Had a quick bite to eat the other night as couldn't be bothered cooking. Wow - what a difference. Enough staff on duty and piping hot delicious food. Will give a Sunday roast a whirl next. The seabass and scallop risotto is highly recommended.

It was horrible from start to finish. This is one of my locals. Yet tonight-I would not recognise it and was totally embarrassed. The waitress was so into the bartender we sat for 20 minutes without a drink. I had to go to the bar 4 times! The food was less then expected, waited 30 minutes for a dessert menu-ordered... More

The staff organised an alcove where 20 people could be together for a party. We gathered for drinks first, ordered and paid for our meals at the bar, then ate together. The atmosphere everywhere was good, and although a busy night, the staff were amazing - nothing was too much trouble! Everyone enjoyed their meals too! Would certainly recommend.

Used to eat here a lot and really enjoyed it! Recently in the last 6 months it's gone seriously downhill. 5 of us went this weekend and the food itself came out quite quickly, it was just a shame it took the waiter 45 minutes to actually take the order! Drinks took nearly 20 minutes to arrive. After asking for... More

Absolutely everything on this menu comes straight from the freezer and into the microwave. You can taste it too. Would never eat here again. Wouldn't even come for drinks as service is terrible. Plenty of other lovely bars with better atmosphere in gerrards cross, avoid this one.

Disappointing is the best word to describe this place. Very bad service long wait for drinks, long wait for food, long wait for plates to be cleared etc etc. I think they are having a staffing problem as every time I go in it's completely different staff. Unfortunately I've had enough of this once great restaurant and would warn people... More

Not very happy at all, there was not any bottled cokes . No tables available. The salad consisted of a few leaves not sure what it was, a little red onion and a baby tomato cut in half. We had to eat in the bar. All the regular staff seemed to have left. Didn't enjoy our visit at all. Gone... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we arrived at 6:25pm hoping for a quick two course dinner for a party of 5 and left at 9:45. It took forever to get drinks and our orders taken, we had to literally chase staff round to get sauces, cutlery, refills etc, We even had to clear our own table... More
