A restaurant I have been to many times over the years, in different seasons, for lunch and dinner. The setting is of course lovely, and if you have children, space is not a problem (though be warned: a large portion of St James's Park is closer than the car you foolishly came in and have been forced to park somewhere near Bird Cage Walk). Usually it serves reliable, simple English fare with not many thrills – not terribly exciting, but good. But restaurants change management and change staff, and that’s not always a good thing…Inn the Park has been through a lot change recently and judging from experience none of it good. The only detail I will share from what was by some distance the worst dining experience I have had in quite some time – and I am including several meals eaten in Sutton – is that after waiting several hours for our main courses (and having had to re-order one because they had run out of something), the waiter returned shame-faced to the table and declared that the restaurant had ‘run out of chips’. (!!)
