If you are looking for a retro 1970s era experience of a bad restaurant, this is the place for you.
We booked lunch for ourselves and my wife’s mother who uses a wheelchair. In fact we booked twice as we had to change the day. On both occasions we made it clear that we’d need wheelchair access and were assured that this would be no problem. I believe this has been a legal requirement since 2004.
When we arrived it was difficult to enter the hotel because of a tall ridge across the doorway. Once inside, it turned out to be impossible to get to the dining room. We were offered another table in another room with access down some not very secure looking ramps and through a conference room. Clearly, had the hotel been using this room, access would not have been possible. In the end we eat outside.
On to the food. My wife’s salad nicoise was unbelievable (see picture). No tuna, no anchovies (although advertised), fried rather new potatoes, frozen beans although fresh ones are readily available at this time of year. And all swimming in oil.
My curry was described as Thai Green Curry. Hmmm. Older readers: think back to Vesta Chicken curry. Not good although to be fair it was freshly cooked.
To be fair to the hotel, the desserts were good and the waitress tried her best to help. I understand that it’s difficult today for the hospitality sector and that we were the only customers. But providing poor food and access isn’t going to help. less
