I booked the vip area for my mums 60th birthday party.
I paid £120 for food to feed 30 people.
I was give 3 bowls of chips.
One tray of sausage rolls
3 bowls of natchs and dips
2 trys of battered mushrooms and dips.
And 2 trays of cucumber and carrot sticks with a bit of salad and dips.
How is that a reflection of what I paid for.
I asked the deputy manager if that was all the food to which he replyed" yes I brought it out my self." I dont think he even checked in the kitchen.
It took a feather 10 minutes to get his attention again.
To which he told me he had called the manager.
So I waited to see the manager when he came out he went over to the cupboard and took out the buffet menu he read it to us then showed it to us.
I was with a friend at this poit and we both re read it.
Once we had looked over the menu we noticed we hadent recived one of the items and informed the manager.
He then went over to the vip area and had a look around. Walked back out and headed to the kitchen.
A few members of the party noticed he had a packet of cigarettes in his top pocket.
A few minuets later he came back out with the wraps that we had not received. He said "these were in the fridge they forgot them"
They weren't even cold.
But even added to what was brought out how dose 2 trays of wraps with a bit of salad total what we paid.
Another bowl of nachos with various dips came a few mins later but you could tell it had been thrown together. And were partly cold too.
As a good will gesture we later recived 4 bottles of champagne.
Which was nice however some of the guests were driving and couldn't drink and some of the guests were child so couldnt there enjoy the free drinks.
I felt let by the clipper as I often go in there for lunch with my mum or niece. I expecred more.
Instead I felt I had to apologise to the guests for the lack of food of which some people never ate as there wasnt enought to go around.
I felt embarrassed that I had even chosen the clipper.
I will not be coming back here again and I will be telling others of my experience here.
