The food took to long to come out from the kitchen, and when it did arrive some of the food was cold.

Very poor service Would not recommend TGI purley way to anyone I know. We ordered the starters-no problem After ordering the Mains 2 of us ordered the steak ribs and shrimp combo. we waited then only to be told no 6oz steak We asked for the 7oz which was in stock to be added instead but was told no we could not do that so we had to have another alternative not happy When the mains arrived some were warm some were cold and some mixed up.p one of my party didn't even get his meal and when we complained we were told the kitchen was closed when didn't make sense as we originally complained the kitchen was still open. The manager was decent enough to void the mains off our bill and the young man who served us tried his best. But still not happy as this was a birthday meal for my wife who was very upset especially as we had people over from New York as well. It just poor all round from start to end Hence I will not be coming back to this establishment.

Our reservation was at 5.30pm, which was not peak time. We were a party of 7, having brought our young son's friends with us to celebrate his birthday. The restaurant seemed to be understaffed in all areas. Drinks were served late because the bar staff could not keep up with the orders. The main course came within a reasonable time. We had to wait 30 minutes for our desserts, and then only half of them were served, because there was insufficient dessert glassware and cutlery available. When we complained, the remainder of the desserts were served in drinks glasses. One of our party had to leave without his dessert as it was so late. To her credit, the waiting staff assigned to our table did her best in a bad situation. We received a partial refund on our bill. In addition to the poor service, the ladies toilets were completely blocked and overflowed when flushed. We have been to this TGI's before, in busier times than this, but have never had as bad an experience as this. Unless there is an improvement in staffing, organisation and cleanliness, we will not be returning.

Been going here for few years and have to say rapidly going down hill. The decor and lighting is dark, my food cane out the plate hotter than the food the waitress served our food and didn’t ask us if we wanted any sauces etc, no condiments on the table nor returned to ask us if our food was ok nor if we wanted any further drinks. It was extremely cold in the restaurant so much so we kept our coats on during the length of our visit. We waited 15 minutes to pay for our bill after asking for it and the restruant was not even busy

I was very disappointed with the experience we had at my son's 9th birthday meal. The service was very slow, the food poor quality and we waited over 45 minutes for drinks and 1 1/2 hours for our meal. My husband's burger had items missing from it and his chips were stone cold. It ruined my son's birthday.

The service was extremely slow, sometimes waiting 45 minutes for an ordered drink. The food was average, a friends medium steak was well-done and without the mentioned sauces, my fajita came out without the right sides, the birthday discount for our drinks wasn't removed from our bill. I doubt we'll be back.

Book a table for 6 booths are quite small would fit 4 comfortably. Also had an wxtea person total now 7. It was not busy so ask if the test rest of the party could sit on the booth behind we were told no. They could sit at a 2 seater and one squeeze with us. The place did not get filled up so was really annoyed with that. Had children had to ask for something for them. they had a pack with colouring pencils, word search Tec that should have just been automatic. cocktails varied first one better than the first. like the Jack Daniels shrimp. but tasted better sweet potatoes chips and coleslaw. Children liked the burgers , ribs and milkshake. Service was long. tried to grab waiter a number of times, She was busy with other tables too although the restaurant in itself was not busy, ended up asking other people, just for things like another drink, barbecue sauce.

Enjoyed our visit and the food was lovely. The only shame was our server wasn't very efficient. We had a "cover" server whilst the regular one was on break and in some mix up with the handover, half of the main courses weren't put onto the system so only one came out. The meal that did arrive wasn't very hot so had to be sent back to be reheated. We also had no cutlery for mains which took a while to be brought over.

Service was really good, especially considering we were a large group with lots of children. The waitress brought out the children’s food first which was much appreciated. All food was cooked well, everybody cleared their plates so must have tasted good too. Was pleasantly surprised when the bill came too.

Initially the service was good but as the restaurant got busier unfortunately we were forgotten about several times, it took 45 mins for the bill and we had children to get home. The food was on another level of bad...dry shrivelled chips, old salad, a very sad looking burger and dry bun which several people of the table ordered but couldn't eat. Forgotten shrip on a meal which has shrimp in the name!! I thought last time I visited in the summer the restaurant had gone down hill but this confirmed it. So so bad! Such a shame because the restaurant itself is great and the vibe is good. Just let down by food cooked and a little on the service.
