We were invited to lunch by friends of ours, in the main crystal restaurant we both decided to only have two courses, we both had the vegetarian option of roasted veg and a risotto, plus a glass of wine the veg arrived in a hot dish, however this consisted of two small pieces of roast and two small boiled potatoes, some sliced cabbage boiled carrots and a few green beans.
Whilst this was quite tasty and fairly hot, it was not what I expected as 'roasted vegetables' the risotto was very tasty, but only warm on the plate, by the time the wine arrived, we had nearly finished the main course.
The dessert my wife picked was the fruit salad with a mango sorbet, which she said was the highlight of the meal, a good portion and very tasty, I on the other hand picked the cheese, this was decidedly un-impressive a piece of cheddar, red leicester [ I think] and a round piece of what I can only describe as tasteless resembling something processed, to cap it all this dish commanded a £3.50 premium!
The coffee [espresso] and wine were both good.
No we were not impressed
