“Gastric Ulcer”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2009

This Hotel shares a good location in a busy market town. As we have used Logis De France many times before, we knew what to expect and the room was without surprises. The hotel staff were polite and friendly and registration was painless.

Sadly the same cannot be said for the quality of food served in the restaurant. As it was our first night, we elected to 'eat in' and I have to say we later wished we had not.

The restaurant boasted a 'Gastronomic Menu'. Candidly the closest this chef had ever come to Gastronomy was the cook book in the shop around the corner. The starters were disapointing, but he worked his way up to his best effort for the main course.

The restaurant was not full, which for a Saturday, should have been a good clue.

I had ordered the Turbot, and for the money we were expected to pay, I was looking forward to something a bit special. In defense of their culinary expertise the sauce was excellent, it was just that I had difficulty finding much fish.

The wife had ordered Faux Fillet. Now we all know that it is not a real fillet and that you take what you get, but it should at least be something approximating a piece of steak. To add insult to injury, having ordered the meat 'well done' it came 'Blood red'. I became a touch concerned as I watched my wife chew and chew and chew on the same piece of meat. So I tried a bit and boy this meat re-defined tough.

We did send it back, but the replacement was clearly cut from the same animal and was just as tough. The wife made a good attempt but in the end had to admit defeat.

The cheeseboard passed muster, but the sweets clearly had been prepared a long time before and refrigerated and as a result were cold and chewy.

I felt sorry for the locals who were eating there. Clearly this was the only half way decent restaurant around so they were just putting up with it. When I sent the steak back, they could hardly contain themselves, almost as if they had been waiting for somebody to have the courage to say what they were so clearly thinking.

So by all means, stay in the hotel but you would be best advised to make arrangements to eat elsewhere.

Oh and incidently, we did stay in a '3' fireplace hotel the following night and it was everything it should be!
