    Came in seated and asked to order using app - which took a while to set up - felt like an expensive Witherspoon’s - food came quickly and was quite nice. When drinks arrived I’d asked for large gin and tonic and got two glasses - which on a small table took up a lot of room. Restaurant was cold so decided not to order coffee or dessert- wanted to get out and go home.

    No table service and everything needs to be ordered through their app, it took 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive after ordering through the app. When the drinks did turn up a wine glass had lipstick on it which had to be changed. The app did not match their menus so after a lot of back and forth we ended up ordering the old fashioned way because not everything was on the app. General lack of attentiveness from the staff and whenever we wanted anything I had to physically go up to the bar, this was not too annoying as I still referred this over using the app to order food or drinks. 2nd round of drinks also had a dirty glass and the third had the wrong drink all together. Starters where all acceptable but the mains where bland overall with little seasoning and no sauce at all on any dish that was ordered. Now the real part that was a real slap in the face and put a sour end to the meal. The bill came in at £143.25 with a £16.25 tip already added and included in the bill, we didn't really pause to question the tip and just split the bill regardless of the poor experience and very average food. We asked the waitress to split the bill £73 on the first. The waitress done this and we just both done contactless. Rather than just adding the 25p onto the second half she left the bill short (we did not notice this) Then we had her come back over saying we cannot go as the bill is not closed due to an outstanding 25p, confused i looked at the bill, realised what she had done and just said to take it out of the tip. She left without saying anything shortly followed by her manager returning demanding 25p. At this point i made our experience clear and he still wanted the 25p, i was annoyed at this point and my friend just gave him 50p and we left. To be honest i wish i just got all the tip removed completely and left but we will not be returning to this venue and i would not recommend it to anyone

    The food was lovely but unfortunately the service and restaurant was chaos. No atmosphere just very loud and seating was crammed in. Drink orders took a long time to come through and had to ask numerous people to chase up but our plates were rushed off after each course which made us feel like we had to finish up and go. Really disappointing because the food was really tasty and well done but the service was pretty dreadful so We won’t be returning and wouldn’t recommend it.

    The food took too long to arrive, we had to wait over an hour for the food. I had quiet expectations for the restaurant and was really disappointed. For what we eat I found it was way too expensive and felt the food did not match with hype and menu

    The food was nice and good value for the money. We had our meal and was sitting there having a drink when a manager came over and asked if we had finished. He was rushing us cos there was people waiting. I felt it was really rude of him as we have paid for a meal and we shouldn’t be rushed. Definitely won’t be going back and won’t be recommending to anyone

    Food was so lovely! And the cocktails were delicious however I feel service could have been a little better we only got asked once if we wanted any more drinks so we had to keep asking for them and we never even got offered desserts. But wouldn’t stop me from coming back!

    Food is excellent, however service is terrible. Had to find a menu myself. No one to speak to. Mucking around with a QR code to order. Awful. Will not be returning if this is how they wish to conduct business. When I go to a restuarant I wish to be seated, given a menu, and speak to a human being to order. Food is excellent and lovely place, but need to improve massively on customer service.

    Booked the New Year’s Eve gala. Arrived only to be told on arrival once all dressed up that the live entertainment had been cancelled and the champagne on arrival was nowhere to be seen. Normal menu. Everyone sitting on the app having to order. And told they was understaffed. Literally an awful experience for New Year’s Eve

    Food took 45 minutes to arrive. At the same time as olives and flat bread which we had to chase. One meal had run out wraps so was not completed no alternative was offered. To top it off a 12.5% service charge was applied to a table of 3. The experience was disappointing.

    The food was lovely, however the service was extremely slow, especially as the restaurant was not overly busy. It be took a very long time to be offered drinks, for plates to be cleared, for our order to be taken which is a shame as the food was delicious and wonderfully presented.

    Over one hour until food arrived, a few tables gave up and left! Staff returning to food served tables with order slips?? A service charge was still applied to the bill? No offer of a complimentary drink to offset wait!

    The food was lovely but was made and brought out one plate at a time, there were four of us so by the time the last person received their meal the first person had finished. A very slow service waiting over an hour and tables all around us complaining too. We also received our bill with the drinks more than doubled to what we’d ordered. I personally would not return to this place.

    The food was fine but the service was really poor. The restaurant was relatively busy but not overly so, and the staff were pleasant, we just didn't see them! We waited for drinks and then when our main course came they hadn't cleared the plates from the starter. We had wanted another drink and to order desserts but we couldn't get anyone's attention. It was so bad that when we got the bill ( we got up and went to the till) we asked them to remove the 12.5% service charge. The waitress said the manager had said 'no' so we asked to speak to the manager. He came over chucked a new bill on the table without the service and walked off! Such a shame because the food was fine but we wont be back.

    Took so long for someone to take our food order. We waited around an hour for food. Our starters didn’t even come, and so we had the starters after our meal. I felt Our waitress just forgot about us. Overall the food was amazing, but very poor service unfortunately. It’s wasn’t even that busy to have an excuse.

    Took an hour for the waitress Ellie to ask us what we wanted from the food menu. no one checked on us during our meal. The two young girls serving food both with long fake nails and hair wasn’t tied back! also both with very short skirts on which wasn’t appropriate. once we asked for the bill no one came over with a card machine so we made our way to the bar to pay. service during this visit was really poor, which is a real shame as it wasn’t that busy either. i have eaten here 6/7 times and never had a problem. no issues with the food or drinks.

    Atmosphere was brilliant service was poor waited half hour for 2 drinks, 1 waiter was extremely miserable & unhelpful. The only good thing was the atmosphere in the restaurant. Put on £30 service charge which we asked to be removed, only to be told by a waitress I can’t believe you’ve removed the service charge which is very rude. Which then made us not want to l ave any tip. Only thing to go there for is atmosphere really.

    Very nice food but the service was poor. Waited ages for the waitress to ask for our drinks, it took 15 minutes for 3 of the 4 drinks to arrive and I had to ask for the 4th again. The waitress did not return for a further 15 minutes to take our food order. The wait time for the food was reasonable but when we had finished the meal it took nearly half an hour for them to remove our plates. I can understand if it was busy but there were only around 5 or 6 tables occupied.

    Overall....very poor service....after being asked to pre-order our choice of meals. They served five of us and sixth person was told they didn't have there choice and could they choose something else. So was eating on there own, while all of us had finished our's . Had to constantly ask for our glasses to be exchanged for clean ones. Not one of our dishes was nice....Will never go there again..
