we decided to treat ourselves to a meal out during our 2 week holiday in wales, and went to the kitchen garden. on our arrival, someone came out of the kitchen and nearly collided into us (the kitchen door is right next to the entrance with people walking in and out). we asked for a table for 3, and the lady said she needs to check if they had availability. she returned and showed us to our table. the waitress then came with the menu, but straight away said that several things on the menu were not available!! we considered leaving then, as it limited what could be ordered for our son, but unfortunately, decided to stay(and we were there for an early lunch when they shouldn't be running out of dishes!) anyway, we ordered, and one of the dishes was the days special- market fish- sea bass- served with various sides at £15. our food arrived. the sea bass was not even a fillet, but just the tail end, a very small piece of fish. when you are paying £15 for a main dish you do expect a reasonable sized piece of fish. when we complained, we were told that is the normal portion size. we eat out a lot, and I can tell you that for £15 a dish you deserve a much larger bit of fish than what was presented to us! on complaining we were asked- 'well what do you want, we can give you some more fish or reduce the cost of the dish'. so we asked for more fish, but the lady soon returned saying that the chef was preparing the food for a large party that had ordered and was unable to do our fish!! we got the impression they had run out of fish, like several other things on the menu, and they were trying to fob us off with less than half the size of fish we should have had! anyway, we paid £10 for the dish, and left with half full stomachs! on our way out, although we had just vacated a table for 4, 4 new arrivals without a booking were turned away- perhaps they realised they could not get away with serving half dishes and charging full prices for them! my advise, a rip off, poor service. chose another place!!
