Visiting friends, they invited us to a meal at this hotel as it had a good reputation, there was 10 of us in total and arrived at 7.30 to a near empty restaurant. Everything went wrong from the start, from the meals arriving with the wrong combinations on the plate to a medium rare steak being well done and tough. When complained they apologised, took the plate away and brought back a fresh steak which was also over cooked !!. It was their steak special night, the steaks were so thin, like the ones you buy off a car boot butchers, 3 of the steaks were tough, a lamb steak was tough but amazingly the other 6 dishes, lamb shanks, fish etc were lovely ( prob pre packed Wetherspoons type food ). The pepper sauce was so thick you could stand a chip in it.
The friend who took us there was so embarassed ( as his steak was also tough ) he is now informing his friends to keep away from the place. Get yourself a decent butcher, decent steaks, most people dont mind paying an extra couple of quid for quality, staff who concentrate on the job in hand and you may start to build a good reputation for yourselves. Very disapointed and feel very sorry for our friend who recommended this amateur restaurant/cafe to us.
