The Milk Churn a much needed new venue in Melksham. First impressions decor good, atmosphere okay nothing special, lots of staff moving around but did not appear to be doing anything productive apart from constantly asking "is everything alright for you" or similar. Personally I dislike this intrusion when trying to enjoy some quality time with the person I am out with. Although in general the service was good. My partner and I duly chose our meals from a fairly limited menu,( Priced are a little high I thought) I ordered one of the American subs, having lived in both America and Canada I knew what to expect, lashings of beef topped with cheese with the added veg in small amounts to just enough to enhance the flavours. What a disappointment when it arrived, 2 very small thin slices of beef (even my partner commented on the miniscule amount of beef)sat on a large amount of onions, topped with green peppers.(As green peppers have quite a strong pungent flavour a few slices would be great not 11) Both the amount of onions and peppers overpowered the beef, had I had a blindfold on I would have thought I was having a cheese and veggie sub, also it arrived without the accompanying fries.(Not that they were needed bread and fries too many carbs!, a little more of the side salad would have been great forget the fries) Another reason for the visit was to explore the vegetarian options with the thought of taking my daughter at some future date.
Yet again same old options with the exception of veggie lasagne. I have to say here not the only eating establishment around with very limited and uninspiring veggie options. I being a non vegetarian have numerous choices from a menu, so why do we penilise vegetarians with only offering 4-5 options are our chefs so unimaginitive or creative? Therefore will not be returning with my daughter. However my partner and I may visit again some time in the future as with a first visit to a new venue one has to take into account some teething problems.
