Service was slow and sat with tables that had been vacated but not cleared away for at least 45 minutes. Food was excellent as usual, hopefully service was just a blip.
Very attentive server. One order was wrong but was sorted out quickly with no fuss. Overall very happy with the experience.
Lovely family evening :-)
Super friendly and speedy service as always TGI’s always my favourite go to
Great service, very kind waitress
Never been disappointed, friendly staff, great food and amazing cocktails
Fantastic service waitress was very friendly and helpful! Really made a big fuss of my daughter as it was her 10th birthday.
Food was either over cooked i.e burnt or cold. Have had much better in the past. Will not be going there again.
Nachos starter was disappointing. The nachos were soggy as the cheese had been melted too much on top in the microwave. The nachos should be crispy not soggy. Had better on previous visits.
good food, good service. Friendly helpful staff. Thanks to the team who made our evening great
Booked a table for 4 people @ 20:15 which was fine but then waited over 20 minutes to have drink orders taken, drinks took over 10 mins to reach table and then when food arrived at table all our seasame chicken strips had hardly any glaze on them and had no knife or fork for 10 minutes. It then took over 30 minutes to get the table cleared and the bill. Worse experience yet when normally service is on point and so is the food (disappointing)
Great service fantastic food
Great food as usual. Fast service.
Although having booked a table, the front of house staff started seating people who didn't have bookings and arrived after our party. I had to chase twice for them to find us our table. The waiters were stretched thin, with what seems like only one for a large area for around 12 tables. With that many people to serve on a saturday night, no one is going to have a pleasant experience. Onion rings along with a main of ribs came out luke warm. These were sent back. The onion rings were obviously re-fried as came back dripping in oil. The ribs only came back once 3 other people had finished their mains. The manager was sent over to speak to our party, who explained she had a fairly young team. Not ideal for prime time on a saturday night. Management should try hiring a few extra staff so the waiters and bar staff can focus on providing a good service. We've used this restaurant since it opened, and usually have a pretty good experience. This time we were sadly disappointed.
Great service, great staff, especially our waitress who was amazing. Food was as good as it always is. Always happy to go back there.
I come to tgis lakeside a lot and I Must admit I’ve noticed a huge change in the restaurant ( much better ) Manager was absolutely lovely when we didn’t receive my daughters meal with our starters, waitress was nice. Overall brilliant service and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Great work guys will definitely return
Our waiter was fantastic Quick And friendly
Had a great time and a great birthday experience
Lovely food, good service but run out of sweet potatoes which is my favourite xx
Food was very nice although it was the first time we had visited on a more busy day. The waitress was rushed off her feet, the children’s meal - fish fingers and chips, came just as that, no veg or beans as stated in the menu ( felt like there was only half the meal there). Portions seemed smaller than other times we have visited.
Very lovely customer service
Food as ever was excellent with generous portions. However whilst I appreciate Saturday nights are busy, we shouldn’t have to keep reminding staff about missing drink orders, or birthday suprises. In addition, please don’t serve beers in warm glasses - you must have a glass rinse you can use to cool glasses down. We didn’t bother returning the beers cos we had waited too long to get them in the 1st place...!
The poor waiting staff were run off their feet and there clearly wasn't enough of them to serve the number of bookings. It took us half an hour to have our drinks order taken and so 45 minutes in total before we had a drink. Two courses took 2 hours 45 minutes. I felt very sorry for our waitress. C'mon TGI managers, get proper cover in for a Saturday night!
The restaurant was really dirty. Floor had lots of food rubbish over it and this was everywhere, not just in certain places. Your toilets were the worst, they looked like they hadn't been attended to all day, with water all over the floor and tissue everywhere. As for the service, I couldn't fault our waitress. The was nothing to write home about but at the same time, nothing to complain about as it was tasty.
