Pâté like liquid. Repulsive texture. Salads all lettuce, not much else. Fish pie pre-prepared and microwaved. Unpalatable, dry, fish hard, leeks stringy. Thank God it was a small serving! Risotto made with cream and butter, no option to make one without. Staff admitted this was another pre-prepared dish which they just microwave and there was no chef to make a fresh serving. This is not in accord with their advertising statement that all food is freshly prepared on site. It clearly isn't. Service ok, polite and apologetic. However, at prices like this you expect genuinely fresh preparation, qualified chef on site, better portions, and much much better quality. Feels like typical chain store economics at work. Corners have been cut to increase profit. Staff left to cope in a very embarrassing situation. Very disappointing. Will not return.
