                                                                Lovely restaurant. Great ambience but very over-priced for the experience. Absolutely love the Firmdale group of hotel restaurants and regularly take friends and clients to them. Today's experience was below par. The food was good. No complaints, but for a price of almost £400 for 4 people, the staff really should not be arguing about where the customer wants to sit, which they did initially. We weren't happy with the table originally allocated to us as it was in the thoroughfare. We were moved to another much better located table, but then after settling down, they tried to move us to yet another table, claiming that our new place had been reserved previously. We weren't happy to move. Eventually, we were 'allowed' to stay where we were but that did cast a shadow on what would have been a great experience.

The bar area is close to the restaurant and lots of tables of larger parties having a drink, which meant me and my guest spent the whole evening having to shout when talking!

The price for 2 main courses with side dish and one bottle of wine (one of the less expensive ones) was over £110, largely overpaid for the overall quality.

I get the impression this is very much a first date sort of venue for an older generation in their mid-40s but I was blown away by the high prices and poor quality. This is as someone who wasn't even paying personally, I was on expenses.

For the price of the food and drinks, I would expected a higher level of service - we had to ask to order and ask for the bill even though we were stood near the till where the waitresses were gathering.

But the food was absolutely delicious! Lobster cocktail starter had loads of lobster meat with avocado and a lovely sauce. We had the Friday special of fish n chips which was excellent.

Drinks and bar snacks [calamari, smoked anchovies and spiced nuts] were all excellent - tasty, well prepared and nicely presented. Service was a bit hmmm; while items arrived promptly initially, had to flag them down for another round; it was very quiet [only 6 other patrons in bar, no one in restaurant] and staff seemed to spend more time chatting with one another at the till than attending to patrons. Rating: 4 out of 5 When moving from bar to restaurant - a walk of less than 50 steps - things went south very quickly. First off, we were the ONLY patrons in the restaurant at about 19.30. Ordered starters of parsnip & apple soup, veal sweetbreads, mains of a seafood stew and a vegetable timbale and bottle of lambrusco. Lambrusco off, so glass and also bottle of rose. Starters arrived quickly, and soup was good, warm [note: not hot], flavourful and well presented. Not so the sweetbreads; they were a real shame. Breading / cornmeal coating was grainy and gummy with areas of the coating that were uncooked; sauce was cold. We both tried them, and agreed, so plate returned to kitchen with 1 of the 3 untouched. Mains also arrived promptly. Seafood stew and timbale were well presented, but were COLD! Soup just below blood temp, half a bite into timbale it was stone cold. Precisely as if most of the dishes had been prepared and parcooked earlier in day, then [very]briefly reheated and presented on warm plates, without chef checking to ensure they were properly prepared. We informed server, and were assured that the chef would remake them. No joke, less than 2 min later, dishes arrived back at our table on burning hot plates, supposedly 'freshly made'. Not possible, we said. Server insisted that they had been. How they managed to get my fork mark in precise place fork had been when replating was frankly incredible ;-( We refused to accept. Ended up having to dine across the road... Rating: 0 out of 5 for Dinner
