    There was a bit misunderstanding with staff. Been served by 3 different waiters so food and drinks were coming late because they were misscommunicating to each other. Other than that it was really nice

    Nice atmosphere, special menu was excellent and good value including the drinks. The starter of lamb and scallops was [particularly good. We had an extra glass of wine each which was quite expensive though

    Mains were good We had three different puddings and none of them were particularly enjoyable, clearly premade and just finished off in the restaurant but not to a good standard. The bill when it came had itemised all that we had had and then applied a discount, it did not appear to have taken into account the special offer correctly, it would have been far better if the bill had shown £19.95 x3 It felt like they were trying to get more money out of you, as the bill was incorrect in the end. It was a shame as we had a good evening.
