The Garden Brasserie is situated in the Orsett Hall Hotel.
As the Hotel, the Brasserie pretends to be upscale, but as soon as you walk in you start doubting yourself. Don't, you're right.
I ate here, beacause I only stayed 1 night in the Hotel and it was already late.
The decor is old fashioned and complety missing the mark.
When you receive the menu, you know you made a wrong choice. It Looks cheap like a tourist trap on the beaches of Spain.
When you open it, you will find quite a good selection of starters and main courses with impressive names that are increasing the anticipation after you were so dissapointed. Then they get served.......
I only ordered a main course and was utterly disspaointed. Super small portions for a ridicculous high price. You get away with this if you cook Michelin star level and it is a fully intergrated dish.
You know where this is going, it was not.
It was just plane, no flavor and nothing special. The average pub around the corner will be better.
I ordered dessert as I had to eat something. Although it looked very impressive and chique, the flavor was again not there. Another dissapointment.
Combined with a poor wine it was just a poor sad dinner that just filled my stomac.
Service was poor, I continously had the feeling it was all run by first year students with no supervision.
For the pretentious place it tries to be it has a lot of home work to do.
I will not return, too expensive, very poor cooking and no atmosphere. I recommend strongly to go somewhere else.
