    Food was ok nothing spectacular but presentation of food very good . I personally had an appealing experience from a member of staff from the moment we walked in the door I had requested the robot (as seen on the FB page )when I booked and instead of just saying sorry this is not available any longer I was pretty much given a lecture from one of your staff members about why would I want that anyway there's no robot gonna take her job she kept going and going with people behind us listening I bit my tongue and said ok hoping she would just take us to our table but on she went about how the manager was 'over there ' and she didn't care if he heard her she completely made a show of me for asking a simple request on the booking form . Things didn't get any better when we were trying to enjoy our meal as this lady was at the table next to us mouthing about something else to them . No exaggeration it was as if she was high on something the way she was conducting herself . I think her fear of robot taking her job should not be her primary concern if she treats customers like this , I for one won't be back to be treated in such a manner again

    We were celebrating my Graduation and the waitress very generously gave me a glass of prosecco, nice touch! The staff were excellent, very polite, friendly, and efficient while at the same time not overbearing. The food was delicious with good size portions. We have a very enjoyable night and will definitely be back.

    I went here for breakfast and dessert and the food was beautiful as always. The staff were pleasant, however, even though there is no time limit on tables, after 1 hour, we were told to leave when we were not finished our food and coffee. Even though the food was lovely, I thought this was a very rude.

    Can not say enough good things about The Clink. Food was excellent and loads of it but most of all the staff were brilliant. They were very busy but yet no one was waiting on anything. We were there for a birthday and there was balloons at the table and a Happy Birthday song when bringing desert.

    I went to lunch with my dad on Sunday and the music was too loud to be able to have a comfortable conversation (made worse that we were sitting right beside the speaker) I requested it to be turned down but it wasn't. The music was good by the way and this would normally be the last thing i would complain about. Just keep it to a level where we can have a conversation.

    Excellent food and service. Only downside was we were seated next to a very loud, noisy group of men. We asked to be moved but were told there was no other table available.

    We had a very nice night in The Clink. The food was delicious and the portions were very big. The cocktails were very nice too. And the cocktails menu is slightly different from your normal cocktails. The service was good and all the staff were polite and friendly.

    Had a lovely time overall. The other thing myself and my partner thought was a slight negative was that between courses the service was very quick. We would've liked to have a little bit of time between courses for the food to settle. But other than that it was lovely. Also, our server was so lovely.
