check price before you order!
visited on Friday evening with a family group of six, went through the menu,starters, mains and sweets, drinks, wine and coffee so expected a fairly hefty bill which i foolishly paid without checking,
looking over it the next day i noticed we had been charged £33.00 for a starter of six scallops in garlic butter( to be clear they don't have a starter of six scallops on the menu we just fancied some and asked if we could have just six, seared, on a plate , the waitress suggested garlic butter , fair enough!), That's right THIRTY THREE POUNDS! surely a mistake. Made a quick call to queery the price. no mistake, that's the price! hand dived scallops you see, end of! bye bye!
have just had a quick web search ,
restaurant Gordon Ramsay:- Orkney diver scallops with sea purslane, hazelnut and langoustine butter £15.00/£22.00
Claridges:- Seared Scallop, Pomegranate & Almond Quinoa, Orange Reduction £ 14.00
this is for an intermediate course so probably only three scallops.
so how exactly do mhor fish justify being considerably more expensive than the above establishments? considering we ate at plastic tables sitting on bent plywood school assembly chairs.....................need i go on?
