My wife and I popped in here for a spot of lunch after a walk along Gorlestons wonderful beach.
We sat outside on the amazing deck overlooking the beach and ordered sandwiches and a pot of tea (after being informed that the jacket potatoes were not available - no reason offered).
The deck is really great as a seating area, I am not sure how the ambience is on the inside of the hotel. The staff were fine but a smile wouldn't go amiss to create a warmer feeling from a customer perspective - maybe I expect too much?
The sandwiches were fine but the side order of "skinny chips" were a) not skinny and b) not cooked. We left almost all of them and the waitress did not remark when we told he we didn't eat them because they weren't nice. It is trendy to enhance the humble spud by cooking it twice or thrice and the chef should give it go - the end result would be better and you can charge more for the product.
The hotel enjoys an amazing location and has the makings of being somewhere people would travel to for an experience but the execution of the food needs to be better based on our visit. Shame.
