Went for a late lunch recently, was a quiet thursday afternoon, so me and my friend decided on a long and leasurely lunch at Osborne's, my friend had been before and had a great meal. Chose here because it serves food all day, and it was late afternoon. We were greated by very friendly staff at the bar, ordered our food over a drink, then went thru to the dining room to eat. Was served again by a very friendly and polite waiter, but when the food arrived, it was a bit dissapointing. My friend had the garlic mushroom on brioche starter, not much garlic or sauce, but on a very soggy bed of brioche, my seafood starter was just ok, nothing special. We did spend a bit of time on the starters, as we had not seen each other for ages, so were gossiping and catching up on the news, however, when mains arrived, you coul tell tht the had been standing for a long time under a lamp. My salmon was really dry and crusty around the edges, and not that hot, my friends fish and chips looked very over done too. They should have not startrd to cook our mains until we were nearly finished our starters, it was quiet in the restaurant, so they could have cooked the food better. Ordered desserts, as we were having the 3 course deal. My friend enjoyed her chocolate pot, I had bread and butter pudding, that had a few raisins, but mostly tasted like scrambled egg. Great service, nice wine, shame about the food.
