                                                      We took our Granddaughter for breakfast who is a vegetarian/pescatarian. There was plenty of choice for her and us. She was very impressed . The dining area was very comfortable with lovely views of the golf course and just enough background music for atmosphere. All round a very enjoyable, pleasant breakfast.

                                                      This is the second time we have had Sunday lunch at Bassett Downs. The lunch was very nice. We had to ask for another cauliflower cheese as the first one was black/burnt on the top. Our only other criticism was that the food wasn’t very hot. One of our party is a very slow eater and she left most of her veg as by the time she got to eat it it was cold. The food needs to be hotter when served.
