lovely food, good sized portions and very good service. Only down side is that the table for 2 are too close to each other, you feel that the other table can hear everything your talking about.

    Service was really bad and food not warm. Considering how many tables were being used and the number of staff working the service should have been a hell of a lot better. Ordered wine to have with my meal and didn't get it until we had finished!!

    Unfortunately the overall service was not great and not memorable. We had about 6 different people waiting on us so the service journey was very broken. The sad part is that none of these waiters/waitresses actually made us want to leave a tip! Which is crazy. Maybe if we'd of had the same waitress from start we would feel differently.
    We gave our drinks order and unfortunately she forgot a drink and we assumed she had gone to grab it but never came back with it so we had to remind her. We waited a long time in between courses, considering the restaurant was only half full I would have hoped for faster service. The main course was lovely despite the long wait for it. When ordering desert, one of our group ordered a sundae, we waited about 20-25 minutes for these deserts . However once they arrived the sundae was topped with runny whipped cream so it fell and dripped all down the side of the glass. The waiter whisked it away to make another from fresh but just scooped the cream off the top and refreshed with fresh cream. It's a shame when you can see the waiters making your desert from your table..... During our service as well the table next to us had 5 side orders of chips and onion rings forgotten and had to ask for them again! One staff member was also dining at a table nearby us, the staff member who started our service then left us after orders were taken. Not really the service you would expect from such a well known restaurant that I've always really enjoyed dining at and so have my friends. However your Braintree branch has put us off future consideration there for dinner.
