This was our 3rd visit as we have always really enjoyed the food. Sadly this time I ordered the fish only to be told it was not available, so asked for the duck which also was not available. I appreciate the need for a small menu as it enables the chef to concentrate all efforts on the meals, but when 2 items are unavailable it restricts the choice somewhat. It would have been better had we been told at the start that these meals were not on rather than having to rethink the choices. I finally chose 2 starters which were nice enough but not really what I wanted. the menu in the room had a meal that was not even on the menu in the restaurant, which unluckily was my husbands first choice. It is a shame because previous visits have been amazing. Thankfully the breakfast next day was back to the usual high standard.
