We have just returned from a fantastic couple of days at Bowood where the only bad point was the dinner in the Shelburne restaurant This is our second stay at the hotel and this time we came with friends for a short mid week break. The hotel and rooms were lovely as was the spa and grounds but on our last night we decided to eat in the restaurant instead of going to the wonderful pub just outside the hotel gate. Two of the group had starters that were only ok but when the main meals arrived the cod dish was the size of a starter portion. The cod was over cooked, there were two tiny potatoes and a teaspoon size portion of samphire. When the manager came over to ask if we needed anything else my friend replied" yes the rest of my dinner". This was greeted with a glare and she said that she would give feedback to the chef. When we said this wasn't good enough we were offered a cup of coffee! We eventually got the cod taken off the bill but we had to suggest that as it was not going to be offered. The rest of the mains were of larger portions but both the steaks were over cooked. My friend had to go up to her room to get some crisps as she was still hungry. Not a nice way to end what had been a lovely couple of days.
