Excellent staff , food lovely
Lovely evening in the Oriel, as always. The food was delicious and the staff were great. thank you.
Always a pleasure
We felt the turkey and beef are not very fresh. If it was carvery it would be fresher. I understand due to covid business is quiet and it's hard to meet the same standards as usual.
Service non existent. Left without making a purchase. No carvery available despite being advertised on website.
I fully appreciate that staff were busy but it does not excuse rudeness to customers. I placed a drink order with a staff member, waited 15minutes. When I didn't receive my order, I said "excuse me, could I get those drinks" to which the server said "alright like" and rolled her eyes. I said nothing further. But was not happy with this. Received drinks order 7minutes after this Food was fine, atmosphere was good. Appalled by the attitude.
Were waiting about 15 mins for menues and considering time limits this should not happen. Asked for a glass of ice 3 times before we finally got it. My main was barely warm. One main never came out and eventually we had to go and ask for it. Very disappointed.
Food good, service good. Due to current climate no great atmosphere but as expected
Not overcrowded. Great service. Lovely food
This is my second time eating at the bar and bistro and to be honest I don't think the food is checked before it's sent out. We ordered chicken wings to share and they were so salty we couldn't eat them. Other than that the sweet potato fries were really nice and the Cosmopolitan cocktail was really good too. I would recommend the food is checked before being sent out.
After booking 3 tables, providing all contact information and abiding by covid regulations I feel we were treated very poorly. The staff very lovely when we 1st arrive but as soon as the manager came the atmosphere changed. There was a big deal made about getting drinks(even though we paid the tabs before they got too big) we were ignored and left with glasses pile up on the tables. The manager didn’t even have the decency to ask us to leave(for no reason) we weren’t loud, drinking shots or disturbing anyone else. We kept to ourselves down the back and we stuck to 3 tables of 6. We did the best we could but to be treated like that was a disgrace. I told a member of staff that we were there for food and drinks after a funeral, not one bit of remorse was shown. The food orders weren’t right. We were double charged for drinks but we still left without any trouble. We are all locals and we will not be recommending the Oriel for an occasion.
Service was brilliant all staff so friendly , especially bar manager , great choice on menu ,food was delicious
Felt social distancing could have been better. A couple were sat right behind our table as we finished dessert. The 2 meter distance wasn't observed so we had to leave as we felt very uncomfortable.
This was a wonderful experience couldn't recommend a better place thanks very much to all lovely staff we will be back
Good food, prompt service
