This is a truly awful place. It's become self service, but they still charge the prices of a table service restaurant. We were totally ignored for five minutes as we stood patiently at the bar. Once we asked, grumpy staff showed us to a table. When food arrived, one was minus peas so the waitress took it back only to... More

I came into the green room before a show at the hippodrome and i found that everyone was well mannered and had quick service for the customers. The food was well made and tasted good and i would say the atmosphere was warm and welcoming.

Booked a table to turn up and it to be given away. No attempt in finding a replacement or any help. The staff were clueless and rude. The customer service was none existing and rude. Unable to organise anything. Waited 20 minutes for a round of drinks to have half of them to be wrong. And waited over 50 minutes... More

Pre theatre dinner. Good job we arrived early. A friend had started a tab, and they lost her card. Took a very anxious 5 minutes to find it. Food was good, very large portions, (could do with some portion control) but the place was chaotic by the time our dinner was served and the staff seemed overwhelmed. The cubicles in... More
