Canteen (RFH)

Went to Canteen at the RFH last week. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Bacon sandwich was surprisingly disappointing. I left my plate with a mound of stringy greyish fat on the side that i had to pull off. Perhaps you have to request crispy... Bread didn't fare much better, i left much of the dry crust. Fruit salad was an intensely over-refrigerated glop of what appeared to be mainly peach or nectarine soaked in orange was hard to tell, everything had exactly the same flavour and pulpy overripe texture. The single quartered strawberry on top was ok. Chips fine, water deliciously cold, good coffee, excellent toilets. Perhaps i was just unlucky this time but honestly i was expecting better.
