We're camping at local campsite and having driven past the Braefel a couple of times we decided to give it a shot. Place wasn't that busy, and we were seen to by friendly staff. My wife ordered the £20 fillet (medium well - which should be a crime itself, but she's the boss), I ordered the rib eye rare, my 7 yr old son ordered a cod and chips from the kids menu and my 4 yr old daughter ordered sausage and chips. The food came out within 20 ish mins; tiny steaks, with burned char marks on, well overcooked and sitting with a small helping of dry, miserable chips and half a plant of parsley to fill the rest of the plate up. My son's fish came out, looking like it had been through its 2nd or 3rd time through the fryer and a good drying out under a hot lamp. My daughter's sausage looked like some really cheap, nasty shrivelled up horribleness.
The fillet had been murdered, then killed again and burned for good measure, my rare steak had the same treatment, and also came out dry as old show leather with a similar texture and taste.
The kindly waitress asked how the meal was, and a gave the typical english understated criticism of "it was okay, thank you". She proceeded to ask if we wanted any desserts, to which we declined - and she quietly said "I don't blame you".
We were relieved of circa £50 for the privilege of learning how low standards of food can be - treat it as a learning experience and it may be money well spent - because now we've learnt our lesson, we have nothing to go back there for - its certainly not the food.
