I stayed at the hotel for the week whilst working in the area. I picked this hotel because if the convenient food facilities, and on my first night I headed to the bar for my tea.
I ordered the Pea and Mint Soup for my starter which came in the biggest bowl you could imagine, yet consisted of the smallest 'puddle' of fairly tasteless soup nestled in the middle, it was actually quite amusing (I took a picture and will try and upload it!)
For main I had the Piri Piri Chicken with Potato Wedges. The chicken was ok, not Piri Piri by any stretch but it was averagely flavoured chicken, and the wedges were very nice.
Here lies the problem, and my reason for 2 stars. This food was a fine dining attempt served in a traditional bar. I wanted bar style food, and so I ordered from the bar menu. However what I received was an effort at 'fine dining' that failed to live up to that either.
Placing a chicken breast sliced at 45 degrees in both directions placed onto a bed of mixed twigs is neither, it's just confused...
What is wrong with good home style cooking with a bistro menu, it's simple and would fit the bill. Interestingly I heard 3 separate groups of other people with similar conversations amongst them that evening... Odd that...
