Now the children have grown up, my wife and I are starting to explore 'the outside world's a bit more.
As a change from our more usual type of dining location, pubs, carverys, Harvester's etc, I decided to try something new, and booked a surprise meal out for us at the Lock Bar and Kitchen restaurant, at the Runnymede Hotel.
Pulled into the car park and it was full of Mercs, Porsches, etc so started to wonder if this was such a wide choice.
As soon as we walked in we were met with a warm and friendly greeting, and shown to our reserved table. Lots of people dining, that looked a lot more used to this kind of setting, so the feelings of a little out of place surfaced again.
Service though was excellent. Very polite, felt like we were guests just the same as any other. The menu, very good. Not over cluttered, just something that would suit most people's taste buds. Food was presented very well and tasted as good as it looked. What really made a difference was that we were not constantly interrupted by someone asking if everything was okay with the food, and the fact that in spite of the restaurant being busy, we did not feel that we had to talk above everyone else, just to be heard. A very enjoyable experience.
Thank you for looking after us. Looking forward to returning.
