We visited the Estate over the easter weekend and decided to end our visit with a coffee in the restaurant. Now…it was the Easter weekend and there was a lunch offer, so diets were offered a choice of three items for each course. By my reckoning, this would mean that the kitchen would have had ample reason to be prepared and organised, so serving coffee after the lunch period should not have been a stretch.
When we entered the restaurant, the waiter said he'd have to check if there was a table (we could see several empty tables…).
We were seated at a very nice table within the restaurant, and placed our coffee order. No, we were told, there was nothing to eat with the coffee, unless we wanted to order desserts from the lunch menu. No water was offered or provided.
When our coffees arrived, a significant amount of mine was spilt in the saucer. the waiter had notched this, as he commented on it. However, no serviette was provided to limit drips, nor was any offer made to provide a clean saucer.
So….can't comment on the food- none was available to us. View was beautiful. Service…hmmm…not up to scratch in my opinion. Ambience? Couldn't feel the love.More
