We visited here for lunch on a stunningly beautiful warm day. The cakes and scones looked delicious, but are openly displayed on the serving counter which can't be very hygienic.
We ordered soup, described as garden vegetable but which turned out to be very strongly tomato based and not to my taste. Not really garden vegetable, at all. I then ordered a brown bread tuna and sweet corn sandwich (my husband ate my soup as well) - very dry, quarter stottie filled with tuna and sweet corn with not enough mayonnaise. It was accompanied by a very small portion of salad and one of coleslaw. The salad was almost entirely composed of red onion. It cost £5.95. I found it inedible.
We were really disappointed with the quality and the range of food that was available. Having been to Richard Sim's places before, we couldn't quite believe it.
I know that it must be hard to manage food turnover in such a remote place, but there must be ways round that, surely. Ditching the inedible stotties would be a start.
On the plus side, the staff were lovely. The ice cream was delicious although the freezer is working intermittently and so it was amazingly hard. Luckily the sun was warm and we were able to sit outside in the sun until it melted!
