I did feel a bit confused with the bottomless food which was a choice of one of the 5 rather than bottomless but the drinks were excellent for the value

Disappointing evening, waitress was very friendly but the service was extremely slow. The drinks were left too long on bar so had gone flat.

Well the service was amazing, all staff were very friendly but there wasn’t an atmosphere as we was placed on a table right at the back with no music and the lights kept flickering, thought I was gonna have an epileptic fit. Also the worst thing to happen... I had a long strand of hair in my food!! Which is vile, I hadn’t even had one bite and it was all wrapped around the green leaf stalk. Staff were good and got me a new one straight away and gave me two free shots but to be honest that was rather disgusting so I think I should of had more than two little shots for an apology.

Good food and drink, service could be a bit quicker especially when your booking is only for a set amount of time

We were very disappointed with our bottomless brunch. We were waiting over half an hour for a drink and had to go down and let them know before we were served. We pre ordered our food before we arrived as they advised because it was busy but an hour in they came to take our order and we said we pre ordered, a little later they came over and said they didn’t have our order so we ended up being served our food at 3:30 when our booking finished at 4. Overall we had about 4 rounds of drinks one of which I’m sure was just fruit juice. This is not what you expect from a bottomless brunch as we definitely did not feel like we got our money worth. The food was average at best. I feel like because we were sat upstairs we were not thought about at all.

You can only order one jug of cocktail or one glass of Prosecco. We had to wait 45 minutes for a drink and even then we had to call a staff member over. Once complaining about the waiting time a staff member brought us over a shot and 2 jugs which was really good of him but that took 15 minutes to get to us. The tables opposite us ended up in a massive argument for being loud and got kicked out. Food was ok and the day was ok. But overall it wasn’t worth £35

We arrived at 2pm and We didn’t get our food until 3.50pm, our reservation was meant to end at 4pm. No management apologised for this. When the food came out it was severely dry and the steak wrap did not come with caramelised onions at stated. We were given a free round of drinks but I feel that as this was booked in advance you should have been better prepared

Service was awful. Waited for drinks for ages. Only had an hour and a half slot time and only managed to have 3 drinks because they were so slow

We was told by Hannah the events host we would be sat by the DJ in a booth of 6 as this was the only reason we wanted to book this venue as it was a birthday. We was sat in the back corner booth where you couldn't of possibly been any further away if you fried. The waitress offered us free shots to day sorry but I would of prefered the seat we were promised. You shouldn't offer this service if you can't keep to it.

When we ordered the food I was surprised to see my fish meal arrive wrapped in tinfoil. I have had fish in many restaurants and never had it arrive in tinfoil with a separate small bowl of new potatoes on a plate before. The staff kept arriving with each drink asking for us to pay and were unaware that we were eating and would pay at the end. When we paid the bill we had to query why our deposit was not taken off of the final bill which the staff said they were unaware of us paying a deposit.i had to show proof of my e mails to the staff. I saw three different groups raise the same query as to why their deposit was not taken Off of the final bill
