Arrived for lunch and things did not get off to a great start. Firstly a couple who arrived after us got served and seated first. When we were greeted (by two different members if staff) we were given a table fir 2 although there were 2 adults and a toddler. We asked for a bigger table and the member of staff said she would need to check. In the meantime we were left standing in the middle of the restaurant with a pushchair and toddler which wasn't much fun. After about 10 minutes and watching the member of staff sit at least two other parties we just sat down anyway. We were then approached by our waitress asking if we were ready to order! We explained the situation and she went to speak to the girl who was supposedly sorting our table who finally returned to tell us that we could get a bigger table.
We then had at least another 30 minutes wait on our food arriving. When it did arrive, it was lovely however having to wait 40ish minutes in total for it meant trying to eat and pacify a bored and hungry toddler.
It's a shame really as the food here is good but having spoken to friends who have dined here and having read some if the reviews my experience doesn't appear to be a one off.
Our waitress however, was great. She was warm and friendly and so helpful. I would return to the restaurant but would book a table and make sure I wasn't in a hurry.
