We live locally to this hotel & often visit for a drink due to it's great location, We have often tried the food but every time have had a problem with it.
The bar menu does sound good but the food is mostly re-heated, often cold, or has serious taste balance issues i.e, hummus made from a whole bulb of garlic, soup like water, korma with over cooked chicken that is as hot as a vindaloo, under cooked chicken dishes, cold solid rice, the list goes on
One day recently one of our children commented he couldn't eat the sausages because they were cold (breaking food hygiene law) that could have given my 3 year old food poisoning.
I am a chef of 20 years so I do have some knowledge of how to do things correctly.
If the food issues were sorted out I would bring my custom back to this hotel.
The hotel is based at one of the most prestigious marinas in the country in an affluent area but the food is better at mc'donalds.
They must know that the local reputation of this hotel is being damaged by its poor food....I know if it had great food(even if it was simple food) it would be packed the whole time, they are missing a trick..
