Went to a formal black tie dinner here and the food was a disaster. The starter was a pile of chopped salad leaves with a small mushroom in the middle, supposedly stuffed with cheese but that had obviously melted off. No bread or rolls offered with it.
The main course was 'pan fried duck" which was so tough nearly everyone on our table left it. It was accompanied by a warm , very sweet dark fruit sauce and grey cauliflower and overlooked broccoli .
The pudding described as Eaton mess ( I think they meant Eton after the school it originated from) was just cream with something red through it. I think the meringues had long melted into the cream. We had a very long wait for this. The table we were on only received our coffee as the speeches ended and it was time to go home.
We all said we were hungry and wanted to got get home to eat something.
Such ar shame as it is a lovely venue and very friendly staff serving. Something must have gone very wrong In the kitchen last night.
