Having dined at The Glasshouse when it first opened slightly over 10 years ago and twice since then, last night's birthday dinner was a huge disappointment. The only thing going for this all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant is the relatively reasonable fixed price for the meal. We felt like we were on a cruise ship – treated like cattle, noisy, tables at close quarters and worse, lukewarm food, stale bread, the odd fly buzzing over the tapas, torn and worn upholstery and musak of the worst kind. The food has been pared down and dumbed down with the Seafood section and Dessert sections suffering most since our last visit. The chef makes a great theatrical stir-fry with a flaming flourish, but frankly I can do that at home. A gluttons paradise but I prefer quality to quantity. This restaurant needs a serious re-think.
