no disrespect to the st clair but strange for a chef with mich stars to work in a little hotel

is it not the establishment which gets the michelin stars? maybe not, but I used to work in a hotel which had michelin stars and the chef changed and they still kept them, then they had a visit by the michelin folk or whoever does inspections and nearly lost the stars due to the poor quality in service and knowledge and stuff, which didn't really have anything to do with the chef as such, well not his cooking skills anyway.

We went twice to the st clair during our visit last week, having enjoyed the food there very much last September.
On both occasions although the food was okay, it was not a patch on what we had last year.
The service was very good however, shame to see it let down by decidedly average food.

Sorry, but ,.. sausage casserole,.. beef olives,.. floury potatoes, soggy veg. chicken stir fry, ..hardly exciting cuisine.!:(

It's just..... Pub grub! ..used to be better,..can't fault the staff who are fantastic,friendly and efficient!

Far superior food last year, without a doubt!
