Found a hair in my food and when I complained the colleague I complained to gave me a dirty look Asif to say I was wrong for complaining when it definitely wasn’t my hair, they didn’t even apologise about my situation just offered to replace it or take it of the bill.

Over an hours wait for food. Made the manager aware and he dealt with it appropriately. The young girls who work there a couple of them were quite rude when we raised the issue. We wouldn’t return unfortunately

I felt as though the drinks were poor for their price. I paid £10 for a cocktail and it was not very big and not presented well. The photo room was a little grubby.

Average at best. We arrived at our time and it was closed?! We had to wait for them to open up despite our table being booked for 5pm (We didn’t sot down until 5:20pm)
We were then told we couldn’t order food for 1/2 hour- no reason given & they couldn’t accommodate for any dietary requirements. I ordered a Frozen Strawberry Daquiri & got told it wouldn’t be frozen. We took our photos & left. Shame, because it’s a beautiful venue when your inside.

Brought my food out and I was waiting over 5 mins for cutlery, I asked the same girl twice who didn’t come back. Eventually got the attention of someone else who was very nice. The heat was way too much no air con or cooling stystem. Also there was an ant infestation below my feet in the floor boards so I had to put my feet on the chair opposite me. Portions are small, wouldn’t revisit.

Came here Saturday the 17th July for my sister in laws birthday. We walked in and it was really hot there was no aircon or any air conditioning what do ever. Didn’t enjoy ourselves and didn’t stay long as we found it so uncomfortable and whilst we were eating dripping in sweat. We really didn’t expect it to be like that as most places are air conditioned and the food just wasn’t very nice the sweet potatoes fried were soggy. Not impressed

So disappointed. We had booked standard seating, we were taken into the garden which was like a green house, no exaggeration it was so warm and it was near enough empty… wonder why! We weren’t offered the choice of outside or inside seating. I went to one of the girls and asked if we could move as we couldn’t sit there and she said she asked us when we came in if we had a preference (she didn’t as no one in their right mind would want to sit out there on a day like yesterday). My friends said we might aswell stay for one, so we ordered drinks and eventually food, the drinks were awful for £9 or whatever they are, it was a rip off. I had Mac n cheese it was nice but a small portion for £4. I asked the waitress if we could move and she repeated what the women said and said she would of asked you on the door (implying we were lying!!). Their excuse was ‘because of covid once you are sat at a table you can’t move from a different table’. What? So after we had finished with the table no one sat on it for the rest of the night then? Doubt it! Didn’t make sense and was a very poor excuse. So disappointed as it had been bigged up so much on Instagram but we won’t be returning. Should of listened to previous bad reviews from friends. So sad as it has such big potential, we could see so many people leaving before they’ve even sat down or after one drink because of the seating arrangements. Real shame.

A nice place, something a little different to your average resturant. However, we had to wait a good 20 minutes before we got served (that was after calling someone over). Food was delicious!

Friend had a fish allergy so they refused to serve our table as they said they do alot of mixing with the meats which is poor! They wouldn't even serve us drinks as they couldn't be sure clean hands would be making the drinks apparently. After a long drive from another city excited to dine then to be told the above #not happy. Also they have a food rating of 2 ! Avoid#

Really great thank you. Your staff were really lovely and welcoming, I asked if there was anything close to sex on the beach cocktail on the drinks menu and although there wasn’t, they did go out their way to make it for me which is amazing! Thanks guys keep up the good work can’t wait to come back and eat everything again.

Waiters were lovely but service was quite slow, had to ask for the bill 3 times and food took some time to arrive. Ordered the burger with the pink bun and was not informed they were waiting on a delivery so was disappointed when the burger came out and was not pink. Portion size was smaller than expected but the food was absolutely delicious. Got some lovely photos from the photo rooms which I think makes the whole experience. Overall was a good experience and would go back, maybe after Covid so to make sure the restaurant is not understaffed.

Food was really nice don’t get me wrong but the service was awful, we only had a 1 hour and half sitting which is fine sat there for about 20 minutes for someone to take our drinks order and food, then took ages for our food to come, had to ask all the time if I could order another drink then when I did ask i was waiting for half an hour for my drink and had to keep asking them where it was for them to then come over with the bill and tell us our time was up! Service was honestly awful I had just 2 drinks in the time I was there.

Terrible service waited 40 mins to be asked for a drink then another 20 mins for it to come, it was nice for pictures but I couldn’t wait to get out of there and spending £95 on the day it wasn’t very well spend service and staff were so poor.

I looked forward to going to 202 for a while. Unfortunately it didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Overall it was a good experience but could nearly have been so much better. I ordered the beef burgers as we wanted pink buns specifically. We weren’t told they didn’t have these so they came without, no mention from the waiter at anytime. Same with the vaccine cocktail for the syringe. The plates took quite a while to clear and at the start of my meal I asked for sauce which the waitress said she will and then never brought them. Also they didn’t have the pudding we wanted so there was quite a lot out of stock, the music was good the food was decent apart from the popcorn cauliflower being cold. I would try again in w few months and hope for a bit better
