The Gascony is a B&B hotel with restaurant facilities, centrally located in Minehead.
We were tempted by “Fresh baked cod with provencale sauce with new potatoes or jacked wedges and vegetables…..£10.50”, and wanted to give it a try, ref. attached photo.
After the order had been taken I for some reason said to my wife; “let us double-check that the meal will be served with new potatoes”. The answer from the waitress was surprising, as we were then told there were not enough new potatoes left, so we could choose between chips and vegetables. We found this a bit strange, but we had already started sharing a bottle of nice white wine, so we decided to continue. When the meal had been served we immediately found that the “fresh baked cod” was no more than a below-average pub battered cod & chips meal, except for the price: A few days earlier we had a far better meal at “the Hobby Horse Inn” down at the Esplanade at the price of 6£. So of course we did not bother to try the Gascony again. This review does only apply to the restaurant, as we did not stay at the accomodation.
