Hi all,
I have posted a similar message before but it was lost when the forum site was relaunched after being hacked.
Has anyone been to the Wherry Hotel since the major refurb?.  Can you still moor outside? if so what are the mooring charges? and have the mooring been improved?.  Any additional info would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards
Alan...

Hello Alan,

We moored at Oulton Broad Yacht station prior to the reopening, seemed a lot of work was going on guys all over the place but that is the norm on the last couple of days before opening. I have seen pictures of the lounge and bar area's I must say it is not my idea of a new venture, seems very old fashioned in place but the servery and kitchen pictures looked outstanding and the promotion shots of the food looked very good.

I would also be interested in what forum members have to say re the quality of the food and service.

Regards
Alan

the major improvement are the loos in the bar area, now more than one person can get in at a time.

If you go for the carvery the meat portions are very small, but the veggies are always cooked perfectly, and very fresh.

The menu hasn't really changed that much, pictures of the food so you can point at the item, if you dont know what a burger looks like.

I thought the prices were high, but all the dishes are very well presented.

Ummm, that should please some folk. George Michael springs to mind for some obscure reason!



Jenny Morgan,

Mark had work near Oulton Broad last night, I went along for the ride, and a chance to be near the water!

Not knowing where to eat, we chose The Wherry Hotel, (although as it looks quite grand and imposing, I sent Mark in to check that it wasn't too posh and expensive first!)

We've never been there before, so couldn't say if it has improved or not. We found it very clean and comfortable, it was pretty busy for a Tuesday night, but we were able to choose our own table, which was great as we chose one where we could sit and look out over the water, even though it was dark.

Service was quick and friendly. There was a very nice atmosphere, and we didn't feel hurried, lots of people were sitting at their tables chatting, it was clear that nobody was being pushed out of the door once their meal was eaten.

After looking at the menu, which had plenty of choices for all pockets, including a decently priced lunchtime "Light Bites" menu,  we chose the carvery, and even though we were late, 8.40pm(the carvery stops at 9.00) the meat carved straight from the joint was tender and moist and there was still plenty of choice in the veg department, it wasn't dried up as some can be so close to the end of serving either.

We didn't think the price was bad at all, 2 carveries and 2 drinks for £18.00.  

We asked about the mooring, and were told the price of £10 and the £5 voucher towards your meal, so we are planning a stop here on our holiday afloat, which starts on the 6th October.     Smile

I've got to second that, we treated ourselves to a carvery when we were down and enjoyed it very much, as you say the veg were still fresh and the servings were ample and I enjopy my food so it gets a thumbs up from me.

regards

Kind Regards
