Went to Loch Fyne in Knowle last night for a meal out with friends. They'd been there before and had been pretty impressed, so we went with high expectations. Also, having had a chance to glimpse the online menu before we arrived and the fairly substantial price tags, only added to our high expectations.
Needless to say we were disappointed.
I ordered the mussels to start which were actually pretty nice with a decent sized portion. However, my partner and one of my pals ordered the deliciously billed garlic prawns. He could only describe them as meagre in portion and very greasy. Not good for £6!
For main, my other half ordered the fish of the day - pollock with 2 sides. Considering he asked for the fish to be pan-fried, the skin was soggy and the accompanying chilli and coriander butter sauce was extremely tasteless. His chips were the best bit! My smocked haddock with colcanan was equally soggy and grey in colour. the colcanan was mushy and bland. The beans that came with both our dishes were over cooked and very hard.
The service was generally very efficient but it just didn't make up for the less than mediocre food whose price tag and menu descriptions suggested quite the opposite.
Needless to say, i don't think we're be going back to Loch Fyne in a hurry!
