Ascots Restaurant & Bar

Beautiful staircase, lovely old fashioned entry - but it went a bit down hill from there. No record of my reservation - even though I had called inthe afternoon. The furniture had been moved around in order to get more tables in, and then arranged around it which felt like a school hall? Maitre de and staff seemed distracted and disorganised. Menu choice was good although not inspired, but staff firstly got our order wrong, and then seemed unable despite two attempts to produce a medium rare steak (and I am not that fussy!). I dont khow this place has achieve two michilin stars? Overall, atmosphere hotel-like- we were opposite the morning "buffet bar", service was terrible and staff, although pleasant seemed stressed, disorganised and had to be prompted at every level, for a fourty pound menu - not a worthy investment. Disappointing.
