Stanhope Bar & Restaurant
This meal was a disaster. We were given a laminated menu with a choice of three starters, three main courses and three desserts. The "extensive wine menu" was hand written on a folded piece of photocopied A4. The 3 of us dined in an empty room which was cold and lifeless. Our 70's style starters; one Parma ham & melon and a Prawn cocktail were served with limp lettuce. The main course - well school dinners were better cooked and served. I went for the more exotic of the three; the chicken and stir fried veg in chili sauce. What I got was a dry chicked breast with a handful of Birds Eye style chunky veg dribbled with chili sauce and more limp lettuce. The sea bass was inedible and even the coffee was awful. Nothing like the write up!
