Booked a quiet table as 2 out of 4 of us have hearing aids. Disappointed that we were put in the middle of the first room in front of the bar area with a table of 10 at the side of us (including children), so conversation was difficult due to noise levels. Main meals were beautifully cooked and very tasty. Cheeseboard had slices of cheese rather than wedge-shaped pieces and was a bit on the mean side. Good service. Would not return Saturday evening again due to noise levels.

Although my husband and I have used the venue on numerous occasions, we bought 4 friends with us who had never been before. All commented on the staff, food and value for money and congratulated me on the good choice. Thoroughly enjoyed it

I was greeted by what looked like a manager (lady) when asked if the table was ready, she said it was not. she then asked if i would like any drinks, but all of our party was there yet so i was reluctant to order. I was then told to go and wait outside. I booked this table days before that the 2nd August, but we were eventually put on a table for 4 and there were 6 on the reservation. We had to wait 40 minutes for our starters. then a further 45 minutes for the mains. When the mains eventually came. our party complained that the food looked dried up, it had clearly been standing for a while and warmed up, then served to us. The steak i had was clearly rare and not as i ordered which was medium / rare. Your waitress asked was everything ok, i said that the steak was as explained above, she then went on the defensive with saying "I think you will find that is medium rare" it was clearly not and there was no way i was going to argue at the table in front of my guests. We have not been to your place before, on arrival i did look at the food being brought out when i was first at the bar, it all looked fresh and ok. Our food as mentioned was rushed and warmed up. There was also a very large guy "your entertainment for the evening who kept bumping into the back of my son's chair, with no apology. He just found this hilarious. I found him to very rude indeed. Then when i came to pay the bill, your waitress go the wrong bill saying that we had deserts etc, i explained that we had not she then insisted that we had and the bill was correct. it was not I. this went on for a few minutes. I ended up fetching the table number to prove what table i was on. This just ended a bad experience and I would value the opportunity to see you face to face, any time to suite you, after you have read this feedback, but i don't think that will happen. I challenge you to apologise to my face. This was my son's 18th Birthday and thanks to the overall way we were treated that night, it was very disappointing indeed. I will await on your reply, that's if i get one. regards Mr Tony Tams 07947643725

Steaks were well done even though we had ordered medium rare. However the meal was still delicious, huge portions! Service was outstanding, would definitely visit again.
