    Food as always was lovely, although not hot just warm, which after 10 minutes was cold. As it was Mother's Day, very busy so I didn't complain, but no one enjoys eating cold chips. Table was not clean on arrival, although set for us, so I had to request that it was cleaned. The young lady came with cloth and sprayed the table while we sat there, which went on to my silk jacket. I called later to ask what was in the spray as I could not get it out with a sponge, they said it was an ordinary all purpose cleaner. I pushed the issue as they firstly denied any responsibility because of insurance cover, I spoke to the manager mike, who then agreed that it should not have happened and agreed to pay for dry cleaning. I left a large tip at the time of leaving, which I always do, but the experience could have been a lot better.
