I don't usually like to leave bad reviews, I'd rather say nothing if it's not positive but I'm annoyed that myself and my family paid £24.95 each for the Christmas Party Meal when it was pretty much terrible. The food was too hot (an obvious sign that it had just come out of the microwave), soup had a nice taste but it was like water with bits in. The garlic mushrooms were rock hard, my Mum almost broke a tooth - she also had one where there wasn't actually a mushroom inside the batter. The main was worse, the veg was frozen and the new potatoes were tinned. There wasn't enough food provided and the gravy was as thin as water, not much taste at all. We asked for extra veg and potatoes which we were given but then heard a comment between the staff "We're short on veg and potatoes for the next family now". The Christmas Pudding was as a big as a satsuma and clearly pre-packed. The apple cobbler looked like a meat pie and was pretty tasteless, microwaved to perfection! There was also a guy with long hair who clearly had a personal hygiene problem, he served me some coffee and I almost gagged at the smell of his armpit in my face! The only good thing about our trip was the fact that we were served quickly and on time, thankfully we didn't stay overnight! Very disappointed especially as we paid £24.95 each. I have better meals at 2 for 1 places such as Wetherspoons.
