The food was amazing as always, however I did pre-order but there was a mix-up with the starters and main meals and 2 Individuals therefore didn't eat at the same time as rest of party. We also came last year which we enjoyed better as we had crackers on the table and we were also given a complimentary glass of Prosecco, there was nothing like that this year, so felt there was no Christmas atmosphere. The staff were amazing and worked very hard keeping our drinks topped up. May not come again next year as it didn't feel very Christmassey this year

The staff went above and beyond for my party of 25. They were very polite and patient considering some in my party were a bit loud. The cocktails were to die for. Food was amazing. Good value for money. Will definitely be going back soon.

The server Kayley G was exceptional. So kind and helpful to everything we needed or wanted. If all your staff at that TGI Fridays are like Kayley then that is one brilliant store and team. Also one of my colleagues had a bit of a crush on her as well. Merry Christmas ands keep up that good work!

Food was brilliant as always the only issue I had was that I booked a table to avoid having to wait given it was a Saturday night but we still ended up having a 35 minute wait! What is the point in booking if you still have to wait as long as someone who walks in off the street without a booking?

Food was great. Atmosphere was great. Daiquiri needed remixing as too thick to drink with paper straw and initially couldn’t taste the alcohol. When we asked I couldn’t fault the response. Friendly and attentive service. Only criticism the customer female toilets weren’t clean and only one cubicle with toilet roll

Booked the Xmas part menu for 8 people which was pre-ordered, when we arrived the waitress had no idea what we had ordered, also the it took 30 minutes for the drinks to arrive which we also pre-ordered. They were serving us the main whilst still eating the starter.The service was poor with the waitress not interested.

Service was terrible, ordered drinks and they came with the food which we ordered way after. Food came, we had no cutlery for 15 mins after the food came, asked 3 waitresses and didn’t seem to listen. Will never be returning to this restaurant.

Avoid at all costs. They are too busy at this time of year to deal with the volume of customers. I had to ask for the starters to be cleared, having sat with finished plates in front of us for 15 minutes. All the mains were cold (steak,chicken, vegetables, chips). The kitchen stack the plates up under the hot plate 2/3 deep to try and keep ahead. They’re clearly not hot enough (having worked in kitchens for over a decade I’d say that it probably doesn’t meet food safety regulations). We were offered replacements but because it had taken so long to get our starters and then have them cleared we had run out of time. We were given replacement hot chicken but unfortunately the chips that were given with them were still cold. The table behind us had also complained about the wait and the cold food. A real shame and something I think that could so easily be rectified with better staffing and pride in cooking fresh food that isn’t left to cool down while waiting for staff to clear tables. It was supposed to be an early Christmas meal with my parents and to be honest, the whole experience was dismal. I won’t be going back any time soon that’s for sure.

The low rating on service is because we asked for the bill and two other people asked for there’s 5/10 mins after they got there’s and we got ours after 20mins with no apologie when I asked her why we waited so long!

We arrived at 7.45pm as per booking and waited 45 mins to be seated. We then waited 15 mins to have our order taken. Then over an hour later food was brought out and it wasn't meant for us but a different table. We then had to wait a further 20 mins for our food. Overall service was terrible.

Table was not ready despite booking. Waitress took our drinks and food order promptly but our drinks took at least 20 minutes to arrive. The gin and tonics looked nothing like they did on the drinks menu - not served in a balloon glass but in a small squat glass. Once the food arrived (which did taste good) we asked for ketchup and mayo twice but it never arrived.

Would just like to add that Maria the manager who took my (coeliac) order is amazing. She is extremely knowledgable about the condition and makes such en effort to reassure and explain the preparation process. She has taken my order on two separate occasions and nothing is too much trouble!!! Well done Maria and the TGIs team!
