    The food was fantastic. Whilst the staff all worked extremely hard they were totally overrun by demand. As this was a match evening the bar area was filled with fans having a drink. Looking after these customers took the attention of staff. It was 30 minutes after being seated before our order was taken. 30 minutes later 4 of the 5 starters arrived. The fifth starter, despite cancelling it with two members of staff arrived with the main courses. Overall the food and the company just about made up for the poor organisation. Is it a pub or a restaurant

    Food was ok. Not as tasty as I expected although starters were good. Waiter looked like he wanted to be anywhere but there. Forgot orders, had to double check orders and didn’t bring drinks. Got there eventually….

    Upstairs was very noisy as football supporters were in and the music was loud. We were sat downstairs which was good, and all the staff were excellent. Friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was great too. Overall a really good experience.

    The service was so poor staff was rude. The food was inedible they forgot half our order didn’t check to see if everything was ok or if it even came… and still shared us for it. The food was so bland not worth the money at all. The music playing was way too loud and when I’m eating my food I don’t expect trap/ drill music to be blaring out. Worst experience of food I’ve had in a long time I definitely will not be going back. Seriously disappointed and I’ll be letting everyone know.

    The food and service were excellent. However, we were sat at a table adjacent to the bar, in my view the worst table in the restaurant. There were a number of customers waiting for a table stood at the bar who were almost on top of us, which certainly made me feel uncomfortable. The food and service were so good that I have already rebooked in the hope that we are allocated a different table and have a more enjoyable experience. Thank you for the great food and service

    Despite booking we were sat downstairs among 4 tables next to the toilets. The service was poor I think the staff forget they have customers sitting downstairs so you are waiting for them to come to take orders. Then they seem to forget what you ask for when they go back upstairs. The food is amazing but the poor seating area and poor service and attention ruins the experience. Will get takeaway next time.

    Food was really lovely. We had a table booked and we were greeted by loads of football supporters and ignored by 3 members of staff until I went and asked again and was told we would get the next available table. I think this could have been resolved by a reserved sign and better communication. The lady who got us the table in the end was lovely but the staffed all seemed really stressed and not able to deal with supporters/reservations at the same time. We thoroughly enjoyed the food/menu was great!!

    Received 3 out of 4 meals. 4th meal was wrong order. We then had to wait 20mins for 4th meal by which time most of the party had finished or food was cold as we waited. Most of the staff seemed very serious, no ambience with customers

    Although we had a table reserved for 8pm, we had to wait for 20 minutes before even being seated and when we were seated we were put downstairs near the toilets. I had booked the place for my mum’s birthday, and it was quite disappointing in general.

    Just had an amazing meal with you, with the best service. However, I came back from the toilet to discover my husband desperate to leave. Seems the ‘lady’ who came with the bill made it clear she wanted us to leave when she put the card machine down, asking how long I’d be at the loo and quite aggressively said she needed the table. We’d been there less than 90 minutes. Many tables around us were there before we arrived and after we left, including the table of 14 downstairs. We were asked if we wanted dessert - was she going to box that up to go? Such a shame that this is what we’ve talked about - not the food or fabulous service. Might want to look at her customer service - everything else was amazing! Will we be back, I hope so, but only if we feel we’re not taking up valuable space.

    Normally first class food and service but it wasn’t as good as it has been before. Ordered Vidal and the sent a very cheap bottle without saying anything, didn’t take wine cap off or even offer to pour. We only noticed after we poured it was not Vidal, asked why and they just said they didn’t have it. Not a good start. Lots of items on the menu not available also which was a let down. Order small plate of chicken Katsu as when it was brought out, it was a breadcrumb chicken breast woth tomato ketchup all over it - awful!! Asked where is the Katsu sauce and told they can redo it with the curry sauce, but why not just do it right in the first place?? Have been here numerous times in the past but this is the first time we’ve ate and left as soon as we could. Won’t rush back. Disappointing.
