I went on this offer last week. Despite having a debate (not an argument) with herself about the relative merits of buying the voucher in the first place, we both really enjoyed it. They seem to have unstiffened considerably from the last time I was there, yonks ago. Nice friendly greeting. Lovely table in the mezzanine. The amuse bouche was announced to us as a "snack", which made me wonder were they dumbing things down for the great unwashed voucher holders and whether I should be insulted. I decided I preferred the word snack and allowed it.
I'm not sure the base ingredients justified the price tag of €75 for a three courser, but everything was beautifully cooked and presented and there was plenty of interesting little details. Service was impeccable and friendly, though maybe a few too many different faces turned up at the table. Highlights of the evening were the sommelier attemping to allow an enthusiastic amateur a graceful draw in a wine knowledge power struggle at a nearby table, and the Pimm's sorbet which didn't even attempt to be a palate cleanser, just another tasty course.
The bill incluing voucher came in at €160, including pre dinner drinks and a bottle and glass of wine, which was excellent value. It would have been €75 more without the voucher, which would be questionable value midweek. I'll snap up a couple of vouchers if he runs the promotion again, but I'd find it hard to justify full price.
Pity he couldn't just run the promo himself through the website if he's slack midweek, as I'd imagine he would have made a satisfactory few quid on us if he got all the money we paid. Having to pass over money to Menupages might make it less worthwhile to run again.
