Food and drink was excellent. However we felt we were being pushed into buying shots and cocktails and we ordered some food which didn’t arrive.

Have had lunch here several times over the last month, as it feels safe and is consistently good. Distancing and precautions (masks/track & trace) are adhered to. The table service is swift and attentive and the food is consistently good. Well done everyone, I will be back again soon.

This is the second time we’ve been for lunch during August. Really enjoyed both occasions. It was relatively quiet when we arrived but had obviously been busy prior to that. Food was good- particularly tapas. We will be back.

Went for breakfast and was dead inside with barely any people in there. Waited 20 minutes to be served. Had no orange juice, had no sugar??? Apple juice came out tasting like water so had to change that. Asked for simple breakfasts and waited over an hour with no one letting us know what’s going on. Finally grabbed someone and they said there was backlog issues and will be another 20 mins at best. Got up and left, terrible all over from service to products. Went next door to the kings and was given our food within ten minutes and had a good meal

Made a booking for 9am, turned up just before hand and it was all closed up, bins outside and staff stood in the doorway looking just as frustrated. Took our business elsewhere.

Waitress forgot to tell the chef we had a diary-free order at out table despite her recommending the diary-free food option! However, the chef did remake the order promptly. I hadn't visited McKenzie's for a couple of years. The website looks great, however I was disappointed with the overall quality of food...sub- Weatherspoons! Kids meal didn't come with any vegetables.

I had heard really good things about this place so was looking forward to it but we got there and no one came up to our table to take our order so after 20 minutes I went up to the bar to ask if someone could take our order and they didn’t come for another 10 minutes after that. Then when the waiter finally came, all was well but he forgot to ask us how we wanted our steaks done and answered to that in a very unprofessional manner. We then waited another half an hour and our drinks hadn’t even been brought out so we went to get the waiter’s attention, but he told us there was no steaks. So at this point we had been there an hour and hadn’t even been given our drinks and on top of that we were waiting half an hour for our food which they didn’t even have on offer that evening so we just left.

I was very disappointed with my recent visit, left waiting to order, drinks took an hour! When food arrived shortly after it was wrong and poor. Massively understaffed, Tables not monitored, I felt very bad for the few staff that were working as they could not keep up & received multiple complaints in front of us. Several parties left whilst we waited. I won't be visiting again for some time.
