Leave room for freshly prepared desserts like the brownie obsession, chocolate fudge fixation and the cookie dough sundae.
Great service from our waitress and the food was very nice and came out quickly. A big downpoint was when my Mother in law had 2 bits of sharp blue plastic in her ice cream sundae (one bit what’s very big/sharp and could’ve caused problems if she hadn’t noticed. Would have been awful if a child had swallowed it!) - manager came over and knocked it off bill but was still shocking. The room temperature was also freezing - lots of people were complains about this. It was snowing outside and they had the air conditioning on - madness!
Came for 30th birthday. Staff very miserable. Very slow service. Kept trying yo clear our table when people were still eating / drinking...felt like we were being rushed. We brought in a surprise birthday cake, gave to the waitress when we arrived. After our dinner the waitress asked the birthday girl if she wanted her cake...ruining the surprise
Food we ordered some of it was cold and the ribs and onion rings were over cooked over all the food for the price wasn't good such a shame as it was mothers day and was expecting a good meal.
The food was terrible. Everything was horribly overcooked. Refunded 2 of the meals but every main course was bad (6). I sent my steak back twice. Not difficult to cook a rare steak. Manager said it was down to trainee chefs. Probably not the wisest decision to have only trainee staff in the kitchen on a Friday night. My sister's birthday was ruined. Waitress was a sweet girl. We did have to ask 4 times though for her to bring over a glass of water.
Nice food and drinks. Steak was cooked perfectly. Service was excellent.
Booking online was easy, trying to change the booking was very difficult
I was disappointed at the quality of the ribs. They were old... The waitress was great..
The food was good, even though it took a long time to get a drink. The waitress said it was busy but there were numerous tables empty, also because it was "busy" could not provide us a new set of cutlery after our starters which is quite frankly laughable. After we finished our mains we were quickly given the bill without us asking for it followed by the waitress coming over 2 minutes later with the card machine even though we hadn't even got our purses out to pay. All in all food was good but very rushed and not excellent customer service, wouldn't be so bothered if it was busy but it was a quiet Wednesday night.
The service was slow, the place felt dirty. We could see our drinks at the bar waiting for 10 minutes even though the bar was empty at the time. It was my birthday and the staff were sweet about that.
Service very very slow. Went for the unlimited appetisers. Server kept getting order wrong. Not good value for money as everything took so long. Server did not clear table when plates we’re finished unless asked. Even when pudding menus were given out.
Awful. Useless staff, had to shout to get their attention in order to tell them several times that the drinks i'd ordered hadn't arrived. Food orser was wrong ao all came at different times, not together. Cocktails were made wrong. Ran out of pinot. Was generally awful and won't go to the oracle TGIs again, was a bad experience and a complete waste of money. We genuinely debated doing a runner on the cheque and we only didn't cos we're good people, so paid and left feeling utterly ripped off. Shame, ilikeTGIs but will be hard pushed to come back again any time soon. I'm doing the opposite of recommending TGIs to friends and colleagues right now im afraid...
No comment as it was that bad
There was a wait of 1.5-2hrs on food, when food arrived it was cold. Very disappointing as this was my birthday meal with friends. The only positive from the evening was our lovely waitress, Jessica from the Reading Oracle branch who was very apologetic and went out of her way to look after us despite the difficult circumstances and the lack of support from her manager.
I had a great time, it was my birthday and I got treated really well and had fantastic food alongside
Sorry but I feel tgi's is now falling behind their competitors. The food was average and over priced. We booked a table and the greeting process is not good, I was tempted to turn and walk out.
Unfortunately the service at the Oracle branch is getting worse and worse. This visit may have been the final nail :( Service is always such an issue that I even prewarned my party about how it could be and tonight’s visit didn’t let us down on my warning! Awful. 15 minutes wait to order food. 1 of our starters (sharing tower) was literally thrown over the table behind and all over a young girl who got covered, our tower had to get remade so we had to sit and wait whilst 2 of our guests ate theirs. 1 other starter then didn’t even arrive until after the second remade tower arrived!!!! We asked twice for side plates for the tower, didn’t arrive. We hadn’t even finished the starters when all of the mains turned up so we had to mess about moving plates around, rushing what was left to fit new plates. We were then provided with double on 2 mains orders - so thats likely 2 plates of food that either had to be binned or given to another table! All in all the service is a shambles and puts you off returning!
Love tgi’s normally but this occasion was my worst so far. Was not happy and food was not like normal Caversham one 100000% better
The ladies toilets weren’t working when we visited (is this legally allowed) I reported it. Was assuming it was a very temporary issue but surely the toilet should have been closed and an alternative offered. When I reported it to your staff I got an ‘oh there is a plumber here’. There wasn’t any Pinot Grigio or Viognier wine which your wait staff weren’t aware of until they went back and forth to the bar. Food was ok - chips were over seasoned. Husband wasn’t impressed with dirty pails used to clean tables being left on the bar rather than away from sight. Not really what we expect from a TGI’s and not as good as the one on the outskirts of Reading next to Mothercare.
Your staff were just rude and impatient they just wanted us in and out and was rushing us the whole time. I wouldn’t go back to this TGIs and defiantly wouldn’t recommend it.
DOUBLE GLAZED RIBS. That is all
We arrived 25 mins early for our table but was seated straight away and the young man who served us was very polite.
We all had a really lovely time and would gladly go back
I feel the quality of food has gone down. The service was rather bad, one meal and desert was ignored, wrong drinks given. Other servers kept trying to give us different orders...i feel your staff seemed over worked. The cocktails where great they deserve 4 stars.
Great food,friendly atmosphere
