The Stockcross was a big disappointment. The building itself looks and feels more like a Travelodge than a luxury resort. Service was well meaning but hopeless – it seemed mainly due to the manager who was constantly micro managing the staff but giving bad direction. The sommelier however seemed to be ignoring the manager and was excellent, we particularly enjoyed the totally blind tasting from a black wine glass.
The food was mixed. Classic dishes were executed perfectly and were absolutely faultless. However, it went wrong when the chef started experimenting as we found his selections to have poor combinations of flavours. A great shame as the effort and skill in preparation was excellent.
