I visited this hotel/restaurant on the evening of Sunday 30th December.
When phoning to make the reservation I confirmed that an ala carte menu would be available.
When my 3 guests and I arrived we were told to sit in the lounge and somebody would be with us in a few moments - 15 mins later no sign of any waiting staff !! I went to the bar and asked had I understood correctly or should I still be waiting in the lounge? After some thought she told me to return to my seat and she would send somebody, OK 8 mins later a kid arrived and took our drinks order. 2 campari sodas served in a half pint glass, so much soda that you weren't sure if they had actually remembered to put the Campari in or not, a gin and tonic - no ice or lemon, having plonked them on the table, he returned with 4 beer mats and put them in the middle of the table, and kindly advised us these were our beer mats !!
I asked if we could see some menus, a young waiter arrived, more mud on his shoes than I have on my dog-walking wellies !! He proceeded to give me 3 menus, I pointed out that there was four of us !! It didn,t sink in that we might need another menu. Having looked at the Menu
(far from ala carte! but a set Sunday evening meal) I decided enough was enough, and we paid for the drinks and went to THE BELL at Monks Kirby, Incredible meal was then had by all.
Such a shame that MACDONALD hotels don't realise the scope they have with such a beatiful building and setting,
