Very loud at times. Difficult to hear people on the other side of the table. Chicken meal was bland and not very creative. All the other meals were highly spoken of. All commented on price of main meal being a pound or two more expensive then what they would think it cost. Spent £100 per couple including 2 bottles of wine and 2 beers. Staff attentive, meals cooked quick and no much time to wait between meals.

Food and Atmosphere were great, the waiter was to quick taking the plates we were using for our starters, to place main course plates down. We hadn’t finished our starter. In addition we paid by cash and the change was assumed as tip without asking if that was the case. We had to ask for the change

We are regular guest to the restaurant and been many times. However this time it was just awful. The restaurant was over packed, tables were in places where never before. We were sat on the balcony - right by the entrance door. So non stop my husband had to move his head as waiters were bringing massive loads of food through the door, putting the huge circle black carriers with the hot food right next to us, the waiters were non stop chatting loudly there. Basically our table should not even be there!! I booked 5weeks before hand and asked for table in a quite spot- so this was a joke! The whole restaurant was so loud and overcrowded, not a pleasant experience!

Reservation I had on the 7th December DF Darren Finnerty Sun 08/12/2019 21:51 Sent Items To: [email protected]; Evernote I am writing this email in regards to a table reservation I had with yourselves on Saturday 7th December. The table was booked for 8:15pm in the name of Darren Finnerty for 2 people. The reason for this email is to say how displeased I was with the level of service as soon as we walked through the door on Saturday. Firstly it was just utter chaos in the doorway with upwards of 20 people waiting to be seated. We just about squeezed in the door. My other half was then nearly knocked out by the door as a member of staff came rushing through with a chair. No apology or anything. I then managed to work my way through the waiting crowd to speak to a guy with a clipboard. I told him my reservation and he replied  "ok 1 moment". He then walked off and didnt come back for nearly 10 minutes. When he came back he was asking people again how many was in the different groups because he clearly had forgotten. I said to him again about my table to which he replied "it will be ready in a minute sir". All this time we were waiting we were still crammed in by the door with lots of others waiting as well. Then a group of 4 came in at 8:30. They appeared to know the staff because they were using all their first names. This group was then seated at 8:40 bearing in mind I had a table reserved 15 minutes before theirs but yet they were seated before us which I believe was totally wrong. All this time from when we first walked in the door until now no one had said that you was running slightly late or anything. They just kept fobbing us off with 1 minute all the time. 8:45 we finally got told our table is ready. We made are way to the table. Only to be told half way to the table that it wasnt in fact ready yet. So now we are standing in the middle of the restaurant with no table while others are trying to enjoy their meals. Then we are shown to this table, which had been plonked on the end of another table. The table had been brought in from outside so it was freezing cold and damp. The member of staff attempted to dry it but I told him it was still damp and freezing. We couldn't of eaten off of that as a hot plate of food would of gone cold in about 5 minutes of being put on the table. Also I informed him that the table was wobbly. He replied with "if you just lean on this bit it's fine". In the end after being appalled at the poor service we got up and left. So we then had to go and find somewhere else to eat. All in all I would say that this was probably the worst level of service I have ever had in a restaurant. It's not a cheap restaurant either. To sum up I would say the organisation in that place was nothing short of shambolic and the people skills shown by the staff in your restaurant was virtually zero. I would seriously recommend looking at how your booking system works, because quite clearly on Saturdays showing it doesn't work. Secondly perhaps look at how your staff talk to customers because at the end of the day it's the paying customer that keeps your place open Darren Finnerty

Our waiter was extremely arrogant, rude and ruined our evening. I had a bland steak and got a burned dessert. Also we had to wait half an hour for the drinks and ended up being the wrong ones anyway. The waiter argued and blamed us for not knowing what to order.Never again, you should choose your staff more wisely.

The acoustics of the building do not work you cannot hear any conversation when it is busy as it is too noisy

Table of 7 for dinner on Fri 29th Nov. Food very nice but service very slow and was too noisy. We were upstairs and feel the noise is more dispersed when sitting downstairs. We could hardly hear the conversation at our table. The ladies toilets are very very small and were extremely unclean, disgusting in fact. They are a real let down to the restaurant, considering how nice the restaurant decor is.
