    The food was really good and upto the standard of reviews I had heard! The gravy was slightly watery though but that is preference to myself! The chicken was moist and well seasoned and the veg was well cooked and flavoursome Now the only let down to this was the service, firstly we hadn’t even sat down and we were asked what we wanted to drink! I like to sit get comfy and look at the menu firstly so I was a bit took back by this! Then as the drink orders were taken the server was really helpful finding out the ingredients of the cocktails! Maybe have them on the menu as it can help! The main issue was the wait we waited around 50 minutes for our meal and the excuse was it’s busy. No apology given and the waiter seemed a bit abrupt when we asked about the wait! We were going to stay and have desserts and a drink but this soured the experience for us! I understand at busy times there can be wait but checking on tables and advising them helps! Apart from the wait I would return :)

    Choose the 3 course offer they currently have on. I was massively disappointed with the food and the ridiculous waiting times. I have previous eaten in this restaurant and had a chicken parmo, the one I had before was huge. The one I was given yea was absolutely tiny and had zero Bech sauce underneath the cheese. Considering there was only 3 tables in, we had to wait 40 minutes between each course. Incredibly slow. So disappointing

    Service was slow (45 minutes from ordering meal to receiving meal) Waited 15 minutes to place order and order a drink Food was lovely apart from the beef on the menu states served med/rare but was over cooked and very tough. (Couldn't eat it) Ashame really because we love the chairman and have visited for food many times and alway had a lovely meal. Must have been an off day
