After reading all of the great reviews we had high expectations of Albatross and Arnold. However, we arrived on Saturday evening to find nobody on the front desk. There was a private party going on in the main room so we hung around for a bit until someone came to show us around to the bar at the back. There were 5 tables and only one was occupied so we were a bit surprised it wasn’t busy given the great reviews. However the waitress told us later that somebody must have taken our booking by mistake because the kitchen was so busy with the party and a few large tables in the golf rooms. Because of the party the music was really loud, luckily we didn’t mind at all and really enjoyed it. We had the 5 course tasting menu and the first course arrived after quite a delay. Unfortunately the scallops were luke warm but after that the service and the food improved. However I don’t think others had the same luck as one table made quite a show of making a complaint in the middle of the room. Despite this I would recommend to others, I think perhaps we just got them on a bad night.
