Had my first experience of The Fitzwilliam Hotel last night and won't be in a hurry to repeat it.
A group of us had booked a pre- theatre meal. Upon reaching the restaurant the staff very promptly showed us to our table with very friendly welcoming smiles and chat, seated us very quickly and promptly took our drinks order - no complaints about this part of the evening. Can't even complain about the service of the food - it all happened very smoothly - however I can complain about the quality and quantity of the food - its a set menu for pre - theatre and whilst I cannot claim to have any professional cooking skills (I am just an interested home cook) I could have cooked better meals - I ordered salted chilli chicken with ginger and coleslaw for starters - what turned up was an insult - three small frozen chicken (want to call them goujons but can't as they were tiny) nuggets on a spoonful of dry coleslaw (couldn't find the ginger) with a drizzle of common supermarket sweet chilli sauce. For mains I ordered chicken on a bed of champ with bacon, wilted spinach and a cream sauce. The portion size was miniscule - I am not a massive eater but even I found this portion size to be inadequate - it might have just about filled my 5 yr old grandson. It was cooked well enough, but nothing about it that left me longing for more.
The hotel experience was fine - the food would put me of returning again.
