Great food, we had 3 roast beef dinners which were lovely. Service was poor, offered drinks when we sat down which arrived a few
Minutes later, then waited 55 minutes for our dinner to arrive. At no point did our waitress or waiter offer us more drinks, or an explanation as to why the service was taking so long, I spent 30 mins with an empty beer glass. We had our 5 year old daughter with us who was very hungry , so letting us know when ordering that service would be slow would have helped.

The worst experience I've had as a guest!

We (3 people) were welcomed nicely and seated accordingly, however once we placed the order consisting in 2 mains one starter and 2 sides the thing stared... We have been asked if we would like some wine, cocktails, alcohol but I politely declined... At the same time they have informed us that a large group (approximately 16-18) will arrive in less than an hour and we'll be seated behind us and they apologised for the noise in advance...

We started engaging into conversation and I didn't realise that 15 min have already passed since we place the order, moving on forward I stared to feel hungry and when I looked at the clock 25 min have passed since we asked for the food, later on when it was just under 40 min since we placed the order the food has arrived and I have already drank 2l of water trying to minimise my appetite for food.... I prefferd not to mention the obvious delay as a respect to my fellow companions seating a the table with me (however it was obvious to them as well)...

By accident, one of my friends has spilled the blue cheese sauce and I had to ask for another one, I hoped it wouldn't be added to the bill as I didn't have it, however it was but the worst part was that I had to ask 2 times 2 different persons to bring me one and I had to wait 10 min for it... By the time it had arrived I already finished the side of potatoes I intended to eat it with, potatoes which were hot, nevertheless, dry, lacked rosemary and felt like they weren't made on that day...
Once we asked for the dessert we had to wait another 12min for it, and by that time I just wanted to get out... The last bit was when I had to ask 3 time 3 different persons for the bill, and no wonder they were late with it as well....
As guests we felt unwanted and unimportant...There was nothing hospitable about the service and the food was average ... The irony is that 16-18 people received their food faster than us" and were cared by 3-4 waiters

My partner and i were recommended this restaurant by a friend. However the overall experience was just obscene! Our food took over an hour to come out, when we got the food, the food was stone cold - the mash felt like it just come out of the fridge and the steak was semi warm - i'm pretty sure steak is meant to be hot right?! Anyway, we did the usual complain and the waiter took the food back ''clearly warmed it up'' and gave it back to us. Food turned out to be ok. As our food was cold and we kicked up a stink, he offered us complementary desert - we were thankful for this. We both had the Sticky Toffee pudding, which looked amazing, however my partner spotted a long curly black hair on my one. She pulled the hair out of the pudding and it was that long the waiter spotted her do it and she gasped with shock!! Again - we made another complaint. The manager kindly knocked the bill off for us, however still had to pay for the beer, that's ok though i suppose.
Its a shame about it really, as i have heard some great things about this place - i think its only popular for its name because where it is located.

Thanks

Dear ChelseaP, I would like to extend our apologies for the food received. I would like to explain that when the steaks where sent back to the kitchen it was explained by the manager that we will prepare two new fillet steaks (which was the case), so a starter was offered whilst you waited for the new steaks. This was declined so complimentary desserts were offered. Please contact me via email if you would like to speak about this further. Warm regards, Peter Milne Restaurant & Bar Manager

First impression as you walk in is something a little different than maybe expected. Dress code is intended to be smart casual but this is not enforced ( i.e. shorts, t-shirts, etc.) and most people were casual. So maybe a little too higher expectation is set for most people as it seems the theme is higher end than what is delivered.
So onto the food & service - it’s an upscale pub with table service and one you get it everything falls into balance. Drinks were a little slow, cocktails don’t take 15 minutes to make!
Food was good enough and good value - Yorkie Pudds are a nice touch and the Salmon with Gin & Lime was OK if not a tad salty.
Lamb rack was excellent and a Sirloin Steak which was not the best I’ve had certainly wasn’t the worst and with good flavor.
Wine list I didn’t think too expensive and the Rioja we had had been selected well.
I would go again .

While I almost gave them 4 stars based on their reasonably good food I decided to give the place a 3 star rating. The service was excruciatingly slow. From the time we placed our order it was an hour and a half before our entrees came out. That was unacceptable and I actually had to ask the server why were we waiting for an hour and a half. At that point she told us that things were slow in the kitchen. My feeling is that a floor manager needs to be on top of situations like this and working the room and speaking to the clients. No one had the good sense to say anything to us until I voiced my concern. There are too many other nice places around this area to take the chance that one may run into the same situation we did. I would not recommend this place for that reason. Sorry

The food is fine. Beware, on the opentable special offer it states that the Sunday roast comes with a selection of delicious starters to begin and classic deserts to finish. When you book you are also given the option of the special offer or a la carte. I chose the special offer. The price of the Sunday roast is the same special offer or a la carte. So what is the offer. I questioned this and the waitress went to ask the manager who said the special is Sunday roast - one main course, no starter and/or desert. So there is no offer as the price is the same as the a la carte. There is no opentable menu, I was presented with the a la carte menu. VERY BAD

We visited Scoff & Banter this week following an evening at the Proms. It was disappointing. We had the fish & chips and steak & egg, both pretty standard dishes and both v poor quality. Our food took about 45 minutes to turn up even though there were very few people in the restaurant and when it did it was low quality, soggy (the fish) and tough (the steak). I did read reviews before attending but chose to focus on the good ones, lesson learnt!

OK looking hotel but on a busy main road.
Reception area / bar quite nice but not very cosy - we could have been in any high street pub chain.
Restaurant area busy and again lacking any sophistication.

Staff not especially welcoming at first, but our attendant, when we were eventually seated, David, was friendly and helpful - although we had to explain the package we had (bought for us by some very generous friends) included champagne and not prosecco (it was a gift and we wanted what had been bought for us) - to his credit, David returned with an apology and the right drink.

The food and drink:
- the sandwiches were rather chunky and what was delivered didn't match up with the menu (again we had to ask for what was listed but not brought)
- the scones were very dry and not enjoyable
- the cakes were left - literally we couldn't face them
- the tea selection was great!

We did ask for a second glass of fizz and to our surprise, we were not charged for these - not an oversight, but a nice gesture on behalf of the venue - which suggests they recognised the event hadn't been that special or enjoyable for us.

We will not be going back.

Very tasty food. Slightly limited menu but still a very good choice. The steak was excellent and sides were delicious.

A very nice setting and feels very spacious and a good distance between tables. IT was quiet when we went but seems a big enough room that even if it was full you wouldn't be drowned in everyone else noise.

We enjoyed a very nice meal. The staff were extremely good and accommodated us when we arrived half hour early. The service was excellent. The wine was rather expensive and we were given an incorrect, and even more expensive bottle, but we didn't realise until we had already accepted and consumed it. Most of the food was really good, but the sticky toffee pudding was too heavy and would be quite indigestible without added ice cream. The birthday cake treat was greatly appreciated.

We had a wonderful family meal here Antonio served us and he was patient and we never felt rushed throughout the whole meal. The food was very good.

Our experience was excellent. The food. The service. We were visiting from the US and found this to be one of our best dining experiences. I enjoyed the ginger carrot soup and the light fare chicken. Highly recommended. (Make reservations!)
