The £22 three course Thursday night dinner in the 'Skyline Restaurant' was horrendously bad. So called 'Catch of The Day' was a heated up, greasy smoked mackerel fillet with a huge mound of 'minted mushy peas' which had an overpowering, terrible taste of dried mint. The only edible parts of the main course were a small quantity of boiled potatos and a few carrots. The dessert of frozen yoghurt was nearly completely melted and served with some cherries in a sauce which tasted very bitter. The best course was the starter of melon which I had without the parma ham - straight from the fridge and far too cold but ripe and juicy.
Of course one doesn't go for a night at a Greyhound Stadium for the food but this was truly dreadful.
Food aside, the service was very good, particularly when some of our group complained about their steaks (which attracted a £4 supplement!) and replacements were offered with a smile and without hesitation. The drinks are good value too and cheaper than most pubs in the area. I certainly had no complaints about the bottle of Merlot at £14. What a shame that the dismal food spoiled what was otherwise a good night out.
