I have just taken my wife and father in law to the Avonhead Tavern for a meal. We were greeted at the door and asked whether we could have a meal for 3. We were seated at a table with menus already at each seating so we decided what we were to have. After 10 minutes, another staff member came over and said we could not order off the menu - only the blackboard. So after a few minutes we ordered.
I then saw burgers coming out to another customer so asked the waitress how come since burgers were not on the blackboard menu. She asked if we had seen the extra sheet with burgers on it. Well no - otherwise I would not have expressed surprise. So she offered to get our orders held while we checked out the burger part of the menu.
Back she came 30 seconds later - no - too late to hold up the order. 15 minutes later our meals arrived out. Must have been the longest cooked chicken parcel or maybe someone was out catching the cod or salmon.
The meal was OK - nothing out of the ordinary - merely OK. No hint of apology for the shocking service. We will not be rushing back.
