I made a booking for 8pm with a friend. We got a drink & seated ourselves but no-one approached us throughout the whole evening. We were chatting for 1 hour, as it had been some time since we'd caught up, then tried to place our food order only to be told the kitchen was shut!! We were astonished & appalled. At no point did any member of staff let us know the kitchen was due to shut at a certain time. We weren't offered any form if substitute so settled for 2 packets of crisps. Extremely disappointing particularly as I'm a single Mum so I don't get out much. This night was due to be a real treat for me. Dawn (07875 429930)

Good food and cocktails, a little slow service and would have stayed a lot longer but the DJ wouldn't take requests

Thank you for a really good night. Myself and the rest of the party really enjoyed ourselves. The service was good and the waitresses left us alone to get our own drinks - which is exactly what we wanted. Would recommend.

Food was nice when it eventually arrived, however a couple of dishes were forgotten. Despite booking a table in advance, the wait for food was very long. A waitress even asked us if we wanted anything whilst we waited, and brought over a basket of crisps (which they then tried to charge us for). Given that we went for breakfast, crisps weren't exactly what we wanted to start the day. They said they'd throw in a free round of drinks to apologise for the delay, but then tried to charge us for those as well. It was all very chaotic and the waitress seemed very inexperienced, and no-one seemed to be taking charge. Quite disappointing, especially as we were there for a family breakfast to celebrate a birthday. The food was nice when it arrived, but it didn't make up for lack of & speed of service

We had a lovely meal and really enjoyed the food and cocktails. However, the service was not good. It was not very busy but staff took a long time to take a drink order and then food order,. They could not answer questions about the drinks (like what was in certain cocktails) and seemed reluctant to find out. Mistakes were made on the first drinks order which took a really long time to come and once we had our food they did not return to the table to check on our food or see if we needed any further drinks for the rest of the evening. Staff were not overly welcoming when we arrived, carrying on with cleaning rather than speaking to us and although there were only about 3 or 4 tables in they seemed to prefer chatting behind the bar or welcoming people they knew. I would be reluctant to go back based on the service, which is a real shame because the quality of food and drink is very good.

Slow service. Waitress forgot our order and then pretended it was busy at bar but we could see there was no one at the bar. She should have been honest and said she forgot. But food is great!

On my reservation I booked for 4 plus a high chair, on arrival we had the tallest table in the restaurant - our baby would have come up to our knees. The restaurant wasn’t busy so I asked to be moved - this was no problem. We had to ask for menus, ask to order, ask for forks etc.. we waited for 40 mins for our food which was not only burnt but cold as well. The singer was fantastic and the atmosphere was nice. A member of staff who was in a checked shirt (sorry didn’t catch his name) was lovely and made a real effort with our daughter. He wasn’t a waiter but him and the singer really saved the day as I would have hated to go somewhere and not tip! If it wasn’t for them it would have been awful! Very disappointed :(

Service was shocking, Food took 45 minutes to arrive, plates weren't removed from table once we had all finished (7 people) No sweet menu was offered, asked for bill at the bar as couldn't find a waiter/waitress and then had to pay at bar for same reason. Won't be coming back anytime soon!

Waited a while to be served, drinks were brought over, 1 was incorrect, the waitress also couldn't tell us which of the other drinks were which (diet coke and a vodka and coke) we genuinely couldn't tell either as they were so watery and I couldn't risk drinking the wrong one as I was driving. The staff were very unhelpful and rude, so we decided not to order food and leave. Very disappointed, but thankful to the girl who apologised and told us to disregard our drinks bill.

We had a great evening. And the half price burger offer on a Thursday night, along with the £3 a glass Prosecco offer makes for happy customers. And the burgers were fab!

Food was poor, and the Taco Tuesday offer was not what I was expecting. Service however, was good. Very friendly, just as shame about the food and price.

Our reserved table for six turned out to be a table for 4 when we got there but thankfully that was quickly resolved. Food was brilliant, cocktails weren't great. The girls serving were friendly but there was no order to who was waiting what table so they often either asked us for orders when they were already taken or missed us. Our drinks took ages to arrive and every time we ordered there was something missing or very delayed compared to the other items. One girl had very long dark hair not tied back and it was hanging all over us, our food, our drinks and our cutlery. Not pleasant or hygienic! A real shame as we all enjoyed our food but feel let down by the amount of mistakes/forgotten drinks.

The service was appalling, exactly the same as the one in Bournemouth. It spoilt the occasion. Not one of the staff seemed to be interested in what was happening at the tables. Had to go to the bar to ask to order then the food took over 40 minutes to arrive. I will not be coming back and I will certainly advise my friends of the lack of service there
