I live in the Richmond area and often go to the Bingham hotel for drinks. Have aalways found the quality of the staff in the bar to be high standard so was very excited to finally have a try of the restuarant.
Overall I was quite disappointed with almost every part of the meal.
Bread- usually the bread served at the beginning of the meal is an indication to be of the quality of the place I am eating. It therefore should have been a warning when the roll I had was incredibly hard to cut open, very dry and lacked any taste.
Starter - I ordered a duck egg / asparagas starter, but after I placed my order was informed by a member of staff that the item was part of the winter menu which had changed, so I needed to pick another item. Istead I ended up with the bacon risotto which I have to say was very lovely.
Main - My main course was skate, and lacked anything resembling texture or flavour. It was a very bland item that needed at the least more salt.
Dessert - I ordered the cheese plate but again wasn't really impressed with the quality of the cheeses I was given.
Service - The service was lackluster at best, the mistake with my starter being an example. The people who ordered cheese received their desserts 10 minutes before the rest of the table. We actually had to get up from the table and go find the server to find out where the dessert was.
Overall I was underimpressed and will stick to the bar for drinks.
