We got to the restaurant at the time we said we would and were shown to a table very quickly. Staff were ok not that friendly but ok but they did not explain that we would have to pay for the a l carte meals we were told we would have to pay the extra. When we finish the meal and got the bill we found that we had been charged for everything with the exception of two meals and deserts. So what should have been a low key quite birthday experience turned out to be quite an expensive evening the bill coming to £140.00 with a small tip plus the wowcher £29.99 . We still have one one wowcher left as they would not even accept that as part payment .What a con as we were not told or explained when we were looking at the menus. The food however was A1 so I cannot fault that

The food was nice and there was a good selection on the menu but the wait to be served and between courses (40+ minutes) was absolutely ridiculous - I was so hungry by the time my starter arrived I wolfed it down and didn't really enjoy it. Then, most heart breaking of all - I didn't have time for dessert because they'd taken so long with the other courses! So if you're going for a long leisurely meal then yes this would be OK but if you have plans for afterwards then no, I'd give this place a miss.
