We had booked to go for Sunday Lunch for a special family event, after having our wedding there 5 years ago. We'd been wanting to go for years but hadn't got round to it. My Dad has been quite poorly recently, so it was nice that he could come out with us. When we arrived the receptionist was friendly and the person who showed us to our table was good too, although seemed very rushed. Before the mains was being served the plates were brought by someone who turned out to be quite rude throughout the whole time we were there. He wasn't in he same uniform as the others so was either new, or unfortunately might have been in charge. He didn't smile once and said the bare minimum. He cleared our starter plates away without speaking, just rushed over and leaned in. He didn't ask if everything had been ok. When he brought the plates for the main, again he rushed over and without a hello or excuse me, asked who was having the vegetarian main and then went on to give everyone else a plate but them and left without another word. He later pushed passed my Mum as she was trying to sit down and he looked cross. We also saw him in the corridor and he did then same. The person who cleared the main dishes was warm and friendly, just what you would expect at such a place and at £17 a head. The girl sorting the deserts was again rushed and unfriendly but if the other person was in charge, I don't blame her as this was the lead she was given. It left us feeling very uncomfortable throughout the whole meal. I didn't enjoy the food as my stomach was churning with the atmosphere they staff were creating. I understand that somewhere like Statham Lodge is very busy at Sunday lunch time but surely they have to realise that their diners have come there to relax. We won't be going back for Sunday Lunch again.
