We had a lovely lunch, and I’m sorry one of my friends had a small turn. Your staff was extremely helpful in making her comfortable. Most of my friends were from across the bridge,and were suitable impressed!! Our waitress was also very good. Many thanks, Sue Smith.

Well where to start. I booked on line and when i arrived there was no details. The German or France person attitude was very disappointing and the point that i was going to make a complaint. We moved tables and there was a drink still there with she cleared and said would be back as there was only 2 of us and we where starting with drinks ...this took 20 for her to return. This was at 7 and there where not alot of people. In that 20mins she served 2 to 3 tables. My partner even went up to the bar to order wsd was told that someone will be there soon ...not. hence why she went up . Once the your staff member returned theres was no apology for the delay which i was not impressed . I then took her to task about The delay. Note have a look at your cctv and make your own judgment.... we sat at tablet 6. Thought the night i also noticed her asking people how there meal was at no point did see come to us. Frankly which i could do infront of my partner i was going to speak to the manager and now that you have sent this . Im am very very unimpressed with this staff member she needs to spoken to I suggest you contact me to make amends

The Greek salad 🥗 was delicious 😋 Waitress was really nice and apologetic as there was no salmon, so we had to have chicken...and there was no Corona (as it’s a DB establishment) the Sols were all out and there was very limited Tiger Dry’s. So I guess the drinks hadn’t been restocked from the weekend. Apart from that we’re coming back 🙌🏼

Hi Johnathon, thanks for the feedback. Yep - we were behind in ordering during the busy period so there were a couple days where we were running low or out of stock. We're glad that despite that, you still enjoyed your visit. See you again soon. Cheers
