    Went for my birthday, I know from recent reports standards we not the same as before covid . Starter came late missed out one person. Main meal fish and batter not cooked had to return. Charged on bill for both. Had to ask for drinks as a gesture even though this spoilt the evening. The staff were nice but the manager is non client facing with no idea how to treat guests and charm back service levels. The taxi driver said standards had fallen too. This is second time of issues , shame but will not be returning.. my partner is refusing and so are my friends ...

    I much preferred the Summer menu and was looking forward to ordering the seafood risotto. Unfortunately the menu had changed and most options were spicy and/or had coconut added, sadly I do not like spicy food hence I struggled to choose a main dish. The service is fabulous as is the ambience.

    Second time here and I think it will be the last. Menu was limited, food was very average and tables too close together. Waitress that served us was also incredibly miserable. She asked me how my food was I said ok and then she just walked off. Finished drinks weren’t cleared and the wine was just plonked down. First time I’ve been somewhere and not left a tip due to the service. Overall very disappointing. Potential to be amazing due to the beautiful setting but just wasn’t good enough in my opinion

    Not a great experience compared to other places we dine in. The head of house directed us to the table, the waitress was blocking the path to the table but she squeezed through and slapped the menus down on the table and then walked off. We had to wait until the path was clear to sit down. Lacking personal and engagement skills, not what you want when you first arrive. The waitress was pleasant enough but felt like we were just a number, wasn't attentive or engaging, like she couldnt wait to finish her shift! My mum ordered a tomato bruschetta to start, the tomatoes were almost in quarters, piled high on top of a slightly burnt piece of toast. Just a bit off putting! She could only manage half. I ordered scallops which were cooked perfect, there was some sort of fried pastry, unsure of what it was, didnt really taste of anything other than fat. For mains, ordered fish and chips, the fish was massive, came in a really thick light coloured batter, which had a peculiar taste, the batter was removed to eat the fish on its own, the chips had a weird taste, not sure if there was something going on with the fat that day but it certainly ruined our food. On top of the fish there was a buttered piece of bread, just thought that was lacking finesse, like we were in a wetherspoons! The malayan Chicken was nice, apart from the flat bread which was like a cracker! I dont mean to sound like a food critique but we love food, we love good cooked food and will pay the price if it is well executed, unfortunately this did not meet our standards especially for the price we paid. The waitress didn't ask how the food was, no even comment when collecting the plates of dissected food. We came home feeling disappointed and totally off eating for the rest of the day as we were just really put off by the food and the tainted batter/ fat/ chips.

    Lovely atmosphere, food was good however my sirloin was a little small and the I could taste the fat on the chips which is why I’m hesitant to give 5 stars Staff were attentive and relaxed - didn’t rush us despite it being very busy

    Food was excellent, our lady server was attentive and helpful. Main problem was the manager who was supposed to be sorting out our payment of part vouchers and card. It seemed to be too much of an issue so he left us waiting at least 20 minutes. He then went to wait on tables without even apologising for the delay. I had to ask twice what was happening before another member of staff eventually sorted it out. Really bad customer service from the manager. Spoiled a lovely birthday lunch.
