Had lunch today in the Grand Hotel. Two course meal with tea or coffee. Very impressed with consistant high quality of menu, food, and presentation by the staff. I had a baked hake with creamed spinnach, roasted red pebber and red pepper sauce on a bed of mashed potatoe. It was perfectly cooked and a lovely combination of flavours, with carrots, broccoli and parsnip on the side dish.
The other choices were crispy duck salad with beetroot, orange and goosebery compote, that looked very appetising or Supreme of Chicken on a spicey butter bean and tomato ragu. Dessert was profiteroles & choclate sauce or Pear and almond frangipane tart with caramel sauce.
This was a regular Monday lunchtime Rotary Club meeting that I have had the pleasure of being a guest speaker on many occassions. Always a very good lunch of high quality service and presentation. All that might be missing would be the gold plates and silver spoons! Go there.
