    Love Ingram Wynd but 5pm deal not as good as usual!

    Love Ingram Wynd, the food is always lovely however it was disappointing this time that when our main courses arrived there were no vegetables on the plate. One of our party then said they had noticed side orders on the menu at £3.50 each but I don't remember ever having to order veg separate on set menu before. Surely it wouldn't be a great hardship to restaurant to include a small amount on plate.

    Really Dissapointing

    No atmosphere at all as you walk in. Tables are too close together. We were shown to our table then nothing for some minutes. We were offered popadoms etc and had to chase these! Starters took an age to arrive and were very average. Main course was so disappointing. You could make it better at home. The service was non existent. We asked for the bill twice with waits in between. We were then told to wait for the card machine which took more time. If I wasn’t paying by card I would have left the cash and walked out. No tip left and won’t be back.
