After reading the countless 5 star reviews, I was really excited about coming here, unfortunately the excitement was short lived.
Firstly the food is nothing to shout home about and correct me if I'm wrong but the term "ping & ding" comes to mind (I do apologise if I'm wrong but I find it really difficult to believe a chef can get a steak cooked incorrectly three times, it's absurd, at least if they are qualified...)
Secondly the staff there were awful, very little training obviously and many of the young ones didn't seem to know what they were doing I had to ask three different members of staff for my drink and when I finally received it the waitress didn't apologise but told me they were busy I was so shocked that I needed to get my frustration out.
Thirdly I do believe that there is some foul play here in order to bump this places sales or something, to have 15 excellent reviews in the space of a few moths to get to number 2 in Coventry is just not fair to the other places around and definitely not good for customers as myself and family will not be returning here again! Definitely try somewhere else!
I ask people to review this place if they feel different to me as its a fair system. I just think it should be representable to the place.
