    Would like to say found the whole dining experience very uncomfortable the temperature in the restaurant was way too hot couldn't wait to get out into the fresh air had some barbecue ribs which to be honest have had better tasting ribs for £4 from Morrisons they were very bland and the barbecue sauce was too runny my husband had a very average chilli and with 1 drink each we thought the £50 bill was way overpriced

    Excellent as always. We were attending a concert at the Arena so needed quick service and as usual, you delivered.

    Visit start was very disappointing the table we were placed at was not suitable. Requested another table, a booth which was perfect for us as a family to share a special evening and to be able to talk to our daughter who we were visiting. I was told the table l wanted was for six people and placed in another table which l was not satisfied with to then watch the table l would have preferred and that was free at the time we had pre-booked, offered to a party of 3. Very disappointed having pre-booked not to have that acknowledged. However, that said our server was excellent as was the food was very good great for sharing and good value.
