rubbish food

Sorry but the food was poor , the dirty dishcloth on the bar put me off instantly. The tables and bar were sticky and some of the bar staff were not as well turned out as they could be.

Rude staff. Standing around for ages before being served. Short changed and made to feel like a criminal when they refused to reimburse me. Never setting foot in the place again
