Oh dear, oh dear. What a disappointment.
We stopped-off here with fiends for a bite of lunch and to check-out the hotel for a possible stay in the future.
The hotel is a rambling old affair with many old buildings joined together over the years. Money has been spent, but it needs a whole lot more. The general appearance is a bit shabby.
Now the service. Ours was not a demanding table: two hot sausage baps, one cheese & pickle sandwich, one chicken and apricot sandwich, one bowl of chips. Did the guy from the bar write that down? No. Did he try and be clever? Yes. Did he fail? Yes. One C&P sandwich arrived (made with stale bread), followed by the C&A (with the same bread and a limp soggy garnish). Two BACON rolls arrived (sent back). No chips. Fifteen minutes after the first food arrived, the order was complete. The sausage rolls were a bit sad too - not even proper butcher's sausages, just cheap ones.
So will we go back for food? No.
Would we dare trust them with our wedding day (this is big business for this hotel)? No.
What a shame.
