Service was very poor. Server often forgot what we asked for (drinks and the bill) asked for the bill and had to wait 20 minutes for him.

Bit disappointed I have been here before always been good but last night just wasn't up to the usual high tgi standards. Our table was not ready when we arrived you were over half hour late having it ready we went to the bar despite not being overly busy at the bar we never managed to not get served in time in that half hour wait for the table so had no drinks. We were given no cutlery until we asked, our food came out in bits so some of us were eating some of us missing bits. Most of the cocktails we ordered took a very long time and when they didn't arrive we were told they weren't able to do that cocktails and had to order another. It would have been nice to be told that information when ordering or shortly afterwards not 30minites after waiting for them and us having to ask where they were. The same thing happened with my boyfriends desert. Our bill was 240 pound so we spent a reasonable amount there and yet there were many things wrong with our visit and disappointing. I have to say I won't be in a rush to come back again and I won't be recommending it, just the servers telling us about things not being available would have gone a long way.

Food was great. Staff made a big fuss of my daughter whose birthday it was. Only complaint is that we got no veg at all with the kids meals. A party from that it was fantastic.

No 'host'/'hostess' upon entry so we were waiting for a longer than expected time to be seated. Drinks took a very long time to arrive (second round of drinks was ordered when main courses were arrived but finished arriving with desserts). Otherwise the staff were pleasant and were welcoming.

First time trying this tgi, Service wasn’t great. We were sat without food or drink, for over half an hour after arriving and being seated. Half an hour passed and we finally met our waitress - she was lovely. The first initial waiting period put us off after a long drive to you, we just wanted a drink to see us through.

While we visited, there was a bit of an issue at the bar with another guest - the children were a bit taken aback but all seemed to calm down ok. It did affect the wait times on drinks however.

The waiter that served us was amazing (young guy, blond hair & wore glasses--can't remember his name-sorry) . There were 20 guests and he dealt with us like a true professional.. At times I knew it would be difficult for him but he handled it calmly as ever- a TGI boss! Thank you very much, you re a true ambassador to the company and your employer need & should reward you well. My birthday was a huge success and I really enjoyed it.. 1or 2 hiccups with the food itself (not the waiters fault), but it was dealt with. Truly a birthday to remember from my guests and your staff. Once again thank you.

Food is always awful here and music far too loud. We keep forgetting how bad it is and that’s the only reason we seem to end up there every 12 months or so.

Our only issue was that we were a party of 8 that was sat next to a till and the kitchen entrance exit. It was all very tight and we felt in the way , also the tables weren't the same height made us feel very thrown together.

When I made the reservation I specifically told the lady st the desk not to bring out a balloon hat or sing happy birthday to my son as he hates attention. Even though she put this in the reservation screen, both happened. I managed to control him the first time but singing and everyone staring was to much and he jumped over people to get out and ran out of the building and refused to come back, which spoilt it really as we could of had desserts but had to abandon ship, and it was his celebration with friends and ended badly. Very distressed and upset for the rest of his day which should of been perfect
