    Music too loud so hard to hear conversation from other side of the table. Waitress had to shout out pie of the day and soup of the day and I was none the wiser.

    McLarens on the CornerResponded 7 days agoHello Gerber, sorry to read you did not enjoy your visit to McLaren's as the music was too loud! We do have a policy where we turn up the volume later into the evening but this should not be soo loud that you cannot hear the server. Our sincere apologies for this and we will look into what can be done to avoid this happening in the future. All the best. Team m

    Having booked a table, our host showed us to the table, to find a couple had already been seated at the table. We then ended up in a gondola, which was nice. Ordered drinks and food at the same time, drinks arrived reasonably quickly. Food was then circa 1hr after we had ordered. Albeit nice, I could have eaten anything by then given the wait. We then ordered dessert, again, circa 30 min wait and when it arrived, it was lukewarm at best. To top it off, the staff didn’t have the foresight to remove the service charge from the bill. First time I’ve not left a service charge. I can excuse being busy, but only when managed with good communication. That didn’t happen.

    McLarens on the CornerResponded 5 days agoHello Disappointeddiner, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional service, so we are disappointed to hear that your visit with us was anything less than satisfactory. We have taken note of everything mentioned here which is not the norm and absolutely not the service we strive for, we will take action to remedy these items. Team M

    Far too noisy, bass beat of the music reverberates in the back section, ask for a table in the front when you book. The staff on duty did manage to move us to a table round the side but it was a squash for 5.

    McLarens on the CornerResponded on 17 June 2022Hello Joan, sorry to read that the music was too loud for you! We have a policy which allows us to have slightly louder music towards the later part of the evening but this shouldn't be the case until around 9.30/10 and onwards. I am glad you were able to be moved to a more suitable seat. Hope to see you again soon. Team m

    Lovely place in terms of decor and ambience. The food could have been better though unfortunately- the full breakfast was really over cooked and the potato scone in particular was rock solid and inedible. The avocado toast was nice but quite small. The carrot apple and ginger juice had way too much ginger in it. Overall not the best but we may have just been unlucky!

    We went with my daughter for her special birthday and we all enjoyed different choices off the menu. I chose salmon which was excellent and then we all had a desert and sampled various drinks especially the cocktails. Fantastic, thoroughly enjoyed it all and would definitely go again for a special occasion.
