The Alverbank Hotel often put on '' tribute nights'' my friends and I have been to 2 of these events, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
But the only drawback I must mention is the quality of the food served on the night.
When you buy a ticket it does include food which has to be pre ordered.
On this particular night, we were crammed in like sardines in their ''Function Room'' with so many tables and chairs that they were almost on the stage!
We were a little concerned about fire regulations regarding the amount of people in the room.
The portions of the food served that night were small to say the least!
Chilli ,Sweet and Sour Veg, and Sweet and Sour Pork, all served with watery rice
It was luke warm with not much taste.
The last event we went to we had a similar problem.
In between the 2 events the cheap bottle of rose wine on offer went up by £2.00 per bottle from £10.00 to £12.00 in 2 months!!
I know they have to make a profit but I imagine the budget for the food was probably only £1.00 a head at most and as the event was £12.00 the profit must must have been substantial !
I only hope the chef cooking that nights dinner is not the same chef in their brand new restaurant !
To the manager..............Bring down the price of your drinks and make the tickets cheaper with no food!
Or review the food on offer .....its cheap tastless and luke warm!!!!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Alverbank Country House Hotel is a Grade II listed venue in Alverstoke, Hampshire, boasting spectacular views of the Solent and the Isle of Wight (host of the world famous annual Cowes Week event!). Also nearby are some of the finest nautical attractions in British naval history, including Lord Nelson's iconic HMS Victory, and the brand new Mary Rose museum. Originally commissioned as a house in 1842 by J.W. Croker (one of the leading figures in Victorian-era politics), the venue has, over the years, played host to many well-known political figures including the Duke of Wellington and former Prime Minister, Sir Robert Peel, who used to catch the teatime train down from London on a Friday to ensure he arrived in time for dinner! The Alverbank has also hosted royalty; Queen Victoria's second son Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, resided here whilst attending the Naval College next door at Bay House and, later, Prince Edward, Prince of Wales, found it the perfect environment in which to 'escape' the formalities of Osborne House, just across the Solent. Moving forward to the present day, the venue has many different functions. We serve lunch and dinner 7 days per week, as well as hosting regular live music evenings featuring the very best local acts and tribute artists. We are also a fantastic venue for events - whether it is for a corporate meeting, a birthday party, or the wedding of your dreams, our hard-working and dedicated team will do everything they can to ensure you have a fantastic visit that you will remember for many more years to come! ... more less
