The food is well prepared but we felt it should have been clear that it was a completely vegetarian menu and that the starter options were so limited! Is only good value if you don’t eat protein!

Visited the restaurant for our wedding anniversary. Greeted by friendly staff and had same friendly service throughout the evening. Food was lovely and all courses were served very quickly. Great atmosphere with live music. Will definitely be returning.

Really sorry to be writing this but we were disappointed. 6 of us all friends decided to dine after thoroughly enjoying the Houdini escape room..
I booked both the experience and the table online quite a few weeks ago.
On arrival at the restaurant we were told our booking had been missed so we were in the private room (that I understands costs quite a bit more) so was a nice ‘upgrade’ or so we thought, however we were left for ages, had to go to the bar to order our drinks and had to ask for our order to be taken. Our table was at 7.30 and all only having one course were still eating at 9 as we waited so long for the food.
Two different steaks were ordered, a sirloin and a fillet and the waitress arrived and said sirloin so was put in front of my friend, he started to eat and when the second steak arrived we realised the waitress had been wrong and our friend was now tucking into my other half’s ‘more expensive, different cooked’ fillet! Plus the ‘real’ sirloin was not cooked right.
My pasta was ok but what could go wrong with spaghetti covered in pesto sauce which I’m sure was out of a jar and not fresh!
The pizza ordered was actually inedible- aneamic, hard on the outside, soggy in the middle and hardly had any Parma ham plus had half a bag of rocket and huge thick slices of ‘not that fresh’ tomatoes dumped on top, it was so disgusting that rightly so my friend didn’t eat it and wasn’t going to pay for it.
One steak was ordered with pepper sauce (tiny jug for £3.50) the other with blue, both came out the same!
No one came to talk to us or take more drinks orders.
I was told it’s always busy Fridays and Saturdays so if the case then where were the staff? As we didnt get any great customer service at all.
For the price of the meals and the fact it’s an Italian steak house for the steaks to be wrong and the pizza to be horrendous we unfortunately will not be visiting again.
We are Kegworth locals do such a shame as it’s our local restaurant.

Don’t let the big brand name fool you. This restaurant offers grumpy service, mediocre food and an uncomfortable atmosphere. Plus, it’s overpriced.
Please avoid this restaurant. There are plenty of good pubs etc nearby. Don’t take a risk on Marco Pierre White’s vanity project.

No ambiance whatsoever. Was given a voucher as a gift for an afternoon tea. Completely unremarkable. Totally unforgettable. I’ve had the experience of 3 afternoon teas in the last 3 months for various celebrations, this one comes bottom of the list by far. Needs a re-vamp to make it uniquely New York Italian. Marco Pierre White by name only.

The restaurant was very quiet although we were not offered drinks until we chose our meal. It was expensive especially the drinks. All food was bought out together which was good. Staff need to smile a bit more. Food was tasty and cooked well slightly small portions though. Yes I would revisit.

A good meal & visit however not quite as good as usual, everything seemed a little rushed and hectic especially considering the restaurant was not too busy.
Everything except the food service time that is as although our order was taken swiftly the service was noticeably slower than normally received. Drinks were good, just the wait on the food a little slow for what was ordered.

Very very quiet at lunch. No atmosphere, perhaps ambient music when it's especially quiet. Food came out questionably quickly. Mayo tasted like it was off/been stood a while in pre-prepared servings.

Service was terrible, we waited 30 mins for our drinks & to order food & this only happened after we flagged a waiter down. Later we ordered another round of drinks & waited. When we chased we were told they weren’t even in the system! Food after ordering was delivered quickly & was really good but unfortunately was thrown at us by the waitress & she departed so quickly we didn’t even have chance to ask for sauces. The people on the surrounding tables reported the same issues & even the head waiter started referring to it as faulty towers. It appeared that the larger parties in the restaurant were given much better treatment.

After my main course was taken away, no offer of a dessert menu, waited 15 min in the end i had to get a waitress attention to ask for one. Once the menu eas brought over had to wait another 15 minutes before i ordered n then took 15 min for the dessert to arrive which was just ice cream. The restaurant wasnt busy so dont understand why no one acknowledged me. In the process of this all i wanted to order another glass of wine but no one seem interested in taking another drinks order.

Good food at a reasonable price, I had the ribs which were well cooked and had a surprising amount of meat on them. Staff are all very professional and look the part, couldn't ask for more service wise. The area was reasonable quiet where I was sat which was ideal as I was staying for business and had work to do.

Great choice on menu and very reasonable prices for both food and drinks

Table ready for us on arrival
Lovely choice of pizzas with quite different toppings did not manage to fit in one of the nice sounding desserts

I expected the food to be nicer, seemed like a 'posh' restaurant serving Frankie and Bennies food. The service was good, and the food arrived fast. The dessert was the nicest Banoffee Pie was yummy, but over all the cost with regards to what we got seemed a little over priced.

Main disappointment, was that the whole hotel did not sell beer, as in bitter, not even bottled?

Went on a Sunday lunch time. Very few tables in and all spread out so felt empty. Until a rowdy afternoon tea party of women got sat next to us. So much for the romantic birthday lunch id planned....
Service was poor. Plenty of staff but all more concerned with banging around setting tables and preparing for future services rather than focussing on the customers they currently had. Bar staff couldn't be bothered either. The 2 cocktails i ordered were barely garnished and looked and tasted pathetic/weak.
Food was good. Starters were really delicious but small portions. The burgers were far too large for me to eat without making a complete mess they were huge!!! Desserts were over the top indulgent and great!!
I would go back here but probably for dinner only as lunch time was a disappointment.

We went on Mother’s Day before booking asked if there was a vegetarian selection was assured there was. Only one vegetarian rice dish available which had peas and beans in which it don’t like so I had to have the rice dish and remove the peas and beans. On a normal day it might have been a different story. The staff were brilliant though could not fault them. Drinks were extremely expensive.

We attended for a very good value Mother’s Day lunch. Food was good although not amazing. Restaurant was well presented with a good atmosphere. Waiting staff unfortunately let the place down essentially as there were too many of them with nothing to do so they were in groups talking. When we called one over to serve us she then asked one of the other ones to come and take our order and this was repeated multiple times.

A quality experience which when compared to run of the mill restaurants could have been a little better. The food was great, the service was great, the ambience and service is great but it was lacking that something special which I was hoping for. I'd go again, perhaps when I'm feeling a bit more flush.

My first visit to this restaurant for lunch . They do a special fixed price lunch menu which I’d looked at on line . We were never offered this menu , only the expensive a la Carte menu . No other diners were offered this menu either.
I was very embarrassed having to request the cheaper menu and totally disagree with this sales tactic .
The food was actually very good but I won’t be returning for the reasons stated .
