We were taken to The Blakeney Hotel restaurant by friends for dinner last weekend and I am really disappointed to be writing a negative review.
Our friends are regulars here and they too were saddened by the service from the unprofessional staff who served us. Being asked if we would pour our own wine, asked to pass plates over rather than them taking them from behind us is just two of the points I will mention.
Two of us ordered the Mussels as a main dish rather than starter and they were soooo awful Most of the shells were empty ! There was very little sauce with the Mussels and one of the staff must have seen me noticing this and he brought us a small jug with more sauce along with some chips as he said he realised our portions were small! This particular waiter seemed to be on the ball which is more than can be said for the rest of them. We had actually been given starter portions and they should have told us that they didn't have enough for 2 portions! In fairness to them, two of us had the lamb which they really enjoyed.
Overall a very disappointing meal which is so sad when this hotel is such a lovely place to visit. We would be loathe to revisit but would head for The White Horse where we enjoyed a fabulous meal the next evening.
