Made online reservation with offer of 50% off food. Bill was presented with no discount given. This was corrected when questioned. But was it a genuine mistake or an attempt to get away without honouring the special offer. These mistakes leave a doubt in customer’s mind

Food was lovely but unfortunately waitress brought main meal advising watch plates a bit warm. She preceeded to hand me over plate whilst holding with 2 towels. To say plate was warm was understatement the plate was hot. My two fingers have both been badly burned. I dropped plate onto table told her my fingers were burned. I asked for ice which I waited for approximately 5 mins! Waitress came back an apologised. I couldnt eat my food. I should have said at time but didnt want to waste my party's dinner. My middle finger in particular is badly burned an now has large blister on

We arrived in New Year’s Day. Mix up at reception no reservation although I had an email confirming. Only 3 in party we were put at a table for 8 ?? I asked again once manager reappeared she finally found booking and re directed us to table for 3 . Our waiter Frazier was very friendly and attentive, we normally enjoy Simpson’s but found there to be no atmosphere and food was average not what we were expecting...

We all felt that the service let the food and atmosphere down. The young gentleman at the beginning of the buffet was helpful and efficient but the coffees were slow to come and were not always what was ordered, the plates from the meal were not cleared away and guests helped to move their own. Not a good service at all.

We have been coming to the gailes for Xmas day dinner for the last 5 years and unfortunately this year was poor. Don’t get me wrong , the food was still very good but the service this year was bad.Watching from where we were sitting the staff looked very harassed and stressed . We had to wait ages for drinks every time we ordered, our little ones starter was forgot about too.Also,we always upgraded our coffee to a latte but this year we were told no can do . We were never asked if everything was ok and never got greeted leaving either. We always look forward to coming every year because the service , atmosphere and food are always great, we were so disappointed this year, sorry. We have booked the hogmany ball this year and are feeling a bit worried now.

We were there for festive afternoon tea. Service was very slow and we constantly had to call waiter when we needed or wanted anything, no one asked st any time if we needed anything else. The two children meals were excellent but the two festive teas were not very good: the drinks didn’t come until we were almost finished eating, the scones were so hard they were inedible, I called waiter about this and he changed them but second ones weren’t much better either. Very disappointed. On previous visits I have rated you much higher xx

Christmas Day menu and food were excellent for kids and adults alike. It was busy and a bit noisy for the older people in the party, however I cannot fault the service. We took quiz games to play between courses and a few tables had done this. The time between courses was perfect and the server Frazer was very attentive. I was worried you overpay for Christmas Day but the food we received was of an excellent standard and I would go there on Christmas Day again. Excellent!

I have sent email regarding how disappointed I was with service. My grand children age 8 and 7 were served EVERY course after adults were finished and I had to keep asking someone to bring their meals. Still waiting on coffee and shortbread!

The only issue was service being a little slow but it was the Saturday before Christmas so it's only to be expected. I was running a little late but it wasn't an issue for them, they accommodated my young step daughter well and it was just a lovely experience.
