Staff were all lovely but you needed more working. The wait for service, food to come and plates to be cleared was far too long. We ordered dessert and were warned the table was booked in 45 mins. If the service hadn't been so slow, we would have already left. We waited and waited and ended up cancelling the desserts.

We had to ask twice for somebody to take our order after sitting there for 20minutes, and when our roast dinners came out we ate what was on our plate before they brought out the cauliflower cheese and Yorkshire puds 10minutes after they brought our plates out. Not an enjoyable meal.

Very disappointed as we were recommended the Sunday roast beef by a good friend. Table was booked for 1.45 and we waited 1 hour for our meal. There were 2 large groups before us but this should not have made our wait this long. Plates were cold and the food was luke warm. Beef was very tough and hard to cut with blunt knives . Danielle who served us was very apologetic and a credit to the establishment. however we will not hurry back again

We went for the bottomless brunch which was lovely. I could tell the staff were very busy and there probably weren’t enough staff to start with so they did a good job

Food delicious and plentiful and very good service especially as they were busy. Only issue was it was very noisy in there, live music added to this and also a rowdy group a few tables away from us. Couldn’t hold a conversation in there and left as soon as had finished dinner just because of the noise levels

Roast was disappointing - cold. Wings were disappointing and overcooked - so very small Veggie roast had no veg apart from green garnish New waitress was very very awkward and made us feel uncomfortable. Wouldn’t hurry back for food

Made a reservation specifically as was visiting friends and had our dog - the first time my husband was meeting one of my closest friends (we’ve been in the US for the past 9 years). Specifically said we would be bringing our dog, was told that was fine. When we got there the bouncer immediately said no dogs after 7PM. For some reason he also kept putting his hands on me (I’m a short woman, not exactly a threat) and I was extremely uncomfortable. I asked to speak with the hostess who said the dog was fine. No said the gatekeeper/bouncer. More hands on me trying to explain how I need to understand their/his perspective. The manager then came over and said the dog was fine but actually they recommend no dogs after 7PM because of the noise and it’s not good for the dog - I said that now it seemed like he was trying to make me feel like a crappy dog owner so I’d make the decision to leave. No no he said. In the end because we live 4 hours away and I hadn’t seen my close friends in years, my husband said to just have dinner and he would take dog back to the hotel, and stay with her. If it hadn’t been a Friday night over the air show weekend, and if I hadn’t needed to eat (type 1 diabetic who was already crashing), we would have gone somewhere else. A complete let down with no apologies from the manager, no apologies from the bouncer, nothing. The service was slow, the food was ok but nothing special, the only saving grace was spending some time with my girls. I ordered food for my husband to take back to him, the moose burger, and even that was over-cooked. If the dog friendly restaurant is no longer dog friendly after 7PM, this needs to be very clearly stated to someone making reservations. The bouncer needs to learn some boundaries and not feel the need to use his size or hands to intimidate someone. In a situation like this, there should be one apology from someone. Will not be going there or to any other location again.

Booking process was over-complicated but the food was great, we had a table of 11 people and everyone enjoyed it. Music was great too.

The restaurant was far too loud to be able to enjoy food. I literally had to shout across a table for two! The greek salad should be renamed as onion salad! An upgrade on wine glasses would be suggested when charging the prices you do per glass. Staff were very friendly.
