Chilton Country Club
The member’s reactions to this meal were mixed. Good, bad and indifferent.
Those choosing the prawn cocktail and the belly pork were well pleased with their meals.
My slow cooked shoulder of beef had been re-heated probably in a microwave and was very dry. The Royal George at Shotton, serve a similar dish and this was no comparison.
The chips looked anaemic and tasted no better. The boiled potatoes were only half cooked and most went back to the kitchen. The other rather boring vegetables were “al dente” (meaning undercooked) but these pleased some people.
Considering the meals were pre-ordered the service for starters was slow. They were one soup short which took a further 10 minutes to arrive.
The main course was served on cold plates and by the time the vegetables arrived the meat was barely warm.
Some members, like myself, had been here in the past when you were lucky to get a table at lunchtime even in midweek.
It was disappointing to see there were only six other diners apart from our group.
Unfortunately I am due to go back next Tuesday with another group for an evening meal. I can only hope it is a different chef!!!!
