Easter 2017 lovely holiday and 3 meals at The Three Pilchards great food, service and atmosphere.
Fast forward to Easter 2018
Visited for dinner ordered Pate to start and were presented with mushed flaked fish (with a blackberry on top - presumably so it looked good)
Sadly I can’t eat fish so didn’t touch it - my wife tried some and wasn’t impressed to say the least.
Waiter did ask if everything was okay and did accept that the menu just stated pate but added insult to injury by declaring “you can’t expect to visit the seaside and not eat fish !”
He finished with “I’ll speak to my manager”
Ok we thought - perhaps there will be some common sense here and we won’t be charged
No such luck - obviously us city dwellers on vacation aren’t sufficiently cultured enough to realise that when by the sea one must eat fish
And perhaps it is possible that there are those heathens in general society who can’t eat fish so remarkably have learned not to order it from a menu.
Rest of our food was great to be fair but the damage was done and we had to pay £17.90 for two plates of mushed smoked fish that we didn’t eat.
24 hours on and we popped in for an evening drink around 5pm - as we entered we were asked “eating or drinking”. As drinkers only, we were directed towards the bar as if only those eating could sit - even though tables with seats were available!
2 of 4 draft beers weren’t available and repeatedly the waitress reached past us as though we were in her way. Couldn’t wait to get out of there to be honest.
Sorry owners and staff of The Three Pilchards - you may be proud of your achievements since late 2015 but on this occasion you got it wrong.
Our reason for popping in for a drink? Blue Peter Inn was really full
I wonder why .................
