My parents have asked me to place this comment concerning their stay and the restaurant at the Cumberland in particular.
Both parents have stayed and enjoyed food in many restaurants around the UK and Europe. The stay at the Cumberland was generally ok, the rooms were tired but clean and the main staff friendly and helpful but, the restaurant was the problem. The food is possibly the worst they have been given in any hotel they have stayed in before and when mentioning the issue to the resturant manager, she just said, "I'll get the general manager to contact you" That was weeks ago and still no contact. It seems they know the problem and can do nothing about it. The suggestion therefore is do not eat there.
