    I’ve dined here a few times mainly lunches. This time I was meeting friends I hadn’t seen for a while and pre booked an outside table. I asked for this specifically as I know how noisy it is inside. On arrival I was told they didn’t have an outside table. Surely I should have been told this at the booking stage.

    Food was great and service friendly although a little rushed - some waitresses seem happier in their work than others ! It’s very noisy in there ( second visit I’ve noticed this ) and then a couple of people remarked that we were a noisy table because we laughed a bit too much !

    Food Great Waitress Great Front of house/ manger not good, I didn’t book for outside only requested on open table so when arrived he said can’t set you outside but take a table inside and il see what I can do, he never come over once I had to ask 3 times and every time he said let me see what I can do, It’s not that there was no table it was that he never seamed bothered or once come over. Poor show from Lot because every time Iv ever been there everything has been great. May be he was having a bad day which we all have at times but if that was my first visit I would be going back.

    It was a lovely evening and seemed rather busy at the bar we were a table of 3 the service was slow (new staff) and the manager helped where necessary. The food took a lot longer than ever before and we chased it up (never done that) it arrived the burger had clearly been sitting Uber the heat lamp the bun was inedible and disappointing the pasta dishes were not hot as usual In Fact more warm. The staff were very busy but they should have asked why they were expected to serve a burger like that! We were not prepared to wait another 40 mins. We will be back hope this was a one off evening my husband hates to complain but wishes he had.
