We ate in the Chandlery restaurant at The Bosville Hotel, not the Bistro - some of the reviews here are not clear that there is a difference. The two restaurants are seperated by curtains, which are left partly open to allow staff to come and go. This does not particularly add to the atmosphere and the Chandlery does lack ambience.
2 courses for £36 or 3 for £44. Amuse bouche and palate cleansers are also served. My main course of langoustines was certainly fresh but the melted butter lacked flavour and the tiny leaf salad was pointless. Either serve an accompaniment or don't bother -a tiny dish of leaves isn't worth anyone's effort really. Starters and dessert were fine, not exciting but enjoyable enough.
The waitress was very pleasant and efficient, despite having to cope almost single handed with the restaurant.
Overall, I had expected more from the food and was left a bit disappointed. I think I was expecting a higher level of cooking, given the price.
