    Lady who served us was very pleasant and helpful. We ordered an additional plate of vegetables which failed to arrive before ending our dinner. We were offered a complimentary tea/coffee at the end. Don’t think it’s value for money although very flavoursome. Crisp breads were so very hard I could have easily broken a tooth. Like an uncooked poppadum ??

    We attended here on Sunday 26th May. The food wasn't fantastic despite having to wait an hour for each course. The service was horrendous with one girl in particular standing around doing nothing whilst empty plates/ glasses on tables. Our drinks took almost 20mins both times to arrive to the table and having to prompt staff twice for our drinks is unacceptable. I myself work in the industry know what busy shifts are like however, I feel there was no excuse for the service we received on the day. We asked to speak to the manager in which we waiting a further 20 minutes for someone to speak to us.
