    Excellent food as always but service was exceptionally poor. Waited a full hour for our food to arrive. Drinks we ordered whilst waiting never arrived. Had planned on having dessert but didn't bother due to the time. Waiters seemed disorganised & harassed. It was all very chaotic. Shame as this is one if our favourite restaurants.

    Exciting and great selection of foods, great presentation, very tasty, we tried a few seafood starters and they were all amazing. The langostine with pork was wonderful. Will definitly go back for the steaks. I also tried the haddock and the batter was fully and light. The meat inside was cooked perfectly too. Juicy. Restaruant filled up at 6pm, booking definitely needed. Separate bar area is nice for a quiet drink.

    We introduced friends to The Stack for the first time. We received a warm friendly welcome and swiftly served with our drinks before our food order was taken. Everyone in the company had Sunday Roast and were not disappointed. The Stack now has another couple of supporters.

    We went to celebrate the birthday of my son who is a chef. He found the menu very tempting and was spoiled for choice. The Stack's chef uses interesting flavour combinations and provides attractive presentation. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Sadly that day there were very few diners but that did not affect the service nor the quality of cooking. My second visit and I will be back.
