I recently went out for a meal in St Agnes, we went to a lovely venue in the centre of the town which was painted a vivacious orange. Everything was really perfect and I will definitely go there again. It reminded me of a previous occasion when a member if my family invited nine of us to join her in the St Agnes Hotel for her 90th birthday lunch party. She excited us all by saying she had been in to speak to the owners and arranged for fresh fish to be available. She is a resident of St Agnes. When we arrived, during a winter month, we were directed to a dining room which was so cold that some of the party did not remove their coats or hats. The owners came to speak to us and must have been aware how cold we were, but no comment was made and no heat offered.
We ordered a variety of dishes. Most people had the supposedly fresh fish and found it to be old and horrid. One person ordered their house beef burger and hard as it is to believe, that was so terrible that she did not eat it. It was over cooked to the point of obliteration. I chose the fish pie and couldn't eat it as it was so full of fish scales that I couldn't even contemplate picking them out and making the best of a bad job. As we were guests they got away with it as none of us wanted to embarrass birthday girl by complaining. Had the circumstances been different we would all definitely returned our food untouched and refused to pay.
Our poor elderly birthday girl spent the rest of the day apologising to us, she is a pensioner and it cost her a lot, but far more importantly it ruined her day.
She will never go back there (hence the lovely terracotta venue last week) and neither will any of the rest of us.
What hard hearted people to let down a sweet old lady on her 90th birthday.
