LET'S START AT THE VERY BEGINNING... It was an organised party, with a pre chosen food order. It was an arrive at 7pm for dinner being served at 7.30pm. We didn't start our first course until 8.30pm. The mushroom starter was great but the soup was terrible. It looked like thick processed baby food. It was also very very salty.
ON TO THE MAIN COURSE... roast pork, was hard and not nice. I had the beef and got the scrag ends with all the nasty bits. The mash was like watery lumpy potato no flavour to it all. Most definitely not the 'creamy mash' advertised! The roast potatoes barely had any colour to them. The vegetable side dishes did not look inviting, all the vegetables were dumped into the bowl they all tasted the same and looked similar.
And finally ... Sticky toffee pudding my favourite - usually, but not here- it looked like 2 slices of malt loaf on the plate, it had hard, crusty edges and was dry. You then had a choice of cream or custard to put on. We were unable to pour the custard from the gravy boat as it was thick and lumpy. The Eton mess had approximately a quarter of a strawberry in it and the apple and blackberry crumble was of equal, poor quality.
In summary, the presentation of the food was dreadful, the taste was flavourless, the service was slow but the staff were polite especially the young lads. Basically you had a chance to promote your food to 50 people with the possibility of increasing your business. We have been to a Best Western before in Worksop and it was beautiful. However we, most definitely will not come back. less
