My wife and I stayed for one night at the adjoining Georgian House Hotel (see separate review) for a visit to the theatre.
Initially, I had booked for a late lunch, intending then to have just a light snack later before the theatre. The helpful lady on the hotel desk pointed out that (a) we would be the only people lunching! and (b) they could do a pre-theatre meal for us at 6pm or even 5:30pm. We opted for 5:30.
When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told where to sit - on the basis that it was fully booked and would fill up quickly from 6pm (which it certainly did not).
We both ordered soup for our starter - which took about 20 minutes to arrive. It may have been freshly made - and to give it some credit, it did taste good. However, by the time it arrived at the table it had a good skin on it, which made me think it had been kept hot for a while. It was served with a small piece of bread - but no butter was offered.
My wife's main course (after another long wait) was an Italian salad of mozzarella, tomato and green salad - but contained a very high proportion of red onion, which swamped the delicate flavour of the cheese.
My main was a smoked salmon and prawn salad. The salmon tasted OK, but was chopped quite small and mixed with green leaves, so it was hard to tell how much there was. The prawn and marie rose sauce tasted slightly odd, so I left most of it. Ditto the pile of coleslaw in the other corner of the plate, which was very poor (worse than supermarket "basic").
All in all - not a great meal and not cheap.
