This has to be one of the worst eating experiences I have EVER had. The calamari starter was dreadful, several pieces were overcooked to burned and the other half bordering raw. It had clearly been cooked in old dirty oil as there were remnants of previous cooking, by this I mean the burnt coatings which must be floating around in it. I called the waiter and asked him to take it away, I was offered another which I refused and wanted it taken off the bill.
The main was chicken and ribs, a total waste of money, ribs were just that RIBS with no meat on and the chicken was no better. My colleague was not impressed with his meal, he had pasta, how the hell can you mess that up but F&B can manage it.
We are here in Banbury for the next 5 months working staying at the Holiday Inn, they have lost me forever, and I will tell everyone to steer clear of this chain of pirates, poor quality food, cooked poorly and sold at London prices.
My advice, find a Harvester, at least it is consistent, fairly decent food cooked properly at a reasonable cost.
To top it off the calamari was on the bill, it was taken off eventually. I did leave a tip however, my tip was to close down and spare the people of Banbury future torture!
