Latest review:

Food was excellent but worth noting that even if you eat in it gets served in the takeaway boxes with wooden cutlery. Quite difficult to eat a roast with a wooden knife and fork! We didn't know this was the case until the food arrived even though we booked on the phone beforehand. We asked to book for a roast on the phone, when we arrived we were shown to the sail and at no point did anyone explain what the roast was or provide us a menu. Lots of people in the group would have ordered a starter so this was missed revenue for the lifeboat! After we asked what the roast was we were told it was gammon for meat eaters and vegetarian sausages for the vegetarian option. When the roasts arrived in the sail one of six was missing so we had to go back into the bar to report it missing. The generator at the back of the sail was quite noisy and smelt of petrol so after lunch we moved into the courtyard for more drinks and dessert. We ordered 4 deserts, 2 sticky toffee puddings, 1 Eton mess and 1 ice cream. Again the ice cream did not arrive with the rest of the desserts so we had to go back into the bar to request it, the second time this happened to is! The food is really great and super size portions, its a shame that simple measures are not in place to ensure great customer service from the start.
