Looking for somewhere quite for a friends reunion/get together we chose the Chichester hotel restaurant in Rawreth. Charming place, peaceful, relaxing, overlooking a pretty courtyard.
We ordered four sandwiches & 1 baguette. Lovely waitresses explained 'No granary bread' not a problem, chose alternative.
Our order arrived after 45 mins and we were the only five customers present. Not a problem, we were in no hurry.
The bread was medium sliced supermarket variety and very dry with hard crusts giving the impression of microwave defrosting. The margarine was melted onto the bread, the baguette very hard at both ends and the egg mayo filling still hot.
Being 'Terribly British' we put off complaining for a while but halfway into our sandwiches we called a waiter/manager over and expressed out disappointment. He came up with various excuses ie 'No head chef' (really??? To make a sandwich) Eventually after a long negotiations we did not pay for them.
The standard of a simple sandwich was just not conducive to such an upmarket establishment!
So disappointed!! First impressions of the venue promised so much yet delivere so little!
Come on guys, surely you can do better?
The fact that we were the only customers in the restaurant the entire time may reflect the standard of food!
