We were on a weekend away and decided to go for a Saturday evening meal. We werent aware of how long the meal took or how much food there was to eat!!
We sat down and waited for quite a while for our drinks to arrive, and then it seemed ages until we were asked which starter we wanted- which then arrived about 2seconds later. It then transpired that everyone in the room is given their starters at the same time, then so on throughout the courses. A most bizarre way of serving - then on the main courses and puddings the staff show a sampe of each dish to all the tables-however this food was cold and looked very unappealing. The meal itself was excellent and well cooked.
After the starter was soup, then a main which was a bit heavy on the potatoes- it was sea bass with daupinoise and then new potatoes in a bowl on the table- yet no veg?
Followed was an enormous portion of dessert- very good pavlova- then the weirdest thing- another dessert! I was soooo full I couldnt possibly manage any more food but obviously everyone else knew about this and had another portion!
Due to this strange way of serving we were in the restaurant for about four hours and it did seem to drag on and on- had we known this we probably wouldnt have gone as we had previously made plans for later in the evening which we didnt do!
The staff were very pleasant but very quick to keep taking away the glasses and hovered around the table which was a bit annoying. My friend had literally just put her fork down and was still eating when her plate was taken!
It was very hot and nearing the end of meal they put the fan on which was a relief.
Dont know if we would go back- probably not- nothing to do with the food itself which was lovely but just far too much food and the whole process just took too long! Good value about £32 per person for a lot of food!!
