We were the only guests in the entire restaurant. I thought Wine Chambers was a "high end" restaurant, but the person behind the bar was wearing a hoodie, and the waitress was too casual, calling us "yous" Food disappointing too. heavy and stodgy meals with...More

Nice food but poor service and no atmosphere. We were one of only two lunchtime tables and our waiter, while a nice guy really had no idea about how to manage the lunch or service. Will not be returning.

To be fair we used a GrabOne so it was cheap. The place was dead. Service was very slow. Took us 20 mins for starters and 1 hour for main. We were the ONLY people in the place so they weren’t rushed off their feet....More

Look the dinner wasn’t bad but it didn’t impress. We got breads to start and they didn’t seem freshly made. We both got the pork belly for mains and the pork was beautifully cooked but had no crispy crackling. Who serves pork belly like that?...More
