Need staff that know what there doing and more staff! Was left waiting 45 mins for table as staff were scared to tell people on our table that time was up!! Heating was not working as advised it had all blown so was very cold! Not great service but nice to be out

Considering our bill came to over £75, we were told after an hour and half of being there that we should of only had the table for an hour? No mention of this upon booking or arrival?

We have been twice now and neither experience was as good as they could/should have been. The tipi is lovely, we went at halloween and last week when it was christmassy. Decorations were fab and they do their best to make it warm with heaters/fire etc. It's a lovely set up. They need more staff training in there, one man was great but everyone else seems like they don't want to be there or serve you, and they also don't seem to know anything about the food options/special offers.
The ribs the first time were the size of a gerbil. The pizzas are the nicest thing we tried but they are nothing special. All the food is very overpriced for what it is.
Also £6 for a very small mulled wine which was not as nice as the mulled wine I had earlier that day for free at a garden center!

It's crazy because this place has so, so much potential but it is just not fulfilling.

It could be so good! It just needs a bit of umph. We went for Oktoberfest and had to ask for the big German glasses. There were lots missing from the food menu. 2 beers we asked for weren’t available. The music would run out and there would be nothing on until someone turned it on again. You need to think about pictures on social media and theme it a bit more. You’ve got all the tools there it just needs someone with a bit of imagination running it

It was ok, maybe they could of offered a dessert of Apple streusel or Black Forest gateau and the bratwurst could have come with chips and curry sauce. Wasn’t that warm really out there which wasn’t in their control. Good offer on beer and food package but wine overpriced, more Eurovision music than octoberfest. Would I go again no.

No table when we arrived after we had been told to book online in order to get a table. Was told to wait on a bean bag. I was wearing a very nice dress this wasn’t appropriate

The venue is lovely - love the tent set up with fires and heaters.
Had a 7:30 booking and had no table when I arrived. Waited about 45 minutes before I was seated, but able to stand at a pub table while I waited. There were NO German beers and only 2 German pretzels left when I finally got to order (no one took my food or drink order until I was seated at a table). The pizza was really good but the pretzel had no salt and came with no mustard to dip.
Disappointed overall, but at least it was a last night out with friends before lockdown. I think, with a few tweaks, this could be a successful event.

Very poorly organized and run. Not sure why they took bookings on Open Table? When we arrived on time for our booking at 7:30 PM on Friday night, we were told we would have to wait as they had no tables. They wanted to take us inside the hotel to the bar t wait for when our table would be ready. We had 2 bookings for 6 tables each and we both had to wait. Seems they were not limiting times for each table booked. There was no German beer to be had at Octoberfest. Slow service. Would not attend this again.

It’s advertised as a German beer festival, but no German beer on offer, it also said cocktails are available, but no cocktails available they said they don’t offer them. The only fire pit was roped off and was of sole use for the staff. I booked a table for 7.45 on arrival I was informed they were closing in 45 mins. Don’t bother going.

Had a fantastic couple of hours in the tipi, enjoyed by all the family. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, my granddaughter loved the Halloween cake and goody bag she was given. Lovely fire pit and decor! What a great idea was just so nice to go somewhere different for a change ...

We visited the Tipi for oktoberfest, unfortunately it had no bearing on the German ockoberfest. I wasn't aware of any german beer being available, there was a nod to german food with a pretzel and bratwurst. The music was general background pop music when I had expected the odd ompah ompah.
Our table was not available when we arrived but there were lovely cushioned seats around open fires which we decided to use whilst we waited. Unfortunately they must have been left out all night as they were soaked. The man in charge was was helpful and took us through to the main bar to wait which was only about 10mins.
Overall I liked the idea and with some additions it could have been a much better experience. The halloween bags for the children were a nice extra.

whilst i appreciate the current covid situation makes things challenging i would have expected an Oktoberfest to include at least one German beer on the menu, and certainly a stout should not be chilled ! , open fires were nice and sausages were tasty but the drink choice let down the whole experience,

We were really looking forward to the Oktoberfest tipi but from the moment we arrived it was a disaster
We were not greeted on arrival just asked what we wanted to drink and not even shown to a table so we’re left outside
We were not told anything about the food etc and When I asked what the afternoon was going to be like waiter said he didn’t know !
No ambiance - we expected German oompa music and jugs of beer being served by people in costumes as per the theme
It was freezing cold the fire was where the staff were and we could not go near it
Overall extremely disappointing and I have cancelled all other current bookings
We left after an hour

We visited the Oktoberfest
The beers we tried were fabulous. Our favourite was 1269 which was absolutely brilliant. We want to visit again just for this beer.
We didn’t have any food so couldn’t rate that.

Tables weren't sanitised between sittings. We witnessed the same table sitting three separate parties without being cleaned. A couple got up to have a cigarette and came back to find another party seated on their table (again without being sanitised). Flat beer (had to send it back). No authentic German beer on offer

Lovely atmosphere and decor, but need more indoor heaters as very cold and not many people came outside.
