Service very slow think there was an issue with the tiles that led to this, waitress did not ask for drinks orders etc... had to be prompted to do this, she wasnt very familiar with the menus but she was a nice girl and seemed under pressure so we didnt complain. Food order came out wrong and was rectified and the food was amazing.
One complaint is the messages over the tanoy, while I appreciate it may be a very effecient way of calling people to their table, it feels a bit like a supermarket and takes from the atmosphere, its not at all nice.

Noise level was extremely high due to VERY ANNOYING SCREECHY CHILD.; not JF fault of course but HOLY COW! Ban children!!! Or implement a gagging system!! Guests will think it’s charming, I’m sure!!!

Was quite cold also which was not my previous experience.

Waitress was so lovely and gave a friendly and homely vibe. Staff are great. Also was surprised and impressed with the reasonable prices vs the huge portions. Not bad at all!

All was ok, except for the waiting Time after arrival. The table was booked for 18.30, however the table was not ready for another 10-15 minutes after arrival. Given the fact we were with the little aged kids it was annoying to wait in the middle of the bar.
