What an absolute disappointment! I had been really looking forward to coming here! We walked about 6 miles to get here! Place was heaving! Wonderful looking place! In a wonderful part if the world! From the outset we were ambushed by wasps whilst sitting outside! We then went to sit inside and were ambushed by more wasps! We ordered food which when delivered was slapped (the only words to describe this) on our table! We were not asked if we would like any condiments! The chips were cold! And the rarebit we had ordered was pleasant enough but paltry! At £10 for glorified cheese in toast! One expected a little more than one circle if bread!!!!! My partner went to the bar and asked for the wine list and then attempted to order a bottle of wine! The waiter asked for her order and then proceeded to serve the next 2 customers!!!!!! When my partner asked for our wine - an Australian Chardonnay! The waiter offered a bottle of a French wine! He then stated he would bring it to our table, by this point our food was cold cold cold! The waiter then finally delivered our wine to our table in a more than sarcastic manner! All in all a very poor service! Despite the hotel being very busy! And clearly not enough staff to cope with demands! I would certainly not rush here in a hurry! A very over rated priced place for lunch! Better service in McDonald's and a 5th of the price! What a let down!
