As one member of a large group of people visiting the Cedar Court hotel (Best Western) Harrogate on December 14 2013, paying £29 for the "Festive Party Night". I have been asked to write the review for all of us.
The food can only be described as terrible! The starters in our group where, melon which was ok, its melon can't get that really wrong and Tomato soup which again was ok. The overall deception in the group was that the soup was the best part of the meal. What let it down was the way the soup was served, Two chefs, in off white whites, came out to a table on the dance floor and poured the soup into the bowls from large, school canteen like, clear jugs from a huge saucepan of soup on top of what looked like a hospital canteen trolly… so unprofessional. One of our group asked for another bread roll to go with his soup to be told only one per-person. The rolls where like the tiny par-cooked ones from a supermarket!
The main course of our group was mainly Turkey dinner and Pan fried Rib eye steak. The potions where tiny three brussels, three potatoes, two strips of carrot, two strips of parsnip one inch of a pig in blanket and a small slice of what i think was chestnut stuffing. The only thing good to be said was the plate was hot but looked very empty! Very dry Turkey, soggy brussels, over cooked carrots/parsnips, tasteless stuffing and undercooked potatoes. The Rib eye was under cooked, told it was medium, tasteless mainly fatty.
Dessert well the cheese cake was even left by the most sweet toothed person in the group. It looked like it had been left out and not covered before service as the edges where changing colour and side where drooping plus the overall taste was described by the group as very odd. No-one in our group could tell what was served with the Christmas pudding a sauce or custard it said on the menu Brandy Sauce, maybe the DJ drank the Brandy!
Verdict = Overall cheap produce very poor.
Finally the DJ, as he was included in the price, well the music stopped when he was queuing for Larger at the bar which he drank all night, must have been paid in drinks. Peter Kay would have had a field day!
Didn't complain on the night because didn't want to spoil the special night any more than it was by Best Western but we will never go again. Maybe the should remove Best from there name!
