Went to The Pear Tree last night! Think they forgot our 9pm table, two people left just before 9 and when we enquired at 9.20 they hastily prepared one. When we went through there were 3 empty tables. Strongly suspect they forgot us! Starter was good (only had one!). Requested the jug of tap water for a second time which arrived this time!!! Ordered the sea bream x2. Waited nervously as the table of 6 or so behind had just expressed their serious displeasure (albeit politely) about waiting an hour for their “second course”. Sea bream arrived without advertised new potatoes or sides. Told these would be out shortly. Stared at fish for a while and decided to start before it went cold, not least as there were no staff within sight and still not as we finished…at which point a member of staff appeared half round a corner with a tray of what may have been our potatoes and sides, looked at our table and disappeared sharpish! Still no communication! They must have guessed someone had gone without…
I'm not a great fan of being asked incessantly “how's your meal?” and on this occasion we weren't…not once…which would have been an opportunity to flag what was missing…which we did eventually and there was an apology and we got a free cheese board and glass of wine, although I'm not sure that compensated with hindsight. We were wished on our way with a “don't worry we'll feed you up on potatoes next time” which was well intentioned…tho added to the feeling of how to get things wrong and fail to make good!
