Turned up early for our meal to be told the restaurant did not have our booking. The waiting staff were quite cheeky until evidence was shown to the manager that he had accepted our reservation. I now see from other reviews that this is not...More

I was so upset that although I had booked a table ( in person) 10 days previously, they had no record of my booking! The service was very slow and not the best when they deemed to serve us. They didn’t have the wine or...More

Have been previously and it was excellent, was disappointed to some degree last night, drinks service was very slow. I know it was busy, but maybe extra staff should help out! I had prawns on skewers which didn’t taste of anything and served with vegetables...More

Had a booking for 9:30. Were seated in a dark corner and then completely ignored for 45 minutes. I complained twice to the waiter who shrugged and said he couldn’t help and that it was up to his boss. Other people arriving after us were...More

Was sat upstairs on the terrace , which was very nice on a summer evening. We were lucky that we did not have a smoker near us. ( why can't smokers just pop outside for a cigarette?? ) Service is very disorganised. They are trying...More
