Chicken club baguette... More

Unfortunately this was not the experience I was hoping for, we were there as a family group (four adults and a toddler of 2.5) whilst the service at the bar was ok (this was only the second night after opening) it was still a bit slow while the staff tried to find various meals on the till, as for drinks...

Service was terrible- people walking out in disgust- when food finally arrived it was cold. Did not go back there on my recent trip to Livingston & think it will be a while before I return 😕
