Table booked for 18:30 we were told to have a seat and they will call us when it’s free (we were 20 mins early). It gets to 6:45 and I ask about the table and I received an apology for forgetting us and the table nearest the door was cleaned and that’s all fine, I understand it was busy. We were celebrating a birthday and found out about the free birthday drink. Whilst waiting at the bar we were told that we have to have it with a meal, we confirmed we were dining and they said that’s fine we could have them now and they will tell the waiter/waitress to add 3 to the bill and honour the 4th with the code. They asked for the code and checked ID. All okay at this stage. When we are seated we were served by a really nice lady with short hair (her service was pretty much great throughout). Starters and mains ordered, around 45 mins from ordering to move onto mains. Unfortunately my main tasted and looked inside the triple stack burger that it had been sat waiting for a while. It was dry and tasted old. (The starters and other mains were really good though) and all previous visits were amazing. I told the waitress and she apologised and asked a manager to come over. I just explained the same as before and from experience the last burger I had here I rated top 3 burgers I’d had and this was probably bottom 3 (for a successful chain). The manager was the tall one, he apologised and said he won’t charge me for a burger I couldn’t eat. My friends finished the rest of their dinners and then we asked for the bill. 20 minutes later we were still waiting and asked again. The bill had the birthday drink and burger still on there (bad communication). The burger was removed but a second manager came over and condescendingly confirmed that we are lucky he removed the birthday drink for us even though the code only lasts an hour. We were unaware of this when we were asked to show it at the bar. If they confirmed to the waitress what they said they were going to do, this wouldn’t have happened. The smaller manager was at the table talking about this for about a minute and I just kept thinking if you are going to honour it, why are you going on about it for so long when someone is trying to enjoy their birthday. We said to the waitress who served us that we ordered at the bar and they said it is fine- the manger should have spoke to the bar staff and once confirmed they said this, the conversation with us would not be necessary. Anyway, the manager finally approves this and then we waited a further 10 mins for the card machine to be supplied. The waitress apologised again and offered a slice of takeaway cake for the birthday guest which was a nice touch. I’ve worked as a waiter for 8 years and myself and the party completely understood mistakes can happen and I know the food is good it was just a one off, but the way it was handled was not smooth or professional from my experience.

Disappointing that it took over 30 minutes after sitting down to receive 1 drink then at least another 5 minutes to receive the rest. A longish wait for starters, OK relativity busy but know where near as busy as August. Finish starters and plates not cleared then mains turn up. Waitress not very attentive at all. Food excellent service very poor

We can’t for a birthday celebration and I had requested a booth, as it was a special occasion, when booking. This was accommodated, the staff attentive without being overbearing. Food was great and everyone left full and happy. Thank you for making it a great evening and for singing to my niece 😊

Restaurant clean and tidy with a great atmosphere. Food well displayed and a good temperature on arrival. Service fab, knew when to leave us alone and when to attend. Just feel its a bit pricey for what some of it is and being told its extra for bbq sauce is not a good reflection on the prices.

We went on a relatively busy Saturday evening. We were served quickly, food brought out quickly, and the young guy that served us (I can’t remember his name) was lovely!

We had a great evening celebrating my son's 18th birthday and farewell as he heads off to uni. On arrival the server showed us to our table which had been set up with balloons which was a nice touch. We were a party of 10, (3 families). Our table's server was Katy who was fantastic. Friendly and attentive and so on the ball. She noticed when mine and my younger son's refillable cokes were empty and whisked the glasses away to refill. I handed her my father's glass later in the meal to refill as she'd been super busy serving other tables and she knew exactly whose it was even though I'd not said. She also remember what type of coke we liked and that we didn't want ice. The other staff were great too. My youngest son had a question about the plastic straws which one of the staff answered brilliantly and we discovered they are biodegradable. He explained why you don't use paper ones. On that note, it would be great for there to be a sign somewhere saying about the straws. If there was one, sorry we missed it! My only complaint, and it's not your restaurant it's the chain, is that the music is a bit too loud. It makes it hard to have a conversation, which is one of the main reasons we were there. Fab night though. Please give Katy a gold star! I thanked her personally on the night, but she's worthy of particular praise in this review.

Cajun chicken fajitas were way too hot no chilli markings to show this spice level on menu. I like spicy food but this was so hot you couldnt taste anything so food was ruined for me. Also I was on edge as i have globaphobia which is a fear of balloons so balloon modelling makes me feel very uncomfortable.

Our sever really made our experience great. She had a good balance between chatting and being friendly but not hovering all the time. The food was also great. Will definitely be back and will recommend.

Terribly slow staff, probably not enough. I think we were in the restaurant for just over 2 hours. With 2 small children and going in for a fairly quick bite to eat.....too long (and bored children)
