Northumberland Reports

Warden, Northumberland

Review of Warden by J Walker on August 22nd, 2010
Nice place, shame about the food at the boatside inn. Sunday lunch 22/08/2010 Tried to book for lunch.... only 3pm available ok that will do. Arrived at 2.45 and were seated immediately. Ordered 7 meals by 3.05pm waited and waited for food. 4.05 pm food came...Now hear this.... 1. Salmon with hollandaise sauce... Swimming in sauce because the piece of salmon was so small and very cold... just out of a fridge or defrosted from freezer perhaps? 2. Roast turkey dinner.. Turkey deemed just ok but swimming in thick gravy... oooh not acceptable. 3. Roast lamb... meat fine even though the portion was small. 4. Roast leg of pork. As far as iI am aware leg of pork does not present in the form of pork chops or thick cut meat. Flavour ok. 5&6 Two roast beef dinners.... or was it roast leather? The meat was cut the wrong way and so could not be cut with a general table knife. Tough or what? Beware of the teeth! 7. Risotto.... like a savoury rice pudding. Solid enough to stand a spoon up in. Tasted of dish water. Now for the vegetables.... Still ice cristals in the swede. Another bowl brought ... this had been heated beyond redemption in a microwave. All other vegetables were over cooked and watery. Mashed potato... was this prepared last week? Roast potatoes ... again microwave warm up. And who makes yorkshire puddings the texture of cardboard? All in all, this was not an experience I would want to repeat.
