After what appeared to be a pretty good meal, everything looking fabulous and tasted good too, our entire party of 4 ended up with food poisoning over the weekend. We were aware of friends in laws dining on the same date but at very different times (we dined at 12.30 and left shortly after the others arrived around 2pm) and when we contacted them, we found 10 diners out of 10 had been ill, some severely, over the weekend. Environmental Health noted the only common factor between us all was the amuse bouche (goose ballotine), yet with no hard evidence (illness occurring over the weekend doesn't allow for samples going to the GP!), the final comments were that other than the common risk factor of eating at Thackerays, they could find no other link (surely that says it all?).
The worst part?? We have been treated shabbily since this event and have not once received an apology from the restaurant. Even worse, the owner has lied to newspapers that we all dined together in a confined space – oh dear me!
Will never be returning there and extremely glad that I had not purchased their Groupon offer for a 7 course tasting menu as that would have been wasted money!
