Our meal on New Year’s Eve 2015 was ruined in part by a table of youngsters in their early 20's, loud, obnoxious idiots who delighted in shouting over nearby tables and openly discussed topics not suitable for a family oriented establishment. Being New Year’s Eve you can forgive the high spirits, however the poor customer service I received when I... More

The food was as pretty much expected for a Beefeater but the service was painfully slow. Agreed it was lunchtime on the last Sunday before Christmas but it was well over 1 hr before the main course arrived. If you are going to allow that many people into the restaurant then at least have the staff on duty to cope.

Went to this venue today and will most certainly not be returning. Having done several reviews for TripAdvisor, this has been the worst venue have visited. Firstly, the restaurant is very tired and requires a revamp. Where we were seated, smelt strongly of over-flowing toilets and was off-putting during the meal. The gents downstairs was broken and the upstairs has... More
