Attended the Green Lawns Hotel last night for our staff christmas party. Was curious as it has recently changed hands. Well, where shall I start! The company was excellent which was just as well, there was a good selection of courses on the menu, I chose to start with a chicken liver pate followed by sirloin steak with peppered sauce and finishing off with fresh fruit salad.
The pate was very nice and a generous portion but for some reason they thought a piece of bread the size of a 'dipping soldier' would be enough! On to the next course, I must say the sirloin steak was very nice considering the amount they had to cook but unfortunately it was more of a 'minute' steak than a sirloin steak, the sauce was also quite watery. The fruit salad was awful, they should take the word 'fresh' off the menu! The apples were soft and spongy and the pear was so ripe in disintegrated in your mouth and left nothing but the peel behind.
Very disappointed. The staff were careless and tended to throw things in front of you rather than place them. Will definately think twice in going back there.
