    Not the best dining experience. Booking was made over a week in advance but no table ready on arrival (restaurant was not full but staff had to clear and clean a table while we waited). Waiting staff took a while to visit table to take drinks order whilst we browsed menus and then took a long time to return to take food order. The waiting continued for food to arrive eventually reaching our table 50 minutes after time booked. When food arrived one dish was only partly warm so had to return it (may have sat in counter whilst other dishes being prepared?). Staff changed dish but took another 10 mins to arrive (told would be 5 mins ( so unsure of why a 50 min delay in receiving initial order?!). Meal was ok but not special and second round of drinks took a time to order as no waiting staff visible. Although the restaurant was not busy it seemed as though there were insufficient waiting staff to cope and only one chef on duty who appeared unable to schedule meals. Disappointing performance by all concerned from arrival to departure.

    Glad I pre booked our table for 6:30pm on Saturday evening as there was a queue of walk ins with a 2hr wait! Choice of food on the menu extensive, good standard, service quick but one reservation - my partner was right in that the skin on fries side order totally over priced at £3 for a small portion.

    The food was lovely but when I was served my steak it came without the onion rings and corn of the cob which was on the menu, so had to call waitress over and then wait for the rest of my food.
