I am once again massively disappointed with our dinner at the Hardwick - the last time I was there about 8 months ago I had a poor meal and I swore I would not go back, however we did go as friends from South Wales wanted to meet and we thought this would be the place.
Well here are again - disappointed and this time will absolutely not be going back
You can't fault the ambience - its a nice location and nicely refurbished inside and the staff were helpful, but sadly its tops there.
2 of us ordered the cauliflower soup which is a firm favourite of mine, it was cold and had to go back to be reheated - once we got it back it was thick and lumpy and not very pleasant. Then myself and my husband ordered the Fish, well for me it was inedible - it was dry and overcooked, sitting on a bed of large pearls of some kind of pasta with no sauce handsome poorly cooked veg. I could not finish mine. The saving grace for me was the Ice Cream which was lovely but my husbands cheese was again substandard.
We had one bottle of wine and a round of drinks before dinner and the bill was more than the 1 Michelin star we went to recently
Poor poor poor - sorry guys but I have to say it how it is as its not the first time I have left the Hardwick feeling let down
