We took our youngsters to show off our favourite local restaurant. As ever the staff were friendly and welcoming and the waitress quickly took our drinks order and then the food order. The food arrived quickly. The garlic king prawns were declared by the son in law to be the best he'd ever had. My wife had the garlic and cheese mushrooms and was delighted by her choice as was our daughter who had the prawn cocktail. I had the green lipped mussels (my favourite) and they were perfect. The special curry, the chicken supreme, the hake and the fillet steak were all excellent with the food piping hot and the vegetables perfectly cooked. The portions were more than large enough and I had to admit defeat and left some of the vegetables. The mushroom sauce supplied with the chicken supreme was delicious and there was an extra sauce boat of it. I have to confess that I ate all of it. Mind you, we were all so full that we couldn't manage a dessert!
It is clear that the manageress, Hollie, has a real enthusiasm and that showed in her food. I recently visited Ballards at the Royal Albion Hotel and subsequently left a scathing review on Tripadvisor. The chef at Ballards would, I am sure, benefit from a visit to the Captain Digby.
