I have been staying with my sister in Brighton and on Saturday of the Easter Bank holiday weekend we went to Eastbourne via the Coast Road. On the way home,about six pm we spotted The White Horse Hotel at Rottingdean. In the early evening sunshine it looked very inviting with it's sea front position. My sister and I decided that we would try there for Sunday lunch. We rang and reserved a table and arrived quite excited at the prospect of lunch. Our greeting at the bar was very friendly and professional and he happily went to find out about our reservation. We were given the choice of staying in the bar or going directly to the table which is what we did. We decided to have the carvery, at £8.99, and went to the carvery counter.
our first impression of that was not too good because it was rather small and although there was someone to carve he was not a chef and I don't think he was aware that all was not well with the food. I was not aware either until I returned to the table.
I had roast beef ( topside ) although I could of had some of the Turkey as well. The meat was perfectly cooked and beautifully tender with a hint of pink. The vegatables were roast potatoes,parsnip chips cabbage and swede.
Unfortunately,all of them were note very hot so when the young waitress enquirer wether everything was ok I told her that we were not happy with the temperature of The meal and plate. She appeared to take this on board and apologised but no one of authority came back to us at any time
once she had left us suddenly most of the customers agreed that they were not happy with their meal either. One said he had asked the waitress to microwave their meal another said they had accepted that the meal would be only warm!!
So, I would suggest you book but check that the carvery and the plates are hot before you select them. Other choices seemed good and sensibly priced. Such a shame that it was not as good as it appeared.
