    Good location, shown to our table quickly. Excellent choice of food, very good service even though the place was busy. Attentive Staff who keep checking if everything was okay or if we needed anything else.

    Enjoyed our meal although I would have preferred ice cream in a dish not a cardboard cup! Waitress was friendly and helpful in spite of pressure of busy restaurant.

    Always been happy here in the past but this visit was a disaster. On arrival we were sent downstairs because we had pre-booked (1st time). Staff downstairs had no knowledge of the particular “deal” we had booked (2 courses and drink for £12.99( and we were given the wrong menu. Took ages to sort this out and we still had not received our starters after 45 minutes. Had to keep reminding waiter that we were in a hurry because we had theatre tickets but to no avail. Mains arrived with minutes to spare, so we had to bolt it down. Expressed our extreme dissatisfaction and requested a discount. 25% discount was agreed but bill showed excessive overcharge, even with discount! Left cash and ran ( literally) to theatre. No tip, I’m afraid, as undeserved. Food was okay but ruined due to speed at which we had to eat it. Moral: don’t book. Just turn up and eat upstairs. IC.

    Overall, we were made to feel like second class citizens in a poorly managed restaurant. When we arrived for our booked table, the waiter who was sat on a chair with his elbows on the counter just grunted to us to go downstairs and find a table. Once seated, in very worn and dilapidated seats, we showed the offer to the waiter, who got the manager. The manager told us the free drink part of the offer didn’t apply to that restaurant. However, after i showed him the booking on my phone, he grudgingly agreed to a glass of house wine only. The starter was acceptable, but mains were just about passable. Roast potatoes were actually warm boiled potatoes and the creamy mushroom sauce was very watery. There was no mayo on the burger and the burger bun was toasted to a tough chewy texture. We tried to order cheesecake from the 3 choices of dessert, but were told that the 97 cheese cakes available were pre booked by a group of 97 people! No alternative was offered apart from the remaining 2 choices. When we went to pay by credit card, the waiter preselected the button on the machine to add a tip! All in all, a very disappointing experience.
