Wow, what a shame. We came here to celebrate being married for 2 months (it's as good an excuse as any!) expecting amazing things, but alas was far from it. 

Although set in amazing grounds and with an arranged car to pick us up / take us back, we should have realised we were in for a tough time when it was almost empty on a Friday night. The food is terrible - especially when considering the kind of money charged: Le Coq D'or just cannot cook a steak (sent back twice, offered to speak to chef in French (turns out he's Thai), offered to cook ourselves, then subsequently cancelled) -- and we all know what happens if you mess up Victoria's steaky!

Also, the Grand Marnier souffle was almost a runny scrambled egg and they forgot half our aperitif order. After an incredibly disappointing experience, I expected a goodwill gesture money-off on the bill - alas the only item subtracted was the CANCELLED steak. 

Overall experience: awful. HOWEVER, they did serve me a fantastic cheese souffle for a starter, so at least they got something right! 

And. Rant. Is. Now. Over! :-)
