    Really enjoyed it, we had a bit of trouble with the voucher which seems par for the course but not the fault of the staff or BI

    A bit more cutlery ready on the table would have been convenient. We had to use the same knife that we used for the pizza for spreading the jam and clotted cream on the scones. As only one pot of jam and one pot of clotted cream was supplied between the two, we had to share it. There was no spoon supplied for the pudding pots. We had to use the same spoons we used to stir sugar in the tea and it was a very tiny one. The tea was very, very light. At least two tea bags per pot of tea would have been better.

    We have always enjoyed our visits to The Meridian Bella Italia but on this occasion there was one thing that I will mention ( I did mention it to one of your staff at the time) I had the Pollo Funghi from the Italian Specialities . In the description of the meal it said there would be roast potatoes, The chicken was on a bed of cut up new potatoes ,the meal was quite nice but not as it is described in the menu.
