Paid £59 a head for a Private Butlers Dinner on Sunday and 3 of us ordered venison but hardy ate it. The venison was presented in the form of 2 of the biggest and most unappetising pieces of meat I have ever been served and certainly was not the " Haute Cuisine " promised in the brochure. I would have expected that an Executive Chef would have wanted to ask why such a large " doggy bag " had been left over from a private dinner for only 7 people.
To add insult to injury our guests didn't receive the promised chefs canapés and glass of champagne, which is listed on the Butlers Experience part of the brochure.
We received a 50% reduction on the cost of the suite but that was because the air conditioning wasn't working and the room was unbearably hot.
The Butlers were outstanding and made our wedding day as perfect as they could but quality of food is too important to us to want to eat there again.
