We came down to Deal and went for brunch at The Black Douglas - we had to go to a table downstairs as the main seating area was full ( but only approx 6 tables) into a cellar looking room - this area was full of cobwebs ! We ordered our drinks at 10:50, the people on the next table were complaining about the fact they had ordered over 45 mins but still no food. 25 mins later our drinks arrived - the one lady who was serving did apologise for the wait. The tea was served in chipped cups. We ordered Eggs Benedict and two eggs on toast and waited, and waited, and waited .... after 58 minutes of waiting we decided to just pay for our drinks and leave. When we told them we were leaving as we had been waiting just under an hour for Food the lady just said "oh, sorry, we are quite busy" - on the way out we passed another table who were also chuntering about the length of time they had been waiting for their food. We for one won't be returning here as life is too short to spend waiting in The Black Douglas !!
