Four of us went to the Hotel for a birthday lunch today at 1pm. The restaurant was empty so we decided to eat in the Hotel bar. The menu was huge, not a good sign in my experience - you can't do thirty different meals well! We order mellon and parma ham, pigeon, fish cakes and a goats cheese and red onion tart to start. The fish cake and pigeon dishes were adequate the mellon and ham had a strange syrup on it which didn't add anything. The tart had been previously cooked and placed in the microwave to re-heat. It was sent back as it was stodgy, fatty and tasteless. Moving onto the main courses, which were three salmon linguine and a duck breast. The duck was OK. The linguine was cooked well but there was far too much cream in it, with essence of salmon. Not good. To drink with the food we had two sparkling water, one cider and a bottle of Pinot Grigio. Not good value either at £25 per head! Not somewhere I will be going again. A pity as we live in the town.
