Good evening meal

Went last night for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. A few lads were outside having a drink and inside a few tables were full with customers.

Service was good but food not great - the owner sat with a miserable face all the time we ate! Didn't even say goodbye! Will not be going back. Also cannot stand it when a service charge is included on the bill.

We went to the Hale kitchen on a groupon voucher last week for my mums birthday with friends. On first impressions we were pleasantly greeted by a lovely gentleman who I assume was the manager. We were then seated at our table upstairs by a lovely polish lady. Our drinks order was taken & our cocktails arrived a few minutes... More

Felt I had to write a review after seeing some negative ones. OK went on a cheap Groupon 2 course voucher and after reading other review nearly didn't. What we found today was some good food, excellent service from the young waiter(well young to me!) and a pleasant atmosphere. Drink prices were reasonable at just over a tenner for a... More

We went on Saturday 9th as we had been given vouchers as a present. Downstairs looked really nice but we were given a table upstairs. The area was small, cramped and with a TV on the wall looked more of a chavs living room than a fine dining experience. The chandeliers were dusty and dirty and some light bulbs were... More
