On a visit to Llanrwst wales this month we decided to find somewhere for Sunday lunch we were recommended several places ,but the one that took our fancy was the eagle hotel Llanrwst reasons being the location being riverside also Sunday lunch his a carvery which myself and my wife enjoy.
Although the price of the main course, was I thought somewhat expensive (£9.95)
we decided to have lunch there.
Because thinking of the price and the hotel location this would be value for money expecting to have to wait for a table , we booked in advance and arrived 30mins earlier as I feared I would not get a parking space .
On arrival parking was not a concern the time was 13-20pm there were only 4 tables taken the rest were empty .
We were told our table was ready as soon as we entered we could see the food on the counter
but couldn't really define what was what until we were close up the waitress had to go and get he chef to serve us . we were expecting freshly cooked joints of Lamb, Turkey, Honey Roasted ham
to be carved in front of us as we have had at other establishments instead there were several towers of cut Lamb cut Turkey and Honey roasted ham at an height of 6" or more, not covered fly's landing on it I mentioned this to the chef but I was ignored. It was quite obvious that this meat although edible was not a fresh roasted joint it had no taste and was bland I think they call it in the trade as formed meat (proccessed) the slices of meat I was given reminded me of the packed meat you get in the supermarket which is OK but I wasn't at a supermarket I was at carvery for Sunday lunch where I would expect meat to be sliced of a real joint and I would expect a chef to carve it.
For £9-95 I expected more from this establishment from the outside it looks good has it is in a good location and that the standard and quality would be high but not so.
