6/10 Good

Not Bad, but not good.Shockingly bad evening meal.
So, parking was a little confusing, there could be better sign posting. My check in was Ok and carried out quickly by a helpful chap. getting to the room was fine and once in the room was adequate as well. The TV worked well, the temperature was OK and the Bathroom clean and functional. Things are a little dated and old fashioned but otherwise acceptable. My evening meal was deeply disappointing. In fact, I was shocked at what the Kingsley considers quality food. To begin with my main course, which was duck on lentils was rendered quite unpleasant by poor seasoning and a mismatch of flavours. The lentils were plentiful, but the sweet source was overpowering. I did not enjoy the dish at all. I hoped it could not get worse, but it did. OI ordered the simplest of dishes; something one might make at school in fact. I ordered an orange Posset. What arrived would have made Angel Delight blush. The insipid bowl of mush, overly sweetened and then to add insult to injury dressed with tinned (Yes, seriously) tinned mandarin segments and three bits of snapped meringue. Basically awful. When I tried it, the space left by my spoon filled with a pale-yellow liquid and was most oof putting. Despite only taking one mouthful, this hideous mess appeared on my bill and the fact that the food returned to the kitchen untouched went uncommented on! For the first time in my meory I left a restuarant hungry! Breakfast was ok, but I was keen to leave. I wont return to the Kingsley .
