Lunch today was my fifth restaurant meal of the week (not bad huh) but unfortunately it was hands down the worst.
I’m not often one to really criticise restaurants.
I just like food.
(I am aware of how that sounds!)
I mean I’ll even say McDonald’s is pretty tasty.
However this restaurtant was just awful.
We walk in and there are about 6 waitresses standing around at the entrance but it takes a good two minutes before one actually comes to see us.
Then it was a good five minutes before we were brought a menu.
When it came to ordering drinks she came back with three of them and informed me that they “didn’t do” apple juice. They only had orange. Fine. Not only that though, they didn’t have the drink my mum ordered either. Even though this restaurant has a bar.
Anyway moving on, to be fair to them, the starter wasn’t badly cooked, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
The main was…interesting.
Along with the main courses came roast potatoes and cooked veg. The potatoes were actually quite good. The veg? Well lets just say it seemed to have been in a steamer for the last three hours. The broccoli was brown.
Not great to be completely honest.
The only redeeming factor was the dessert.
My mum’s dessert was not the redeeming factor of her meal. The raspberries decorating her summer pudding were mouldy. Seriously.
Luckily we didn’t have to pay for that particular pudding.
Unfortunately we still had to pay for the rest!
Right, I’m over my rant now 😛
The nice thing about the restaurant (yes there is a positive, there always is) is that it’s set right by the river.
It made for a lovely walk after the meal.
What was your worst ever restaurant experience?
