We travel through Strathmore a few times a year and recently began stopping for refreshments, although this was the first time we stopped at the Station. As we entered I noticed a Certificate of Excellence and thought "Should be good!"
It was not as good...as as COE labelled restaurant should be, in fact it was barely average.
We were greeted and seated in a friendly manner, told our jug of water would be brought right away, which it was, then forgotten about (or ignored) as the server moved from table to table, only four of which were occupied, asking of coffee refills were needed etc.
I normally do not mind this if the staff are busy, but there were only a dozen people in the place, and we had some very hungry kids with us. I tried to get some attention a couple of times, but with no luck.
Finally the server came around for drink orders, and we were ready to order our meals as well.
The kids meals were enormous and the boys really enjoyed them, but of course age and hunger may have had something to do with this.
My clubhouse was really average and not spectacular, although how much extra can go into a sandwich,
Where they really failed was in the french fry department....raw inside and barely warm on the outside,
Like eating dough.
I gave an average but this is a bit below taht on the scale.
Lots of options for us travellers, so will not get a second chance.More
