We live locally, 3 miles away from PC, and were guests at a wedding 4 weeks ago. Some local friends(members of PC) had advised that standards and quality have nosedived, but we went open eyed.
To park, as non-members, we were a long way from the reception room, but walked past dozens of vacant parking spaces!
The waiting/bar staff had a minimal command of our language/etiquette, and seemed to wait for advice on every move.
The Canapes looked and tasted nice if you could get one, but they were whisked through the reception as if they were going to go off - at least the waiting staff enjoyed them as they chomped on them on the way back to the kitchen, past paying guests!!!
The wedding breakfast was OK, but the Strawberry Mousse was watery.
The evening reception - why would PC employ outside caterers from St Albans to "cook" an awful barbeque (Iceland type burgers and sausages) and expect guests to eat this? no wonder the majority of the food was trayed up and left in the bar. Big, big shame!
Prices in the bar for drinks added to the insult.
Has the Red Lion management taken over this venue as well?
