We attended the restaurant with our American client for lunch and a more relaxed area to discuss business. The food and atmosphere were excellent however the service was disappointing. One of the servers decided to put away cutlery in the drawer right next to our table so noisily that we had to stop our conversation until she had finished, I appreciate it needed to be put away but it was like she was literally throwing it in to make as much noise as possible. She could clearly see we had stopped for her but continued throwing them in in her own time. Also our starter plates were cleared away from us while our client was still trying to finish hers. This was very awkward and made her feel she needed to rush. Overall the experience was very good, jus a couple of let downs.

It was a busy day, short of staff so slow service. However food was good (fries could have been better) and waiter/barman was great and apologised for delay. Will be returning as a lovely place to dine.

Unfortunately the Yorkshire puddings and the beef were very over cooked and difficult to digest.

The service was unapologetically slow. It took an embarrassingly long time to order, and then a hugely long time for each course to come out, and then we were left for ages before we gave up and paid the bill at the bar. None of the waiting staff acknowledged this or apologised for it. It felt like a case of heads buried in sand, crossing fingers and hoping we wouldn’t notice how slow everything was. Outside of that the food was even better than usual, and your usual standards are exceptional. We’ll definitely be back, but will hope things aren’t so painful on the service front!
