Ordered off the set menu but were told after receiving the bill that we should've said that was what we were doing. The food is the same so why isn't it automatically deducted? No where in any promo emails sent, small print on the menu or verbally at the start were we told this was the rule. As we're not psychic either, the waitress did speak to the manager and we got the deal (I think) and the bill was revised but after cold chips, chewy steak and brown limp lettuce, it was just further disappointment. They'd also run out of ice cream which we were prewarmed about so this wasn't a huge issue! Have always been happy here before but this visit was terrible and has put me off wanting to come back again.

Truly Shocking service. 14 children ended up irritable and bored after what had been a good start to the party (at a trampoline park). I ended up taking the orders myself as the waitress had been 15 minutes ordering drinks, food arrived an hour later along with the parents so I couldn’t eat mine. I even cleared the tables myself 40 minutes after we had finished eating. Gave up waiting for the ice creams to go with the birthday cake I took so cancelled them, only to wait a further 15 minutes for my cake back. 14 sets of parents waiting awkwardly in the foyer for half an hour. Really stressful and embarrassing and such a disappointment for the children. Food was dry and badly presented. Thankfully though, your new general manager seemed very on the ball once she was made aware. Jenna was extremely apologetic and helpful and didn’t charge us for the awful experience.

Reserved a table for 8.00pm for 2 people, waited 20 mins to be seated, half the restaurant was closed or just not seating people in the upper half although there was lots of people waiting to be seated. When eventually being sat after having to ask a member of staff when we were going to be sat after no one approaching us, the food was really nice and so was the lady that served us! Shame about the start to the evening though

Drinks were so expensive we had about 7 each and didn’t touch us I had cocktails with extra shots of vodka and didn’t even feel like I had a drink I’m so angry that I spend £90 on drinks!! When might as well of been drinking water!!! Food was nice but the ribs had loads of small bones in and the chips didn’t taste cooked but the chicken strips starter was amazing I’m so disappointed I spent £90 off drinks and £48 on the meal so a lot of money I Just can’t get over the drinks discusted that they are cheating me out of my hard earned money

I am afraid that we were extremely disappointed with the service during our most recent visit to your restaurant. The waiting staff were good but the poor young lady waiting on our section was run off her feet. She did not have the time to do the best job. The bar was shocking. There were only two staff behind the bar on the evening we were there. One of which was training. The young man was more intent on serving the young ladies that were at the bar rather than us. We waited 40 minutes for a round of drinks. When we initially complained we were told the staff work in sections and, although I agree that would normally be the case, when someone is training the more experienced member of staff would work all areas especially as the bar is never that busy. We were then told that they were short staffed due to sickness. Again, having worked in the industry myself for 25+ years, when we arrived it would have been good customer service to let customers know that service may be a bit slower for this reason. The food was nice and the drinks, once we had them, were ok. It was a disappointing start to my 40th Birthday Celebrations to be honest and I don not think I will be going to that restaurant anytime soon.

We waited for ages at the top bar to be served a drink when we were waiting for our table to be cleared ready for us! We had a wobbly table. We went through so many paper straws! Food was delicious and we had a good experience but those are a few things could've been better!

Ended up with adults meals first so kids who were starving had to wait. One adult meal was cold and went back. May as well have eaten individually in the end. Desserts were incorrect and an extremely poor standard we sent them back. Awful even with a discount from the bill I’d have had better service and cheaper at McDonald’s.

We came the same time last year to celebrate a birthday and had a good time - food was well cooked and presented but this time was a disappointment. We asked for a plain burger (for a fussy eater) - it had mustard on it, so he didn't eat it. We wanted a plain grilled salmon steak - this came with some sort of topping, so this wasn't eaten. The chips were cold and even the youngsters left them. The salad with the steak was badly presented. We all wanted a sweet with ice cream but the ice cream maker was broken, so we went without. We won't be coming next year!
