Myself and my friends attended the restaurant on 8th January 2022. When we arrived we were seated quickly and then was not seen again for about an hour, not even to take drink orders. The service was very slow. My friend ordered hummus for her starter and when this was brought over it was on a plate with nothing else. My friend looked at the waiter and said what do I have with it and he said he would bring over a spoon. I’m sure that nobody wants to eat hummus from a spoon and we asked the waiter for bread. I had already finished my starter before the bread was brought over. Whilst she was half way through eating this the main course come so she did not get time to finish her starter.
The main meal was ok but the chicken was very watery. Again the service was very slow with ordering more drinks therefore I did not have a drink while eating my meal.
I was told by the waiter after my meal that I could have a drink on the house when I said I wanted a cocktail he agreed and walked off. He returned 10 minutes later saying that I could not have a cocktail and they would only offer me a shot of my choice which I said no.
The restaurant was very noisy and loud and it was difficult to have a conversation.
For my first time attending I was very disappointed

Took a very long time to get a menu to look at, took just as long to receive our first drink. Food came relatively quickly. Ordered a 2nd drink that didn’t arrive so had to place the order again. Ordered the vegetarian kebab, which wasn’t a kebab but a dish of vegetables and 2 slices of halloumi, which priced at £17 was expensive for what it was. Extremely busy which was great to see however not enough staff to be able to provide everyone with a good service.

I love this place! Walked in and was greeted by lovely waiters, sat in a nice comfy chair (I hate hard wooden chairs), nice and warm but not too warm. Service was great. I had the mousakka - absolutely delicious :) my partner had the mixed kebabs and he loved it too. We will definitely be back, one of my favourite places now to eat.

Unfortunately we had booked a table for 8.30 then received a call around 4 to say there had been a mix up and they only had tables at 6 or 6.30. We were able to change our plans and go early but feel many people wouldn’t have. Atmosphere was very quiet as so early and we had planned a buzzy night out which it is later on.

It was our first time at Hazels and unfortunately our table was cancelled due to it being double booked, when I received the voice mail to advise me on this, it was made out that it was my error.
We were offered an earlier table but was advised they needed it back within 2 hours even though that time wasn’t suitable.
I understand it’s December it’s a busy time but the organisation is very poor.
Food was incredible though that’s the only thing that saved our night.

I would recommend Hazels purely on how amazing the food is but they need to sort their customer service out.

Nice clean and tidy restaurant, staff friendly, helpful and polite.
Food came up and there was plenty of it, piping hot and really well displayed.
Over all a really good place to eat and plenty of choice.
Would go back.

Great in the weekday evenings but poor service on weekends. Waited 45 mins on a Saturday night for a drink & still hadn’t had food order taken. Shame as such lovely food so service ruins it.

The place is massive with seats for around 200 people and was packed but there were only 3 serving staff so service was slow. It was about 20 mins before we managed to place a drinks order and even then that was only by waving down a passing waiter. Add to that the ice cold air being belched out by the aircon and we had honestly quite a disappointing night.

I booked a table for 5 people on OpenTable and thought everything was fine. I got a text a few hours later to say that the booking wouldn't be possible as they had no tables. I don't know whose fault this was but there was no apology whatsoever. Many people I have spoken to have had really inconsistent service here. It's a shame because the food is really good. Service? Not so much.

First time going to Hazels, service was poor had to flag down a waiter for drinks, and to order. Starters came out quick after ordering but with a 45 minute wait for a main that was cold. Was disappointing.
Decor was lovely and atmosphere was enjoyable however the service let the evening down.

The food and service were pretty average but the main problem was that it was so cold. Dépite numerous complaints to the staff(who were very pleasant) they were not able to put the heating on permanently. It kept switching itself off so we left without dessert or coffee and won’t be returning.

The Open Table booking didn’t work. The restaurant said if you book late in the afternoon they don’t see it. Anyway they found us a table and all was good. The restaurant is set up for big parties again not a problem for us. Staff and food very good

It was my first visit to Hazel’s and as much as the food was lovely I was left feeling very underwhelmed. It was a Monday evening and not busy at all and the wait time even just to be acknowledged was irritating. The lack of attentiveness really put me off. I almost felt we were an inconvenience especially when the waiter flippantly ‘chucked’ our card receipts at us!!! I don’t think once were we asked was everything ok for you!
It’s a big restaurant and they want bums on seats……..make it an experience! They’ve got all the tools, it’s beautiful the food is beautiful just make it somewhere happy to be and make people feel special!
