Default Bottled lager half great half not

Hi can anyone help before I went on holiday two weeks ago I bottled my very first batch of lager, half of the bottles I left in the room I use for my brewing the rest I put in the fridge. When I returned from hols the bottles in the fridge were flat and not nice, tried putting a couple of bottles from the room in the fridge for a couple of hours they were great carbonated and tasted great. Are the bottles I put in the fridge in the first place ruined completely.

Many thanks in advance

You needed to leave the bottles in the fridge out. The yeast went dormant and couldn't finish carbonating. Pull them all out and give them a few weeks.

Oh, and they're not ruined at all. They will be just fine.
