Disappointed with service, menu choices and value for money. We hadn't been in a while and were looking forward, but wouldn't go back. Main courses were the only enjoyable element. Staff more interested in talking to people they knew rather than being attentive. The old restaurant always had a buzz, but there was no ambience at all. Admittedly on arrival we were told there was a problem with the lighting in that they were too bright! Staff shirts/blouses were stained, didn't look professional. Very disappointed with the experience.

Good service and it looks like it’s a good place for business dinner as all the surrounding people were on their business dinner except myself and boyfriend.
The winter menu was nice and affordable!

Arrived to a virtually empty restaurant. That in itself was not a problem, but our party of 4 were seated quite close to a rear door. The cold was blowing round our ankles and by the time the meal was over, our feet were freezing! Food was lovely. Great menu. Great service. But lads turn the heating up!

Really poor customer service. Booking was at 20:00 seated at 20:20. Not given a drinks menu, coats not taken, long wait times between courses. Food was as always very good and to be fair we were given free desserts as a token of goodwill. However it was probably the worst customer service I have experienced.

Excellent food. I ate early evening in January: very few people in the restaurant (perhaps not surprisingly). I was allocated a table in the basement and was completely alone - weird. The staff also thought that was odd but the computer had put me downstairs so that was that ... Food was excellent though the choices were very limited on the pre-theatre (before 6:30) menu

Booked a table for 2 for 9pm New Year’s Eve and secured my booking with a deposit over the phone. Then 2 days before the reservation I spotted another confirmation email for 7.45pm, they did however manage to move us back to our original time, luckily I had checked my email!

Food was good, although we had been given a course from another table early on in the evening.

Probably best visiting on a quieter night.

Staff were very friendly.

On Christmas Eve it was a very busy place but the staff were attentive and efficient and our order arrived quickly. Food was delicious and there were no difficulties with some minor modifications to suit our dietary requirements. Definitely recommend it to my friends.

I was a bit disappointed at the value. We went for a special birthday meal and compared to other restaurants in the area we can't see how the price could be justified for the quality of food we were served. We were there during the summer and enjoyed it much more then, but this time the food was only average, and I regret to say we won't be going back.

Food was amazing, as it was Christmas time alot of drunk loud female Christmas parties. So loud I had to complain, manager came over and was very nice. He tried his best to get the girls to lower their voices. Which worked until he walked away. Its a classy five star place to dine unfortunately drunken people taught they where in McDonald's. Will definitely keep coming back as its one of my favourite restaurants

We were a group of 6 women, all 40, meeting for our Christmas get together on Sat 15 Dec.

The restaurant asked us to keep the noise level down after we finished our dinner. We were a group of mature women, catching up, having a few glasses of wine and having some fun. Nothing more than any other group of women in the restaurant.

This comment was totally uncalled for. I’d like to give you some feedback on my overall experience.

1. Received call from staff member on Mon 10 Dec to confirm our booking on Sat 15 Dec. The lady was speaking with her mouth full. She did apologise as she was eating chocolate. Not very professional for a restaurant that sets its standards so high.

2. Arrived at restaurant early. Before we sat down, we were told by the waiter that he’d be ‘kicking us out by 7.30’. We appreciate that a table has to be free for the next sitting, but again the way it was said was unwelcoming.

Overall, the food was nice, the experience as a whole was very disappointing and it’s a real shame because that’s what you remember. We attended your restaurant on a recommendation, we won’t be paying that forward.

Although surrounded by Christmas parties, the service was excellent.
The gluten free black pudding with a 63 minute cooked chicken (as I was told) was a bonus for a coeliac.
