Marle, Heckfield Place Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Food was very good once they got it right but what was more surprising and indeed disappointing was that When the beef was ordered medium rare it came out almost well done and apparently the chef said that this is how medium rare looks and how he would make it. For a Skye gingell reataurant one should not feel the need to google how medium rare beef looks and show the chef, but this is how it felt! Leaves a bad taste... The hotel itself is extremely pretty and you can tell the interior is costly and exquisite - but of a fancier lookin Babington Hiuse. However, the service was poor (apart from the sommelier who was nice and good), their umbrella fell on us twice and all we were told were would we be able to sit in the sun. I hope the general manager from Aman manages to turn up the service levels and when paying £34 for a main course or indeed over £500 for a room one would expect every staff member to go the extra mile. I do hope this will happen as the house itself is wonderful - and the grounds from what we could see - we were not allowed on the grounds as we were not staying in the hotel..."
