Tried the Hotel's 'dip and dine' bargain yesterday. A swim and lunch for £10. Seemed like a good deal. Arrived at the hotel at ten to twelve. Swim ok, then bar for lunch at one o'clock. The waiter came to our table immediately and took our drinks and meal order - we ordered the goats cheese tartlet with salad and chips. At that time there were only about a dozen customers in the bar. About twenty minutes later a large party of men arrived and a group of four on a table close to us. We waited and waited and queried the meal with a waitress and were then astounded that the meals began to arrive for the large group of men and then the four people who had all arrived after us. The waitress seemed to think we were being unreasonable and told us that we had only been waiting for forty-five minutes. Apparently they had to cook these tarts from total scratch. If she'd said they'd lost the order and apologized you could have understood it, but no, the fault was ours! When the meal was finally served can you believe that when we said thank you, the waiter actually said, "no problem." I was too gobsmacked to speak. So, if you go for lunch at the Berry Head, make sure you have no afternoon appointments - and take a good book with you, or two.
