I've just returned from a wedding reception at this hotel. The setting was lovely and allowed for some pretty pictures. The various rooms used were perfectly adequate with the big exception that there were far too few chairs for everyone to sit and eat the buffet supper. However, the food was dreadful. I have never had such a dreary and stodgy offering anywhere before. A pub could have done better. Nearly everything was brown in colour; the quiche had a ridiculously thick base and very little topping; the chichen pieces were too highly spiced and were dry - I could go on but you get the pucture. The dessert was dark brown or darker brown - actually both tasted reasonably ok. The best food was the wedding cake made by the bride's aunt. I know you get what you pay for but I've have eaten better and more appetising buffet food that I'm sure cost no more, probably less. If that is the best the hotel can do at this budget level then they should be ashamed of themselves and withdraw that menu selection immediately. It has put me off so much that I would probably never use a de Vere hotel for any future function, however high a budget I have.
