I have come away from our pub meal to celebrate OH's birthday meal feeling quite disgruntled and I honestly don't know whether, given other people's major problems, I am being totally stupid and over reacting.
We arrived at 20 to 7 and put our order through at 7.15p.m. 10 of us all together four children, one 18 month old who wasn't eating and 6 adults. Some had a small starter which we received at about 10 to 8 and then we waited until 8.45p.m. For the main course to appear!
Most had the special which was duck but I chose cauliflower cheese which I have had in this pub several times and which had always proved sizeable and delicious. Most of the young children were too tired to eat and their parents had to gulp their meals down quickly so that the children could get to bed. My cauliflower cheese was half the normal size and very basic? My daughter who had the same complained and our plates were taken away and returned quickly, the cauliflower cheese merely being scooped into bigger bowls - they must have thought us stupid.
This does sound stupid because my husband had a good meal and so did the duck eaters but to me a really lovely family party was totally ruined because the children were exhausted. Also it cost over £150 for the priviledge.
Won't eat here again but AIBU?
