I live in Maida Vale and there is no shortage of good places to eat. Why oh why then, does the Warrington feel it can get away with serving reheated rubbish at inflated prices? I ordered, and I quote, "Pork Loin Crackling". When it arrived, there was some thin, damp grey stuff that looked like ham and not an ounce of crackling in sight. I asked the waitress, who didn't understand what I was talking about. The manager, when she arrived, was equally bemused: she had no idea what crackling was. When I explained, she went away and brought me a bowl of pork scratchings. Pork scratchings! Out of a packet! I explained again what crackling is and she replied, "Oh, we never cook pork that way."
"Why, then, is it listed on your menu?" I asked.
"Maybe it's a spelling mistake," she retorted.
A spelling mistake? Perhaps they meant to write, "Port Loin however-the-heck-we-want-to-cook-it-because-we-have-no-respect-for-our-customers."
The rest of the evening was spent with no table service because we'd clearly offended the staff. Good. We won't be bothering them again.
