This was possibly [no, actually almost definitely] the worst meal I have eaten in my life. The ‘smoked haddock’ starter was mixed haddock and salmon – NOT a happy combination.
The wine was vile. I have never before or since complained about wine. Unfortunately my companion's taste buds were blown to pieces by chemo but, when I mentioned that the wine tasted odd, the waiter returned to say that there was nothing wrong with it. Not a visit to our table by the wine waiter, not an offer of a replacement bottle, nada. Total humiliation.
I can't even remember what the main course was — it was that good!!
The iced dessert was so well frozen that it completely failed to thaw to an edible consistency, despite my ‘politic’ retirement to the ladies. Still frozen to a rock-like consistency after a more-than-usually lengthy pit-stop.
Poor Tom paid out over the odds for this fiasco and I couldn't ruin his gesture by complaining at the time. I am definitely not the complaining type but this food, the service, the so-called experience was a non-event, sadly.
