The door security man sat us at our table. No menus given to us. Tables not set. When ordering food only 3 burgers and some Tapas left. Ordered 2 tapas and 2 sides and my partner ordered burger. Brought out prawns instead of fish goujons. When we told the waiter they had brought out the wrong tapas he replied and said yes it’s because we don’t have the fish. It would have been nice to have been told they didn’t have the fish when ordering as we would have ordered something else. However we did have a free drink because of this. Just seems like a waste of time. We travelled miles from Merthyr to have a plate of nachos and prawns which we didn’t even want.

Sunday roast was lovely but the service was extremely slow. Our waiter was really nice but as she was the only one serving, we waited a long time for drinks, the bill etc.

All great but please sort the height of the seats out compared to the tables . It’s really uncomfy either the tables need to be lowered or chairs made higher. 😉

Had a lovely evening with friends - unfortunately delayed from a Christmas celebration due to personal reasons. We all enjoyed our meals, I think there were some slight substitutions, but we were advised when provided with the menus. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. the guys behind the bar were great! Despite a busy evening due to an event the orders were being fulfilled quickly and with a smile. Only feedback would be that people were still sat eating food at around 9pm when the lights were dimmed and the music turned up, so conversation became a little more difficult, but that is nit picking!

No parking facilities. We were running late and rang the restaurant 4 times to advise them and each time there was no answer! Was busy when we arrived and there was only 1 person serving behind the bar and she disappeared to go and speak to someone at a table. Eventually after grabbing a member of staff who was walking around and then being seated service was good and food was ok. Sat by the window which was quite cold on this evening. Probably wouldn’t go again due to lack of parking and not an awful lot of choice on the menu.
