I decided to call in the Inverkip to try their food, as I was out that way exploring the area.
After looking over the menu I decided on chicken breast and haggis on a bed of tagliatelle in leek and cream sauce. The waiter brought the meal to my table and I began to eat. As is customary, after a few minutes I was asked if I was enjoying my food. I said yes, and got the reply Enjoy! What was that, a command? Anyway, I continue with my meal and trying to read a book, when I was interrupted a second time, by another member of staff asking the same question. I then when back to eating and a third member of staff came up and only asked the same question again. Unfortunately, by this time I had run out of patience. I don't think she'll be asking anyone else for a while.
Why is it that staff always ask you if you re enjoying the food when you've just taken a mouthful? Do they lie in wait around a corner and think "nearly, nearly, there it goes, in his mouth, time to strike!" Bad enough at the best of times, but really infuriating on this occasion.
Score marked down for this. Would have been four dots otherwise.More
