Booked a table on friday and was reminded no less than 4 times we needed to leave the table on some sort of countdown you have half an hour ,you have 15 mins ,you have 10 mins etc,this was despite the fact that 2 other tables that arrived the same time as us were in full flow of drinks and food and were not prompted to move ,the food and drinks and staff are nice but overall not an enjoyable experience ,1 and a half hours nowhere near long enough and I think they just want to cram as many peopme in as possible to the detriment of the existing customers ,its worth noting many underage drinkers in there and I didnt see ID asked for once

Restaurant Response

Hi Anne-Marie, Firstly let me thank you for taking time to leave us a review. Couple of points to note from your review. I'm sorry if you fet that you were being hassled about your table. We do like to just keep tables up to date as to where they are up to. Due to current guidelines we do need to make sure that guests on tables are finished at the time that your email confirmation will have said. As for the other 2 tables who were in at the same time as you, as they were larger in number of guests, they will have been allocated longer time on their booking. We take current guidelines and restrictions very seriously, so I must contest your point that we just try to "cram as many people as possible in". We have a reduced capacity, and are regularly turning away guests at the door who do not have a booking. You only have to look at previous reviews to see that we are very COVID safe, to know that we don't cram people in. It is worth noting that you enjoyed your food and drink, and that is always our top priority. As for you stating there are many underage drinkers in, is a touch uncalled for. The only group of young looking people in at the time of your booking, was a table of young girls, who 2 of them actually work for us, so as we know that they are of an age to legally purchase alcohol we don't really need to ask for ID. I don't really feel that this comment is needed, as you didn't know all the facts. We operate a strict challenge 25 policy, so I hope this puts your mind at ease around this. Kind regards Bradleigh General Manager
