    The waiter couldn't have been more polite but he warned us there was a slight delay with food. However it was 45 mins before our starter of simple bread and oils arrived and this was after we had to ask. 30 minutes later we were still waiting for our main course so gave up and left hangry!

    Valentines was nearly a flop!

    Once myself and my girlfriend arrived to the restaurant we found out from the waiter that our table had been double booked and we would be put to the bottom of the waiting list.
    I said that was unacceptable as I had booked the table for that specific time as we had a cinema booking afterwards.

    Luckily they managed to sort a table for us but advised us to only have mains as food was taking a long time to come out, the food once out was lovely and thankfully the evening went well in the end.

    Unfortunately there were not enough staff to serve customers ( manager, one waiter and one person in the kitchen) and service was very slow. We were at the restaurant for 2 course lunch for 2h20min but one of my friends was on her lunch break from work so she ended up being very late back to work ( despite the fact we asked her lunch to be sereved quicker). The prawns were under cooked- the food was rushed.
    The manager appologised for a slow service but the whole experience was disappointing.

    Restaurant nice and spacious - not too close to the table next door like some. Service was a little slow at times, although overall was fine. Food was very good. We had a range of starters and mains, but couldn't manage dessert! Arancini were excellent. Also had garlic bread with cheese (lovely taste and not too heavy). Can't remember all we had, but everything was good and we cleared as many plates as we had room for! Draft beer was not one we had previously heard of, but it was very nice. Will definitely go again!

    Meal was nice, chips were not hot so had to be replaced, starter was lovely but wrong one! Which my daughter only told me about later! My desert although lovely tasting was poorly presented, I expect a tiramisu to have dusting over it and the plate, not just looking like it's dumped on a plate! Waiter was very good and helpful but very busy, first table we sat at was very cold and I asked to move to somewhere warmer, which they did straight away.
