I always love coming to Gilpin Lodge.We called for a light lunch about 12.15. We had to wait half an hour for the menu as it was being typed up. The place is lovely and the staff are always lovely. I was fancying prawns but they weren't on the menu except they were an ingredient in the fish pie. I ordered this and my husband had the club sandwich which was excellent he said. Unfortunately I was disappointed to not find one king prawn in my fish pie!! It was just a mixture of white fish and salmon with hardish crushed new potatoes instead of mash. Sauce was quite runny. Very poor and they did adjust the bill by £5. I think the chef must have had an off day as the food has always been excellent here. As we left we walked by the kitchen and heard the word ...prawns mentioned..?? I hope the owners see this review as constructive. They need to know about the negative experiences to ensure they keep tabs on the staff. We will definitely return as we have had previously good experiences . I would still recommend this place. The gardens are beautiful to sit in on a summers day!!
