    I was a little upset with the response on how my booking was not complete! As staff told me on the phone they had no internet and the online booking service was not available! I understand hiccups like this happen when first opening an establishment! But a better response from the staff would of been appreciated, not the response of “well sorry can’t do anything” And maybe update ur website or social media pages explaining your online portal does not work etc

    The food took nearly 2 hours to arrive and 3 people in our group of 11 waited a further 30 mins for it to arrive. Two people tasted their individual meal and found it unacceptable and returned it to chef. We were told that it had recently change ownership they need to get organised and before I return I will need to see many good reports that they have turned their venue arround.

    The whole experience was distressing. On arrival we noted there were two security guards positioned at the door entrance. We had a wheelchair user and another person who has difficulty with entrance steps but were not shown a disabled access. We had a booking for 11 people made a week in advance booked through "open table" to which White Lion belongs but they said on arrival that they were not expecting us even though I showed them the proof. To their credit, they quickly pulled two tables and 11 chairs together and the waitress made us feel welcome. She took our drinks order within 15 mins and was calm and pleasant throughout our visit, calling the manager whenever there was concern voiced by us. We did not order starters but waited 90 mins for our meal to arrive, during which time we had thrice asked the waitress for an update on timing and she had tactfully said that there was a delay. One of our number spoke with the manageress and let her know that we were not happy with the long wait, especially as we had two children under age 11 with us, and wheelchair user too. The manageress stated this was their first night open under new management and that 4 staff had not come on duty. Our member stated that she thought that we would probably not come again. The first 8 meals arrived at 90 mins but the final three were another 30 mins, two of which were an 8 yr old child and the disabled man. The 8 who had received their meals felt uncomfortable eating whilst three were waiting. 9 meals were enjoyed but 2 thought to be inedible and staff were informed. Our table had a good view of the kitchen entrance and during our visit there appeared to be problems in the kitchen. The manageress was called urgently to the kitchen more than once. We were offered a free desert as compensation but we declined because no-one had planned to have a pudding and also there might be another long wait. Not best experience but wonder whether this was simply unfortunate due to staff problems
