Superb meal & service in lovely thatched inn5
as we approached all looked lovely, and we were even happily suprised to find a live jazz band playing. However, this is where the magic ended.
Possibly due to the band, the manager (who was plonked behind the bar, and had been surly on the ohone when we tried to book) eventually fetched us some drinks - and despite having "booked" we were left in the louge to look over the menu.
This would have been fine - the place seemed packed - if we'd only been left for 10 minutes.
An HOUR later we were asked our order (whilst still sat in the bar area) and were told that NOTHING on the menu was gluten free!?
We were then left again for anouther 25mins...meaning we'd waited, with no offer of more drinkks, for nearly an hour and a half despite booking.
When we were eventually taken through to the next door room we were shocked to see a) a basically empty room (why had we been waiting so long?) and b) the empty tables still had dirty plates and glasses on them.
We werent offered water or drinks when initially sat down (or ever), and then waited ANOTHER 20 mins for any form of food to appear! the food itself was okay...but cant have taken all that time to cook!
When we left the waitress didnt even attempt to clear away most of the stuff on our table, and the manager was very uninterested when we came to pay the bill.
All in all a very dissapointing trip.
Lazy disinterested staff. No concept of time management, manners or cleaning. The manager just seemed like he wanted to sit and watch the band.
