We have always spoken very highly of Hislops but our last dining experience there was disappointing, the friendly helpful staff rated ten out of ten but the food and the general condition of the cafe let them down.
We booked the day prior for an evening meal, the table reserved for us was so scratched that we thought it had not been cleaned from previous diners. The food was rather odd flavor combinations and just o.k. but what we really noticed was that the meals were quite small and were padded out with lettuce and mussel shells to look substantial. We had three courses. The evening was saved by a delicious citrus bread and butter pudding and the two women who served us who went out of there way to be natural friendly, informative and helpful.
