Called in last Wednesday, had a drink and bar snacks, not too bad. Barman not too sure where everything was or what beer and wine they had. So to give them the benefit of the doubt we booked Sunday lunch in the Smugglers Restaurant, once again the Barman not too sure how to do it.
Turned up on the Sunday at 1.30 as booked, to be asked have you booked, and we might have enough lamb for two!! The two lunches finally turned up and it looked disgusting, half a roast potato unrecognisable veg two sodden Yorkshire puddings and the whole lot swimming in gravy.
Needless to say we didn't touch it and walked out, meeting a member of staff on the way out told her it was disgusting all she said was sorry.
All the staff didn't seem to have a clue how to run a business. We managed to have an excellent lunch elsewhere.
