I had my wedding reception here at The Cliffs just a small intmate wedding with family and friends. Booked an afternoon wedding lunch for a few people just until the reception, it was supposed to be deep fried haddock chips and peas, it was dried up breaded fish of unknown origin dried chips and peas all served seperately. We then had to wait for the tarter sauce to be served tried serving ourselves this and got told off, then had to wait for the condiments, so by this time the chips were cold fish barely eatable peas could have been used as pellets. We couldn't get anyone to serve drinks as this had not been ordered when booking it, we had to go into another room the cafe bar to get drinks until the bar opened for our reception. The evening went well, the buffet excellent, only that the bubbly that was paid for never arrived when we asked about this we were told it had been forgotten and along came the sparkling rose wine not bubbly. The catering manager insulted us when he said that my wedding cake would not cut into 40 which is how many guest were there. He did come back and stated that there was some left over.The morning after I asked for a full english with the bacon to be well done as the morning previous it was barely cooked, it came burnt black uneadible. I reported all this to the manageress who appologised profusely and said the chef would be mortified the excuses were given and were well rehearsed as though this wasn't the first time this had happened then said she would give us a bottle of bubbly as recompense but also told us she had altered the bubbly to rose wine as this was dearer.(don't think so. Rose £17 per bottle bubbly £27).We were told they didn't usually cater for small weddings, well if you can't deal with 40 god help a possible 140 guest.Then we went into dinner I could not believe my eyes, roast beef dinner, 2 small slices of processed roast beef soggy roast potatoes and soggy yorkshire pudding eugh! when I called for the waiter for my sweet he proceeded to tell me that I should allow my main course to digest before having a sweet. Instead of staying another night which is what I had paid for we left I could not have stayed another night.I can honestly say no they didn't ruin my wedding I married a lovely man, but the food left a lot to be desired.
