The starter and main courses were both disappointing lacking any real flavour; the quality of the meat (lamb) was poor.
Service was also poor. Staff had to be reminded twice that we were still waiting on drinks having ordered the drinks twice.There was a 'hard 'sell on desserts;having stated unambiguously, that we would not be having dessert ,staff replied that we could reconsider this and therefore, the menus would be left on the table. Further ,twice during the meal I tried to attract the attention of a staff member to get some bread and remind them that drinks had not arrived. However this proved very difficult as they tended to hold lengthy discussions with other customers.
The above aside , two experiences were particularly off putting:
1. My starter plate had 10 individual finger printers on it's rim:the rim of my main course plate was wiped with a cloth that smeared the complete surface.
2.Cutlery had not been cleaned properly and was stained.
With charges of £50 per head (their website) the above should not have happened .
Next time the venue will be different.
