I have often frequented the hotel and had afternoon tea in the gardens during the summer which has been excellent.
On this occasion I dined in the restaurant and we had 'posh fish and chips', our waitress was great but the meal was grossly overpriced at just a shade under £18 each.
There were no prices on the menu so
Maybe we should have known better...however I couldn't believe the price when we got the bill so i questioned the amount. Bearing in mind this is a 3 star hotel in cooden not London or Brighton which astonishingly is asking 4/5 star prices.
For what was a mediocre meal.
We've eaten at Jamie olivers and various other restaurants in London and Brighton where we've had a much better meal and paid considerably less.
In fact I will go as far as to say it was offensively and grossly overpriced. We like to support local restaurants but we will not be returning.
