Scarygodmother's review of Shearings Holidays

★★★☆☆

“Portion control gone too far”

Written on: 23/04/2019 by Scarygodmother (1 review written)

Unsatisfactory at best. As a regular and previously loyal customer I deplore this drop in standards of the evening meals in particular and feel Shearings is in danger of antagonising it's customers.
The staff are helpful and polite. Breakfast is fine if a little understaffed. Unfortunately the evening meals are poor. Glutinous powdered soup, overcooked vegetables in tiny portions. Reminded me of school dinners. I asked for the 'succulent' ahem! pork without gravy and plain boiled potatoes. Almost 30% of the meat was fat. Once removed I was left with a piece of meat smaller than my fork! I have to give hours of notice at reception for 'special requests'. Methinks Shearings may be in danger of taking portion control a little too far.
