'All you can eat for £8.99, £3.49 for kids' tempted us to book Sunday lunch for a reunion with friends from an hour's drive away. We arrived at 1:15 but all the beef had already gone, so our four beef orders had to be downgraded to the mundane (and much cheaper to provide) chicken. One chose the pork, but the child's portion arriving suggested the kitchen staff were under instruction to eek out the dwindling supplies thereof before again substituting kitchen. The vegetables were fine and I particularly liked the reconstituted deep fried roast potatoes - reminded me of hash browns. Ensuring that all our party's plates were properly empty I took the remainder of my chicken to accompany it with the advertised 'as much vegetables as you can eat'. Rather than the usual self serve bar, a manager offered to take my plate out to the kitchens for a refill - except that all the roast potatoes had run out. Being made to feel like an embarrassed Oliver Twist, I returned empty handed to my seat and we resolved to go elsewhere for our coffees - just in case the water had run out! All these stock shortages were blamed on 'more customers than expected'. Come on guys, you knew the weather forecast. take some risks with your supply chain and order enough.
