’Tis Friday, but there was no battered fish on offer in the canteen today. Breaded fish and poached fish, but not battered. Very disappointing. So disappointing that I had to resort to the ‘vegetable and lamb pie’, the filling of which was rather thin. The canteen gravy contributed more lamb flavour than the pie. I think that is all that need be said on this poor offering. They could definitely learn from the Terra Nova in Cardiff.
The chocolate and strawberry sponge pudding was a little more satisfying. Suitably moist, but rather an all or nothing affair when it came to the strawberries — they would have been better chopped rather than whole.
All-in-all a bad day rounded off with a poor culinary offering and England losing their first match in the cricket world cup.
