The Borrowdale hotel Sunday lunch is the stuff of legend and has been for many years.On this occasion the food was excellent as it always is top marks to the Kitchen crew.Despite the best efforts of the Manager Stephen and Cath the restaurant manager who worked like Trojans throughout the duration of Lunch the service failed to match the food.This is untypical of this establishment and the pressure resulted in a two tier level of treatment for arriving diners,regulars instantly recognised and greeted others left floating and somewhat confused.Perhaps we just hit iton a bad day will reserve judgement until after my next visit
