My husband and I set off to Littlecote with some trepidation after our disastrous birthday weekend at Cricket St Thomas three weeks before. Well our fears were completely unfounded as to our great delight our experience at Littlecote was as excellent as Cricket was bad.
The food and the presentation of food was amazing. Such a mouthwatering choice of dishes to choose from. From the little individual baskets the chips arrived in to the miniature saucepans holding vegetables to the little slates some of the deserts were on - all a world away from our experience at Cricket. Also the tables were not crammed together so the whole eating experience a delight. Our waitress at Cricket had too many tables to wait on and she was rude whereas our delightful waiter - Matevsz (Matthew) - could not do enough for us. He was attentive, helpful and polite. Good man.
The entertainment staff worked their socks off with excellent shows and the pantomine just so funny. It was the same pantomine - Dick Whittington - as Cricket but vastly superior and hilarious. It was lovely to see that the Entertainments Director - Dan - still there. What a talented man he is.
All the staff - apart from the very rude Italian (or Spanish) lady organising the seating in the main restaurant- were most helpful and obviously enjoyed their job.
There was so much going on as well - this being a Turkey and Tinsel week.
I can only suggest that the Manager of Cricket along with his Entertainments Director and Head Chef, should visit Littlecote to see how it should be done!!
We went home with our faith in Warners restored. We will most certainly return to Littlecote.
