Well I have been to this hotel several times over the years for many various reasons, works do, kid’s football awards etc.
On this joyous occasion it was for my partner’s brother wedding, I was excited as I haven't been to a wedding for a while. The venue where the ceremony was held in the hotel was nicely dressed, chairs covered red carpet laid out. After the wedding service there was the traditional photos and so forth in between photos we were going to the bar for a drink and waiting around for the room to get set up for the wedding meal. I found the bar cold and very uninviting no music to create an atmosphere, I thought it might be me so I asked if anyone else was and a few said yes. We were called in for the meal and once again the room looked nice and the tables impressive, I thought this is going to be a good meal, the soup was lovely and came with a bread role, one of the party asked for another bread roll and was told there was no more the waiter didn't even go and check! We asked again if he would check and he did then come out with a couple. The main course was next I thought well it looks very small one rounded roast potato, two small pieces of chicken on a plate and some vegetable in a bowl that no one really touched just didn't taste that good ( I hate to criticize as I love food and I am easily please but was disappointed with the offering ) The pudding was next it was sticky toffee pudding my eyes lit up it was a good size portion, we then waited for the custard that never came , when asked about it there was a look of...... are you not happy and made you feel like you should not be asking for any. By now everyone was waiting for custard some started to eat it thinking there was none to be had about 10 minutes s or more one jug of custard came out for the entire room by the time there had served the other table and got to us it must have been 20 minutes I thought there must of been a custard shortage. We then went into the other part of the hotel for a disco and dancing which were fine as was the buffet. Nothing you would write home about. The main thing about this experience is that the bride and groom were happy so that made happy. If that had been my wedding day then it would have got a fifty out of 100 the reason I say this was because the bar was very cold earlier on until later, the service from the waiters wasn’t good, the food average considering this was someone’s wedding day. Would I use that venue again? Yes it serves a purpose but definitely not for an important event.
