veg and trimmings etc.
I knew straight away when the covers were lifted that it wasnt going to be nice but said what the hell we' re here and hungry lets get on with it. I opted for parsley sauce with my chicken and couldnt believe it was synthetic, no fresh parsley in it. How hard is it to make a basic white sauce and fling in some fresh chopped parsley!
The bar is dark, the chairs are far too soft and uncomfortable trying to eat a meal.
We didnt bother getting coffee or a drink from the bar, we called into Ferrycarrig Hotel on way home later and had coffee and dessert there.
