Is ‘terrible’ a good word for the kind of experience we had there? No!’ Terrible’ is an understatement. What it was supposed to be a special occasion turned out to be a disaster. The food was awful, looked like it had been in the freezer for days and just defrosted with a few hours earlier. Whoever decided to put together that menu had not only no passion for food, no commitment to the ethos of the hotel or care for its customers but no culinary skills at all. In a world that is more and more interested in and appreciative of freshly made honest food, Simon Radley and his team deliver mediocre food in a venue that raises your expectation far beyond they can ever deliver. Is this the Simon Radley standard? It must be as his name is all over the place. I am not a food writer and I enjoy food, any food, as long as I see that little bit of effort put into it. I am neither a chef nor an amateur cook but I am sure that I can make better scones than the ones we had, or I can think of a better offer for the Afternoon Tea that the one put in front of us. The presentation on the website is totally misleading, and I wouldn’t go back there again in my entire life. Not that it matters to anybody @the Oddfellows as nobody bothers to reply to any of the terrible or poor or average reviews here – attitude that shows in their food and service too.
