All potatoes contain substances known as glycoalkaloids. The most common in potatoes are solanine and chaconine. Solanine is the toxic substance found in deadly nightshade which indicates the potential seriousness of eating uncooked potatoes which are, in any case, hard to digest and unpleasantly flavoured.
I went here for a Valentines Day meal with my Wife.
I had to send my meal back as the boiled potatoes were not cooked. A second plate arrived and the same again, half cooked potatoes. They offered a third plate, but by then they had ruined my appitite, and and the romantic evening, and I refused to eat anything further.
When I went to pay, I was met with hostility by the barman who was quite nasty towards me.
I have never been treated so badly eating anywhere else, and what ever happened to "The customer is ALWAYS right". I have been in and around catering for many years and cannot recall anywhere that had such a bad attitude, No genuine apology of any kind given or any reduction offered. Only the cook who rattled on about "how fluffy her potatoes were".!!!
If you want a lovely meal with a nice atmosphere "GO SOMEWHERE ELSE"
