    Food was lovely but we had a long wait. We had to be at a concert and leave by 7. They asked us to preorder because they knew it would be busy. We got there at half 5 and they wanted to bring food straight out- great! But they didn’t. We didn’t get mains until 6:20 and they took so long to bring puddings after that (part of the precooked kids meal) . I appreciate that the restaurant is busy as it’s next to the arena but would have thought this meant they were used to concert nights. I had arranged for the party of ten and it was stressful ensuring everyone got there on time.

    I had made a booking on line to take my husband and two grandchildren for a pre theatre meal. We were shown straight to our table and asked if we would like a drink while we looked at the menu. The restaurant was very busy but we did not have to wait long. We ordered a set meal for the youngest child. This was good value. It must have been good as he ate all three courses and did not leave a thing. The eldest ordered an adult margarita pizza and my husband had a chicken pizza. I opted for king prawn tagetelli which the menu said was 600 calories. All three meals were excellent and my husband said it was the best pizza he had eaten in a long while. The only bug bare was the cost of the drinks. My husband had 2 large bottles of Italian larger and it was 5 pence short of £14. I could not fault the food and the service was very good.

    Good food. Great waiter. Poor drinks service as the drinks waitress slopped my daiquiri over the top of the glass when she put it down and I had to ask 3 times for a serviette to mop it up. They brought the next one in a tumbler, which I found poor.

    They messed up the orders, bringing them sfter an hour and a half with a few dishes overcooked. Nobody likes dry burned lasagne. At least they could apologise.

    It’s a nice friendly place, with delicious food. Unfortunately, they didn’t have what i asked for, something that happened again previously, so i had to order something else. But overall it’s a great place and they serve the best garlic bread!

    The quantity of green beans was ridiculously small. The plate for the main course was cold, though fortunately the food on it was really hot. Ironically, the dessert plate was warm, which caused the ice cream to melt. All of the food was excellent. I would not pay full price at this restaurant- it is far too high. We used Tastecard plus gift card obtained at a 20% discount from Tesco, which made it reasonable value.

    We arrived at 5.40pm seated straight away. Ordered 2 cocktails but weren’t ready to order food. When she can back. We ordered food. The meatballs in tomato sauce starter was deliscious! I ordered the chicken and prosciutto salad and again, it was light, full of flavour. After our mains, we waited at least half an hour for our plates to be cleared. The restaurant was at half capacity I would say. The waitress and even the hostess who seated us walked by numerous of times but didn’t clear our plates. My friend had to go upto a waitress while she was heading to the toilet to ask for the desert menu and our plates to be cleared. My friend came back, I then went to the toilet and I arrived back to the table. The plates had been cleared. It was another 5 minutes before the waitress came back with the dessert menus. We ordered another drink while we were able to get her attention. She came back to us promptly and we ordered dessert. Another 5 minutes passed the drinks we ordered arrived. I ordered the strawberry cooler softtail. It didn’t come with any strawberries, Rosemary or cucumber! It looked nothing like the picture on the menu. I didn’t dare ask for the missing elements for this drink as it would most likely arrive after the dessert and we needed to leave at 9pm for the train. It’s a shame not to get a drink, especially a cocktail how it is described. There was no mention of “sorry we’re out of cucumber, rosemary” Our desserts took quite some time to come. We nearly finished our drinks while waiting for dessert. In the end we had to get the same hostesses attention to ask where the dessert was. Came immediately, she did apologise. The ice cream that came with it was half melted. The chocolate brownie deliscious. We finished at 8.20 It was 8.45pm to see a waitress to ask for the bill. The bill came, paid straight away so we didn’t miss the train. Over 3 hours for 2 people is very slow service. Very disappointed.
