We were intending to eat at Loch Fyne this week (bearing a handy money off voucher). It was not to be, as they had an hour wait on for food. Boo. But a lesson learned - when Loch Fyne is doing a voucher - book early!
So....we had to think on our feet (quite literally) and decided to pop round the corner to Sinatra's.
Classy decor crowded with photos of the stars, the menu is usually good containing some staples (such as their fish in beer batter with chunky chips and posh mushy peas - it's good and I can recommend it).
From their current menu we went for a fish, ginger and chilli dish and I had a chicken and bacon carbonara pasta. When the plates arrived we were pleased, normally the portion sizes in Sinatra's are small (enough so you don't go away hungry - but so that you can comfortably eat 3 course). Not so last Wednesday! I had a mountain of pasta! It was delicately flavoured and beautifully creamy.
When we came into the restaurant it was busy in the bar but fairly quiet in the restaurant. As we were nearing our pudding we found ourselves surrounded by courting couples holding hands. All together now - Ahhhh. Sweet.
Puddings were ordered and consumed and were exactly what they said on the menu - cheesecake and chocolate cake, nothing bad - just nothing really to add!
Gilded loveliness and today, surprisingly large portions!
