I booked 2 weeks prior so it would have been nice to have been given a better seating option to keep us all together and in a more open space as that corner booth set up has no air circulation.

We had a booking for 5 which we booked in advanced however when we arrived we were shoved into a table suitable for 2. This didn’t allow us to order the drinks or food we would have liked too. We asked the a staff member if there was a bigger table and she replied ‘ does it look like it’.
