We were looking forward to lunch at Age and Sons as it has one of the best reputations in Thanet, but the experience was mixed. We had the set 2 course lunch and the quality of the food was good. The starter of leaves and mozzarella was good with one exception which I will mention at the end. My wife and 2 children has the mushroom risotto which I also tried and thought tasted great with good flavours. One word of warning both the girls didn't like it so much as they are used to a cheaper but more creamy sauce. I had the curried fish which was well cooked and really nice. I went for main and starter and so had a creme brulee which I though was not quite set and had quite a runny consistency, but still tasted great. My main concern with the meal, and my wife did not tell me the full story till we had left as she knew I would have made more of a fuss, was the large blue bottle she found in her salad leaves. She politely stood up, pointed it out to the waitress and was given a replacement dish with a polite apology. My gripe is that was it was still added to the bill, which I would not have paid had I known. Every business makes mistakes and it is how they are dealt with that separates the really good ones from the average ones. Others may disagree but a polite apology is insufficient to deal with a large blue bottle in a salad that should have been spotted before service, so I'm afraid we will probably not be back, such a shame.
