What were the worst value meals you've ever eaten out? I recently had a poor experience at a "gastro-pub" in Yorkshire on Mother's Day. Portions were minuscule, with the roast beef small enough to hide beneath a Yorkshire pud, and as for the" tarte tatin", "fritter containing one slice of apple " would be too generous a description. Another diner's dessert, three melon balls of ice cream, was insipidly tasteless like frozen sweetened milk. My lamb shank was permeated by an unpleasant burnt cabbage taste of the savoy lurking in the dollop of bubble and squeak that came with it . Even vegetables came in miserly portions, with ONE broccoli floret per portion. I left hungry after paying £130+ for six people, three of whom did not eat desserts. I don't mind small portions if the food is top-notch, but this wasn't - just pretentious, mediocre stuff planned by some invisible bean-counter who goes elsewhere for better value.
