It has been a few years since we visited this venue and we were excited to return on a recent trip to favourite places with our daughter in tow for the first time.
The claim of the venue is this, 'In a Catering World full of ready to cook meals, synthetic desserts and water pumped cooked meats, where Artisan skills are scarce and not encouraged and out of season produce is tastelessly commonplace.... at The Schoolhouse we care about our food.'
The descriptions of the 'homemade' meals sounded appealing, so we chose the chilli and chips and chicken and leek pie from the specials menu.
I'm sure the mains were homemade but the accompaniments left alot to be desired. The 'crispy chips' were definitely crispy straight from a freezer, not homemade as you would expect from a venue claiming to care about food. The vegetables with the pie were very over cooked and the gravy was watery and lumpy.
The food here is expensive and the portion sizes leave alot to be desired.
Looking around at others meals I'm glad we didn't opt for our first choice of burger as this too looked of the frozen variety.
What was once a favourite stop off in this beautiful area was a turn off this time and it's doubtful we will return.
