Ordered a pint and a half, waiter was snotty because I mis heard him (even though it was Friday night and packed and noisy), and then promptly walked away from the bar and forgot about my round. Was "served" within 1 minute of being at the bar, waited 20 minutes before anything reached my lips. Cold, unfriendly, won't be going... More

Visited with colleagues and customers for impromptu dinner. Service was good and quick with all courses arriving quickly. The standard of the food was very good, fantastic Scallops Thermidor and a true melt in the mouth fillet steak. My team and customers all left very satisfied. Thanks for fitting us in at short notice.

Sadly, our waitress clearly had some kind of issue with us; she came over... More

The Restaurant Bar & Grill was recommended to us by friends, and we first visited for some drinks in the afternoon and really enjoyed it. A nice big warm and friendly place, with good friendly service....so we were very much looking forward to returning in the evening for our meal. The meal was poor. The service was shoddy at best,...
