Once out our food arrived (which was lukewarm at best) we had no cutlery and again had to find a member of staff to resolve this. There was no atmosphere, the table next to us was also complaining about their food throughout the meal. We then reserved an email to say we were no shows to our booking. Won’t be going back anytime soon.

She didn't ask about our dietary needs or allergies and we ordered a shooter only to be told there weren't any left. Now surely if only one ingredient was out of stock, an alternative could be suggested? Also we ordered a second cocktail but it took so long to arrive, we just left before we'd been served it as we got bored of waiting. I notice we'd been charged for it though! They took it off the bill no problem and apologised. The rest of the staff were great.

Downside: out drinks came AFTER the food. We waited a while for our drinks. We were charged £10 service charge for 3 of us....but yet had no service. Female server never came to ask how the meal was and as above, drinks came nearly 10 mins after our meal even though we ordered drinks first. Ill still return because the food is incredible

My brother was also not very impressed with his burger for the money. I wont be coming back here.

We had to ask where the drinks were and they still didn’t arrive. Wasn’t a complicated order, 2 cokes and a lemonade. It’s a shame as the food is so tasty, also feel it’s a bit cheeky that they automatically add the service charge on the bill. If the service was excellent it would be worth it.
