My mother and I visited the Brasserie restaurant at the hotel,with my sister,who lives in the area ,and had enjoyed a very good evening there on a previous occasion.She recommended it to us and we booked a table,with 2 other friends.The restaurant was accomodating when we increased the party number by one,and changed the time by half an hour.The purpose of the visit was to catch up with old friends,eat some good food and enjoy a relaxed evening.The resataurant delivered with the ambience -we felt relaxed,there was no 'shout over' music and we were able to chat easily.However,we were disapponted with the food,which,although 'not bad' was lack-lustre to say the least.On arrival we were told there was no scampi/monkfish left(it was only 8.30 p.m-in a big hotel)and when I ordered the Shepherds pie,I was told that was also finished.The Brasserie menu was quite limited,possibly 6 mains,so to be told 2 of them were unavailable was not really acceptable.When the food arrived it looked,and tasted quite bland and portion sizes were 'small' I had ordered the 'suckling pig' -what arrived was 2 smallish pieces of what looked like belly pork,very fatty and with no crisp skin,tender to eat but fairly tasteless,accompanied by a 'smear' of mashed potato,a roast beetroot and turnip,both less in size than a golf ball,there must have been another veg ?but I don't remember it,and no 'stuffing'as advertised in the menu description.Edible,yes,disappointing,yes.Other mains fared the same-one of the party did have curry,which he said was tasty but nothing special.We had an enjoyable evening,as we were able to relax and chat but the food was not as expected.It could have been that they were having an 'off-night'-the place was pretty busy for a mid-week evening ,and relatives had enjoyed a good meal on a previous occasion.
