A Venetian restaurateur once told me that he hates the English because they complain about their food after they've eaten and when he could do noting about it.
I enjoyed the meal I had here, however it wasn't perfect. The issues with the meal weren't large enough to make a complaint, and spoil it for the remainder of my party, but there were still issues. These issues included slightly crusty mashed potato, probably due to keeping the meal warm while preparing the meals for the rest of my party. The Chicken Wellington was tasty, but the pastry was short crust rather than puff, puff would of worked better (in my opinion). The meal's temperature was not consistent. None of it was cold, but some of it was too hot to eat, while other bits were warm; this did affect the enjoyment of the meal and makes me questioned how it was reheated. None of my party complained about their meals.
I want to emphasise that I enjoyed the meal, but I wish it was better.
The decoration of the hotel seemed authentic and in keeping with the age of the property although the plastic Mecure signs did detract, however this is standard fayre for a chain hotel.
The Manager of this hotel seems to reply to all of these messages, which is great attention to detail. Sorry I didn't highlight my problems to the waiter/host/receptionist/barman, however he seemed rushed off his feet and the meal was enjoyable enough at the time and I didn't want to spoil my party's meals.
