As ever, the hospitality and ambience at Greywalls proved to be second-to-none. Lunch too was great, although we were there on the first day of a new abbreviated lunchtime menu that harks back to bar-food and snacks rather than the full three courser to which we have become happily accustomed. I feel that this is a mistake. Sure, offer this style of service in the bar, but please provide a pukka lunchtime service for those wanting to sit down for a couple of hours. The food itself was great - no doubt about it - and the 4 course tasting plate option was an interesting offer (served mezze or thali-style on one large platter - meaning that the dessert has to be wrapped in tissue to keep it warm, or the entire meal has to be wolfed down sharpish - the option I chose). Service was as bright and friendly as ever although there was some uncertainty - on this opening day - regarding the precise nature of the plates on offer.
It is plain to see why Greywalls has decided to adopt this course: It smacks of efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Perhaps, in time, I will come to love it but I can't deny a hankering for the traditional regime - and a good digestif!
Thankyou for yet another lovely afternoon Greywalls. I hope you won't mind my offering an opinion.
