My partner booked me a surprise Valentine night away at the adjoining hotel. He was contacted the week before to ask if he would like to book a table to avoid disappointment on the night. He was told about the special valentine menu, but that it was optional as we could still order off the a la carte menu if we would prefer. Our table was booked for 8.30, but when we enquiried, it turned out to be 9.00. Although we wouldn't normally eat so late, the atmosphere of the restaurant looked appealing and we had a chance to look at the special menu which looked delicious!
We were shown to a lovely romantic table full of valentine confetti and given our menus. We said that we would like to order the special set menu, to be told that this should have been booked in advance and that there wasn't enough food left!! What?? I wish we had left at that point, the waitresses complete lack of sincerity should have rung alarm bells. The meals that we did then order were nothing more than average, you could have soled shoes with my gammon, and a large chunk of my partners pork went in a napkin for our dog! Don't get me started about nearly £3 for seasonal vegetables aka green beans! We left without bothering with a dessert, and unfortunately for us they billed us through the hotel. Massive disappointment, all fur coat and no knickers. First and last visit!
