“Underwhelming”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Dined here with a party of 8 - mainly because we were staying in the hotel for the evening. Wish we hadn't bothered. Service was awful; food was terrible - some dishes just lukewarm (microwave problem?) some dishes frazzled and inedible. House wine was dreadful, tasted like economy supermarket brand - but at £15 a caraffe!! Now don't you just love it when staff ask you 'is everything ok?' and when you tell them it clearly isn't, they don't do anything about it.

What puzzles me is this: This restaurant is situated in one of the town's premier hotels, I'm sure that De Vere Management occasionally take a peek at TA's ratings?? Are they happy with what's happening in their restaurant, or do they have sufficient captive audience in their hotel that they don't have to bother trying to improve?

“Poor food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is not a great place to eat. Food appears to be frozen Italian meals save your money and go to farmfoods

“Shocking!! New chef & menu needed!! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Thank God I had a 50% off voucher as if I had to pay full price for that rubbish i'd have jumped off Blackpool Tower!

I read the reviews on here & thought surely it can't be that rubbish but believe me - it was!

Avoid the chicken in breadcrumbs as it was just an oversized Bernard Matthews burger smothered in an overpowered tomato ketchup inspired salsa!!

Nice friendly staff though but it'd probably be another Preston Guild before I eat there again!

“Dreadful customer service on two occasions”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Sadly the customer service here is dreadful... the worst we have ever encountered in a family restaurant. We have been twice and the staff were very poor (apart from a young man on the bar) on our first visit. We had a second discount voucher so we returned (hope over experience!) This time we left before even ordering our main meal - this was solely down to their woefully rude attitude. Don't waste your time or hard earned money - go elsewhere.

“Reminder of Anaheim”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Although not in the same league as the Anaheim Buca which is ginormous this was a lovely evening and nice to see they did not have pseudo Italians working there.
