Loved how you could book a table for dinner and then keep it for the reminder of the night

We really enjoyed our lunch at your establishment. It was lovely and the atmosphere was great. The service was good from most of the staff but there was one girl with long blonde hair and she was just rude. She didn't say please or thankyou, to the point that we didn't even know if she heard our order, she would just walk off. It was a bit disappointing as the rest of the staff were great and couldn't do enough for us.

The female waitress who waited our table at the start of the night was extremely rude and unhelpful. She rolled her eyes when we asked for things and made several rude comments to the party. The male waiter who waited the table the rest of the night was great, very pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately the waitress had already put a dampener on our experience by this point. Everything else was great but the service from the waitress was abysmal and made us not want to ask for anything as it was evidently annoying her.

We had a great evening, the starters were on the small side, the quality of the food was good and Aperol Spritz was expensive

Our food was beautiful but our waitress was EXTREMELY rude, she slammed our plates, rolled her eyes at every opportunity and was overheard calling us a table of complainers. We arrived at the bar around two hours before and had a few drinks each, when our table was ready we were served our starter and there wasn’t enough cutlery aand when we asked for more she flicked her hair, rolled her eyes and stormed off. We had ordered chips for one of the steaks we asked her twice before receiving them after the meal was finished. Very disappointing and although the food was lovely I doubt we will return as we were also given the wrong bill.

Christmas dinner in Sweet Afton was enjoyable. It was particularly busy - due to it being Christmas, but staff were friendly and service was efficient. Thank you.

We were seated in the bar area of Swert Afton - in a corner booth, in the middle of the thoroughfare, near the entrance to the kitchen. When we arrived we found our table had been completely taken over by bar-goers. We asked them to move, along with their coats and drinks but got dirty looks and foul mouths. The staff eventually got the other people to move, and received more abuse from them. We were glared at by these ladies for a good half hour at least. The music was so loud we literally had to yell at each other to be heard. The night was spent fending off our dinner table from random drunks setting down their bottles and empty glasses on our dinner table while we were mid meal, hanging their coats on the back of our seats and banging into us. The service was good although it seemed as thought they were under a lot of pressure. Our starters were fine, mains were good but three of us had the Eton mess for dessert and had to send them back as they contained no fruit. In fairness we did get comped some Prosecco for that. I think if we had been seated in the restaurant section of the bar, we may have enjoyed our night, but as we were jostled and hassled all night, I was embarrassed to have chosen Sweet Afton for dinner and would not return. The last time I was there was New Year’s Eve and it was a much different atmosphere even though it was a huge night. Perhaps our seating helped that night. That corner booth is completely inappropriate for a party booking for dinner. I was very disappointed. Oh, finally, it took us three attempts to get the correct bill. The first one arrived with no food on it whatsoever - we could have just paid for our drinks and left. The next bill had one too many dinners included. The final one was correct!

there were a party of 8 girls out for our Christmas dinner on sunday 2nd dec and I'm sorry to say that we were not impressed. we had been there 2 years ago and such a difference in the quality of food. we had the 3 course Christmas fayre which cost £28.95 per head and a £3.00 supplement for anyone who wanted a steak......well there were 3 of our party had steaks all of which were really fatty and could not be eaten. one of the girls had chicken that came with the smallest amount of 'trimmings' I have ever seen. value for money was a complete rip off and I'm sorry to say I don't think we will ever be back. sorry

Booked table a while ago as our first wedding anniversary and we had our first date there. We had table booked for 1pm and enjoyed a lovely meal. Card for next reservation said for 5.15pm. I ordered a drink at 2.55pm and at 3.05pm was asked to leave for next reservation? Really not happy as it ruined our afternoon. Drank up quickly and left very disappointed.
