“A Tale of Two Salmons”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Not sure whether to give it a very good review or a very bad one. Here's my dilemma .......
Visited the restaurant on Sunday 3rd November with my husband while staying at a nearby hotel in Grasmere. First impressions were good, clean and bright with a nice friendly atmosphere. I ordered the salmon steak from the "specials" board and my husband had the haddock and chips from the main menu. Both were well presented, well cooked and delicious.
Because of our good experience that night we decided to return the following evening (Monday 4th). The restaurant was quiet and we placed our order. After enjoying the salmon the previous night I decided to order it again. Uh OH ... Bad choice. When it came the presentation fell well short of the previous evening but, hey, it's all about the taste isn't it. I took one bite of the salmon and found it was still raw in the middle and I mean raw. I quietly pointed it out to the waiter who apologised and arranged to bring me another. The replacement soon arrived but to my dismay I pulled it apart with my fork to find that one raw too. I was quite upset by now, not to mention starving and just wanted to leave. My husband took the dish back and we were given a refund. In hindsight I'm assuming it must have been the chef's night off. Will we go back ? Hmmm doubt it.
