Spent the day in Tintern last week and deliberated on where to have lunch. Quite a lot of choice and we think we made the wrong one. The food is trying hard to be something its not: why the "chef" puts slices of orange, sultana, yellow rice, grapes and beetroot cubes in a salad is questionnable - maybe he/she thinks it makes it colourful; to brighten up the main event which in our case was pretty tasteless. We decided that the proprietors are trying to appeal to all tastes but they can't put that on one plate. I tried one of the Specials, cauliflower and broccoli cheese. The cauliflower was rubbery, no taste of cheese and the broccoli was watery and tasteless. Disappointed to find out that there's a 50p surcharge on credit/debit cards - poor show. Our highlight? The water mill which can be seen in operation at intervals and the gorgeous nick-nacks in the shop.
