We had high expectations of eating here having booked three months in advance. We were sat indoors, as requested, next to a family who had feral children (not Stocks fault) The children were allowed to scream & jump around with impunity.The worst was was watching the two kids strip off naked and jump into the pool between their main and pudding.
If Stocks is a dinner place for familiies I would prefer to know, it struck me as BUTLINs for the rich.
We spent £70 on a bistro menu and still had to pour our own wine all evening. My husband felt uncomfortable when he was using an urinal only to be comfronted by another father with a primary age daughter using the toilet,this was after 20.00 at night.
We left feeling that a middle aged couple without children were not Stocks desired customers as I had been led to believe. This was an expensive evening, food was good but marred by average service. To make us feel futher out of place there was a hen do and we wondered why we bothered to dress for dinner.
