I was told at the time of booking that we had to choose the Xmas set menu which we chose but on the night tables around us were eating from the other menu. We found the turkey dinner to be so salty, there wasn't enough veg on the plate so I asked for more veg, didn't realise they would charge an extra £4.95!!! Also for 2 bottles of prosecco it was £55, this is ridiculous. So total bill was £210! Very steep. It was a nice night but disappointed in the food.

Not as good as our previous visit. Had to wait approx 20 minutes for our drinks order to be taken and at that time it was not that busy. Chose the xmas meal, asked the girl if there was any veg served with the main dish, who said she will go and check, never came back to me to confirm. Meal arrived (with no veg) I requested veg, by the time that arrived, meal was just about warm and got the bill and noticed I had been charged £3.95 for veg dish. I have never heard of an xmas meal not being served without veg. We are frequent visitors to your establishments, Chester, Preston and Lytham, but this visit left me overall disappointed.

Had to ask for tap water three times and one of the mains took a lot longer than the others to come. Also, the music was too loud as we had to shout to speak to each other. Aesthetically pleasing and nice food but not worth the money.

The only slight negative was the long wait, between arriving and waiting to order, and waiting for the dessert menu/then dessert. Service was just a little slow. Overwise a great evening.

I booked a table to bring my friend who is vegan to the restaurant. Unfortunately there ended up only being one vegan option for my friend to have as others were not available. Also the mousaka was also not available! So, not a great start to for either of us to have something we wanted. Finally there was no non dairy milk for my vegan friend to have a cup of tea! Thankfully one of the staff went and bought some from a local shop. This was not an ideal experience for my vegan friend. However the staff were great and very helpful.

Hello Frank, Thank you for leaving a review, we appreciate all comments as it can only help us improve in the future. I am sorry to hear that at the time of your visit there were a couple of items off the menu. All of our menu items are fresh and quite labour intensive so takes a considerable time to make. We don't keep a non dairy option as it is rarely ordered so becomes wastage and I am glad to hear that one of my colleagues went the extra mile to provide this for you though. I hope you decide to dine with us again in the near future as it isn't often we have items off our menu not available. We do have a lovely Christmas menu available up until Christmas eve if you decided to visit during the festive season. Many thanks, Mark General Manager
