Waited for one hour for main course which was cold and obviously had been reheated.
2 staff members were really lovely and helpful but unfortunately 1 staff member was rude and argumentative
We left without eating main meal due to attitude of this staff member

Half price food offer made the meal excellent value. Quality of food good only downside had to try and get attention from the waiting staff as weren’t asked if we wanted a pudding or any more drinks

The offer of half price was very tempting. But unfortunately the food wasn’t even worth half the price. We were told there was only skinny fries but these dragged the meal down to lower than McDonald’s level.
Disappointed

Had a lovely evening for my husbands birthday. The food was delicious I had salmon, hubby had seabass. We both had desserts which were lovely. Even better when the bill came. Half price off all food in January. What a bonus to the end of a great night . Would definitely eat there again even without half price

Took 3 hours for food. The food was almost inedible due to the amount of garlic. A whole intact clove of garlic was taken from the pizza.

We were seated on time at 8pm but by 9pm we hadn't even had starters. We had two very young children with us who were extremely patient and well behaved but the time it took for food was atrocious.

Very disappointing, waited 45 minutes for starters, which where not of the usual standard or size, waited nearly another hour for mains, again not to usual standard. Im guessing as they have January offers on they are busy and cant cope with the demand and quality has slipped.

The restaurant is local to us and is where we went on our first date. We love it.
It was our anniversary and they were doing a 50% off deal.
Unfortunately I don't think they were prepared as when we got there at 7pm they had ran out of a lot on the menu.
And waiting time for food was long.
We ordered one thing and had to change it twice.
We got our starters 30 minutes after ordering and our meals 45 minutes after we had finsihed starters.
Our dessert we waited 20 minutes for.
It was very busy the staff were stressed there were a lot of people complaining.
The atmosphere was not very pleasant at all.
Overall we didn't have a problem with our food apart from 1 of the steaks not being cooked to our liking but we didn't want to send it back as we would have been waiting a longer time for the food.

We will. Go back to this restaurant as it is one of our favourites and it holds a special place in out heart.
But I hope last night is a learning curve for them and they get things sorted for future visits.

Waited a long time for food and when it ca
me noticed portion much smaller pizza half the size steak came with no mushrooms or tomatoes as usual and chips greasy. Reflects the half price offer Would rather have paid full price and had usual good service and full portions not just us that thought this people on next table complaining too and there’s was burnt. And found out off a friend waited 3 hours for their meal and same smaller portion. Not really a good deal

The restaurant itself is lovely, nice location, layout and decor is nice and tasteful. Food was delicious, only thing i didnt particularly enjoy as much was the sticky toffee pudding i had for dessert, it was very rich and needed more ice cream or a different accompaniment to cut through all of the rich sauce it was covered in. Service was fab and overall a lovely meal experience.

The night started with the waitress asking my 18 year old son for id in front of the whole restaurant which totally embarrassed him even though when in a restaurant persons under 18 are allowed a alcoholic drink if with a person over 18. The starters then took an hour to arrive. The mains took a further 45 minutes and the food was terrible My sons pizza was over cooked and dry. My wife’s garlic bread was undercooked and raw and the risotto was standby and tasteless. This is possibly the worst meal I have ever had. We will not be returning .

Food was absolutely lovely although a very long wait. Empty drink glasses were took from our table mid meal but not asked if we wanted another drink, had to try to get someone's attention. Dessert menu was given to us but no one returned to take our order, after 25 minutes we got up to go to bar to pay bill as were sick of waiting any longer.

The food is lovely but the service was terrible. We had our table booked at 4 oclock didnt get our started till 5 and our mains at 6 which they got wrong so we had to wait again. We didnt leave the place till 18.50. We there nearly 3 hours for 3 people. At one point i had to go to the bar and order our drinks as nobody came over. But they did give us our mains for free.
