Our 1st time eating here and sorry to say it will be the last, we have eaten out in loads of places and i have not complained about any meal, i am a lover of duck so decided to order the half crispy duck, my hubby hab the gammon, it was ok by the way...when my duck arrived i could see at once that the skin was soggy and not crisp as expected and as ordered, i have never eaten soggy skin on a duck before and really didnt want to eat it this time either... i removed all the skin which is very thick and started to eat the duck breast, one of the waitresses came and asked if the meal was ok but i think she knew i wasnt impressed, i said i was sorry to complain but that i culdnt eat my meal, she removed it and took it to the chef, after a dhort time my meal came out again with the skin havin being dropped into a deep fat fryer to crispen it up....not good, only the outside was crispy, inside still soggy, a chef should know to make the skin lovely and crispy then it needs dried out, either on the duck or as i do, remove it and place on a roasting tin...the meal was expensive enough without it being soggy, would i recommend the cromore for a meal, yes it is ok, clean, friendly staff but they are not good at doin crispy duck and i have had quite a few over the years, sorry but do not order it if you go there for a meal... i can recommend the desserts, the ones we ate were heavenly, i had cromore cheesecake and hubby had sticky toffee pudding, yum yum....
