I have had a few meals in the restaurant at Weston Hall over the last couple of years and while the food is good, there are always a few niggles which, if dealt with, would enhance the experience.
Once again we were served hot meals on cold plates: do these kitchens not have warming drawers? The meals chosen included lamb and beef, yet we had to ask for the sauces which should have accompanied them automatically, even though the lamb was listed as, 'lamb with mint sauce'.
It appears to be a silver service restaurant, yet our server forgot more than once who was having what! We all thought the dessert portions were small and the lemon crunch did not crunch!
However, there were two things which I disliked. We had to wait ages for our starters and then again between our other courses and it was mid week and they were not busy at all, I counted 10 other diners. One of the servers did apologize for the wait, but offered no explanation.
We were a party of more than four and three tables had been put side by side and the settings were offset so that two of us had table legs to contend with. This was most uncomfortable and this is not the first time I have encountered this. This means that conversation with other members of the party was non-existent, as they were too far away They need a round table for more than four people and there is plenty of room for this and a drop leaf would be more than suitable.
Do not be put off with my report as the food is good and I will no doubt eat here again in the future. less
