The food and drinks were excellent well priced but the speed of service was really slow it took over an hour For the food to come out.

We didn’t have a very enjoyable experience from the lack of good customer service, the waiting time for food when we had children with us and im 8 months pregnant, the standard of food is nothing kike advertised on social media. We even had to go over to the bar to pay as no one bothered to ask if wanted deserts (despite childrens meal being at least two courses) or if we needed the bill.

Food was nicely flavoured (Jus), but unfortunately meal was luke warm, we had waited 45 mins after ordering, it was reasonably quiet, as a result we did not complain as we were hungry. The girl who took our order was nice, but the service wasn’t great. Had to open the bottle of prosecco ourselves (plonked on the table) and we had to ask for a cooler... she was quiet young, but I suggest I think there is a gap in the training for customer service. Unfortunately we felt unable to leave a tip. Not sure if we’d be rushing back, and concerned that at peak times the place would struggle.

Very poor service. Dark table in a corner- Cold so left coats on. Forgotten about after seated. Another table seated in area and they were served with drinks before us- after 15 minutes of waiting. I had to go and ask for service. Starter lukewarm and spoon had short hair/fluff on. Main meals- ok but short hair in meal as well. Looked like towel/cloth hair.

Nice food, nice drinks also. Felt the service could be better, felt a little rushed to get ordered but then food took 45 mins to arrive (in a very empty restaurant!). We were left with empty glasses for a good 15 mins before someone noticed and when I ordered a cocktail the server didn't know what it was. As we were leaving there was a table of 4 having bigger issues also. I'm a manager in a high end restaurant myself so have a good knowledge of what is right and wrong. All in all, think improvement of service and knowledge of the menu would be an advantage for your waiting staff.

Food was fairly good but we waited over an hour for our main course to arrive. Table opposite us waited so long that they left before their food arrived.

The girl who served us was lovely. The problem was the service, we waited around an hour for our mains to come and then waited a long time for the dessert menu and then a long time for the desserts. The food was lovely though.

All the girls were friendly but all 3 courses took a while to come out. But once they did they were lovely so worth waiting. Wings were good value for money but not liver or pork Bon Bon. Nothing to them really.

Very unhappy with level of food and service was extremely slow. We had a toddler with us who was getting tired and impatient and hungry waiting for her food. When our food came out I found it dry. I asked for additional sauce by the time it reached the table we asked for the food to be taken away as we weren’t happy at all. My toddlers dessert cake out and the cookies were actually burnt you could taste burnt chocolate. We complained and were told to email in so we were forced to pay for a meal and service we were not happy with. Disgusting poor service and management will not be returning or recommending. It was a Saturday evening and it was not busy and service was very poor! Can’t imagine how bad it must be when it is busy!!!

Food not good. No atmosphere. Not very busy but our group had to sit in conservatory by the windows and it was freezing. Not a very enjoyable experience at all.

The boneless chicken wings tasted burnt. Service was a bit slow considering it was quiet when we went. Cutlery was dirty. And to top it off it was cold in the restaurant.
