Food was tasty, well presented and good size portions. Price was comparable to other local eating places. Service could be improved. Cutlery was forgotten for starters. A glass was dropped and broken by a staff member on the next table and despite pointing out large pieces of glass left on the floor. Also when asked a member of staff behind the bar about Christmas menus, he stated that he didn’t know anything about it. We did then see some printed menus on our way out.

Staff were very courteous and friendly. Was unhappy with the table we had been given but this was sorted to my satisfaction very quickly. Food was good but a bit on the expensive side. Not enough bar staff considering it was a Saturday night.

The restaurant was very busy and we had to wait 45 minutes for our booked table. The staff were most attentive and apologetic and we had a lovely time thanks.

I’ve only ever heard good things about Junction 28 and the food did not disappoint, the service however was poor. On our way to be seated it was noticeable that the majority of the staff felt as though they were at a social gathering rather than being at work, Tom who was hosting quickly asked them to get to work and apologised to us for having to speak to them whilst seating us. Throughout the night things just seemed to get worse, I had a spillage and all staff seemed to ignore it, when I finally got the attention of the waitress I was told I would get another napkin which never came. I had ordered the special Gin Fizz which was two for £11, I asked for that to be brought later on in the evening but we were never asked if we wanted another drink even when our glasses had been empty for quite a while, when I finally got the waiters attention he ended up bringing me the wrong drink, when speaking with the server bringing our desserts he just said ‘I’m not sure, I’ll get someone else’ finally another waitress came to us and said ‘they are making you another one however it’s really busy on the bar so expect a long delay’ It was truly bizarre, in the time it took to go to the bar and ask and come and tell me about the delay, the drink could have been made and brought to me. There was no specific waiter looking after our table as there must have been about 7 people who came to our table on the night, one waitress finally came to ask if we were ready to order dessert, when we replied yes she left the table without explanation and finally came back with a notepad, surely all staff should be carrying one? After finishing, nobody came to us. It was the first time in a restaurant that I’ve had to get up and find someone to bring the bill, we had to go to the bar and get it! As expected both drinks were on the bill and we had to have this taken off. It’s such a shame as the food was incredible but the service was a real let down. It’s clear that the staff need to be trained as their awkwardness made us feel very uncomfortable on the night. The chefs should be very proud as the food was outstanding, it’s a shame your serving staff are not up to the same standard.

A bit rowdy but not been on a Saturday evening before and there were two big groups in celebrating so not a deal-breaker but would have preferred it quieter. Great food and decent portions.

Very friendly restaurant offering excellent service and an interesting set lunch menu offer giving a very good range of choice over three courses and very inexpensively. A la Carte looked equally promising and would certainly be happy to choose an evening meal from it! Coming from London to meet relatives, it's an excellent location to meet up as it's so close to the M4. Very quiet Saturday lunchtime when we went, hence the 4* for atmosphere but it certainly didn't spoil our enjoyment. We will return!

I do enjoy our time at the restaurant but this is the first time I must say I found it below par. We and the table opposite us needed to ask for our veg after 5 mins of waiting. Plus the fact the waiter spilt my drink and after replacing the drink, did not wipe away the spilt drink.
