We had to wait nearly 15 minutes to be seated because there were not enough people doing this task. Given that nearly everyone waiting was a booking this should have been predicted and therefore avoided.
After getting home I noticed my bill included an extra Coke that should have been a free refill, and also a small milkshake that was sent back as it should have been a large one, only an extra £5.60, so not worth a huge fuss as I was given some vouchers after complaining about my previous visit, but still I've left feeling cheated. Guess I should have inspected the bill more thoroughly. The paper straws aren't fit for purpose either, they go soggy before you can finish a drink.
It took ages when we first came to even get a drink let alone order. It looked like there was staff standing talking while we had been sitting waiting for ages.
Despite booking as a birthday celebration, I had to remind staff twice the purpose of the occasion. As we were leaving a slice of cake was offered in a cardboard box. 🤔
starters very nice. Mains came out had no cutlery asked a waitress who then dropped 2 kids forks on the table and left. asked the waiter to give us forks and then started to eat and both our ribs were stone cold. no happy they went back and new ones came out but did not then have time for dessert as we had booked a film and had to leave.
Excellent meal and service. Aaron who served us was excellent and couldn't have done anymore. Made my daughter feel very special as it was her 5th Birthday.
The recent reduction in menu choice on both the Adult & child's menu left us struggling to choose something that we wanted, the menus are now too limited. This the one reason why we will not be returning to TGI anytime soon. Another reason... Service, our main server (the guy who took our order) was a little too eager to please asking us if everything was ok to frequently and expecting an answer mid-mouthful. The servers, the troop of underlings who bring the food to the table, need to learn how to crack a smile all looked thoroughly miserable! Oh, the helium balloons and balloon animals have seemingly gone awol, an aspect my children particularly found entertaining another cosy saving on TGI's part! Plus the noise, trying to get back to a trendy bar atmosphere has pushed us away we'll be going to Harvester from here on in.
Staff very friendly service bit slow but was a busy night so understandable but love the food and atmosphere and staff are very accommodating
Unfortunately there was no children activity packs so my little one was disappointed. When our food came my chicken fingers were cold in the middle . Not acceptable. I did get an apology but I don’t feel that was adequate for such a big error and then I had an offer for free deserts and was told that it was only for sundaes however that is not what the email or app said. I don’t eat sundaes so the offer was pointless. Very disappointing visit and not likely to return as we spent £60 for an awful evening meal out.
Great waiter. David B. Burger was burnt, but good portion sizes.
Our waitress was lovely and loved to help
My low scores relate to the children’s menu. There is no starter option for them so the adults went without too. We ordered from the larger kids menu and the portions were ridiculously small! We had to get extra portions of chips after the kids had eaten as they were all still hungry! My daughter isn’t a big eater so that’s saying something!
Fantastic large delicious portions, great waitress, will be returning
Fantastic night and glad I reserved a table!
We were overcharged on the bill. 3 steaks. We only had 2 !! We wanted 2 fillet steaks but at 7.30pm there was only one fillet steak left!!!! That was a bit shocking at that time on a Saturday night. Hence one of our party had to have rib eye. But then were charged for 2 fillet and one rib eye. We didnt pick up on this till we got home and checked the bill in more depth. Something you dont do at the time as it's rude doing that in front of your guests you invited. I have rung and rung but no one answers. Was given a wrong main course. Given white wine instead of Rosè. Missing a sauce on one of the meals. Was all a bit frantic in there. Staff clearly under pressure. Hence all the above mistakes! Such a shame as it was my sons 18th.
As always a brilliant evening. Staff are always friendly, helpful and cheerful. Will be back soon! 😁
Sophie our waitress was absolutely fantastic with the little ones in our group & made there’s & our evening so much more special
I cant remember the servers name but she was so nice
Food was very fast and efficient :) Staff lovely and helpful !!
Our Waitress (I didn't get her name unfortunately, but, was wearing a black beany and had straight blonde hair) was very friendly/ approachable and made our meal out very pleasant.
Menu really limited try adding beef ribs and a bbq range of food different dressings would be nice jd sauce is good but need something different
No sauce with the starters. Mixed portion sizes Dirty cutlery Extremely dirty plate (main meal) had large amount of previous persona tomato sauce Ruined our family meal Made my son feel very uncomfortable Would never ever visit again
The food took to long to come out and my other half ended up with food poising
Waitress was golden. Sophie C.
