Have visited The Vine Hotel before for lunch. Friends took me today for a birthday treat - how disappointing. We had curry as on our last two visits this has been excellent. Not on this occasion, much smaller portions, curry was served in a small metal frying pan type dish and rice in separate small dish only half full. Food tasted OK but portion was so small and the price had increased enormously £9.95 today and a couple of months ago was £6.95. Also my friend had a loyalty card which gave a discount but when she came to pay was told this was no longer valid. No sign to say cards were not to be used any more so felt somewhat embarrassed that they paid a lot more for smaller portions. If it had not been a birthday treat I would certainly have complained but did not want to make them feel uncomfortable. Needless to say will not be going again, plenty more places in Skegness.
When my friend questioned the waitress, whom she knew, she was told new owners had taken over.
Also do not get a workman to change light bulbs to low energy ones whilst customers are eating lunch, this job should be done when the bar is closed.
