I had a Burns Night meal at the Forest Park on Saturday. The atmosphere was fantastic - a real party feel. Everyone had a very jolly time - wonderful. It was a pity the same couldn't be said about the food - very ordinary indeed. I have had better meals in pubs quite honestly. The dressed salad had never seen a dressing. One of the pudding courses was advertised as Cranachan Cheesecake. Now Cranachan is one of my all time favourite desserts and I was REALLY looking forward to it. Well if you like your Cranachan minus the whisky and minus the honey and minus the oatmeal and minus everything else apart from the cream, then you would have been happy. Unfortunately it was not what I was expecting at all! I think that the chef thinks that "Cranachan" is a Scottish word for "Whipped Cream" However, apart from the actual food, the evening was terrific - I would certainly recommend the Burns evening. I had a great time.
