I never review before but this meal was so bad that I felt compelled to warn others.
Saturday night at 8pm 2 tables being used, everyone else obviously knew what I was about to find out.
In brief ordered the Pan fried mackerel for starters, next thing I knew I look over and the waitress walks in with a Tesco's carrier bag, she went round the back of the bar and emptied the contents, guess what was in there?? Vaccum packed mackerel fillets!!
When she came round I asked her if the mackerel in the bag was for me, she said their wasn't any mackerel, just a phone charger, after an awkward discussion of to-ing and fro-ing, where I explained I physically seen the mackerel, she called over the manager/owner.
Unlike the waitress, the manager said that in fact that was my starter!! I proceeded to explain that I came here for fresh fish not Tesco's, the manager/owner said that it was fresh haha mmm the signs don't look good at this point. I said id like to leave the starter altogether.
I asked the manager why she didn't come and say they had no mackerel, too which I got a pale looking face, I also asked why the waitress lied about what id seen?, the waitress pipes up with 'I told you it had mackerel in the bag, I explained that too you!!' I place my face in my hands and said its best we leave it their.
I'm not keen on being lied to and made to feel a fool, from then on the rest of the meal was very uncomfortable to say the least.
My fiancé had Queen scallop's starter which their was plenty 8 but they were tiny, almost prawn sized, oh yes costing £10.95, I have my suspicion that these were also cheap pre-packed however I never seen them opening the packet for these.
The main meals were fish platter and risotto, there's no point picking the bone out of these meal, that's a fitting turn of phrase as that's what I found myself doing with this platter.
At the end of the meal, I was charged full price £70 bottle of prosecco and glass of sauvignon blanc. I was never offered an apology, so didn't expect any financial benefit. Considering there was only two sets of diners, someone had to pay for the shopping. I decided to pay without quibbling, too be honest I just wanted out at that point.
On the way out I asked the lady if she was the manager, she said yes, I explained my feelings and that I would being reviewing the meal, she was left and phased and said she understood and for me to have a good evening. Still no apology
Summary The food was poor at best, the service was terrible but I guessing they didn't want to come back to me after this, and bill was extremely over priced.
I'm warning my friends and I hope you heed my warning, avoid at all cost!
