28 people went for a surprise birthday party for friends of ours and we were directed to the Pullman carriage at the side of the hotel after we had paid our £32.95 each for the evening meal and entertainment that we had pre ordered through our host.We had two long tables which each contained 14 guests. We had one waitress for the night and two guys who were performing for the mystery night. When the first course was served the two guys served with the waitress and on the far table we were one starter missing. They offered an alternative. On the main course we were again one main meal short, they did eventually bring a meal out but the vegetables had been served seperately and were cold. On the last course we had 3 missing, they would only offer two alternatives and the manager did come out and talk to us but blamed our party for taking the wrong food when bought to the table. I have no complaints to the quality or quantity of the food but the poor waitress was run off her feet and was only able to get all the meals out with the help of the two guys, who were nothing to do with the hotel staffing. The night was a success in all but the service was very poor, this has no reflection on the staff left to deal with the serving of our meals though.
