I am reticent to review the meal I recently had here, as I was a guest, and don’t want to embarrass my host.
However he was sufficiently embarrassed at the time, so I don’t suppose he will feel any the worse if he reads this.
This was the second time I have had the privilege of dining in this outstanding-in-every-other-way building. The first time was excellent, the second time a disaster. I cannot catalogue all the things wrong – the quality of the food, its presentation, the wine, and most appallingly of all, the service – the one thing that a Military establishment ought to excel at. It was dire. Dire, dire, dire.
My host was so dreadfully embarrassed, and I was for him. He later told me that he thought the catering had been contracted out, and that our experience was not uncommon.
Go anywhere else, until they get their focus right.
