The Hinds Head, Bray - report

Went to The Hinds Head for lunch today and thought I'd share. The food was okay, but not great, and as it is owned by Heston Blumenthal I expected more - I know it's a pub but I was thinking it would be really good pub food....

Entree was good, but not exciting (not that I expected it to be) - a red pepper tart with goats cheese and salad. For my main I ordered the Balmoral Venison Cheese Burger £11.95 and triple cooked chips $4.50. I didn't rate the chips - they were dry and didn't seem to stay warm the way other chips do. The burger patty wasn't venison mince as I expected, the only thing I could liken it to would be heavily processed meat - like spam or something, it was dense and too dry and I didn't finish it.

Didn't bother with puddings, service was fine (although I ordered a drink and never got it), although they need to play music in there - the only noise was all the staff scuttling about.

With a taxi to and from Windsor, it made for a relatively expensive lunch, and I wouldn't recommend others to make the effort - if you're nearby perhaps, but otherwise, don't bother.
