Having checked into the hotel after 8 pm we decided to have dinner in the Olio restaurant . The menu looked interesting and we opted for set dinner 2 courses for £26 We ordered around 8.45 and there were only about 6 other diners in the restaurant. It was almost 9.30 however before we got our starters. I had goat's cheese and leek twice cooked souffle which had obviously gone wrong somewhere and was as flat as a pancake and tiny - you could have eaten it in one mouthful. My daughter ordered confit of duck leg with crispy duck crackling , what arrived however was shredded duck (the type you get in Chinese restaurants with pancakes ) and no duck crackling in sight. It was bland and tasteless .For mains I had ordered duck breast and my daughter lamb. The waiter arrived with a duck and a chicken dish ,when we pointed out his mistake he took away the chicken in the meantime I tasted my duck and figured that it might indeed be lamb- so tastless it was hard to tell what it was . After about 5 mins he returned and said that indeed my duck was lamb and that I would have to wait to get the duck. We had already waited so long I said that I'd eat the chicken . It was a plain piece of grilled chicken breast edible , the dauphinoise potatoes that came with it were ok. My daughter's lamb was on a bed of mash which had obviously been microwaved . With this we had a glass of wine each at £7.95!!! ( I think). We did not order desserts after the fiasco of the first two courses. When we got the bill they did give us 20% discount because of the mistake on the order but it was a poor evening all round . We had planned to buy breakfast in the morning but gave it a miss as result.
