I took my Mother who is 93, and my partner to the Cricklade Hotel & Country Club for lunch. It is a lovely building with wonderful views from the restaurant and conservatory. I did however encounter a few things which spoilt what could have been a very pleasant experience. Firstly, it could have been a bit warmer, but on arrival we sat in the conservatory for a good 20 minutes before someone took our order for pre lunch coctails, and it was certainly not busy. My gin and tonic was served without a slice of lemon and in a tumbler glass that had "half a pint" etched on the side.
We ordered our meal and wine, and at the time that we had booked our table, we were invited to go through to the dining room with "Hi Guys, would you like to take your seats now". The meal was okay, but nothing special. It just goes to show how things can make a difference, because one of the main reasons for returning was the maitre de at our previous visit, Klaus, who was everything you would expect from such an establishment. Sadly, it was his day off. Will we be returning? Maybe if Klaus is on duty.
