Booked Saturday 21st for table Wednesday 25th. Arrived on time for the Rod Stewart tribute who was a good lookalike but not much of a soundalike! First problem we encountered was name incorrect on table booking although I spelt the name out on the phone for the original booking. The arrangements were a bit of a cattle market with no sense of cohesion everyone milling around and a girl with a clipboard trying to find out who everyone was( not easy when they get your name totally wrong! We sat in bar area four adults with a bottle of wine glasses a jug of juice bottles and glasses of beer etc we were then shown to our seats. Yes all fine but where was the "let me carry those drinks to your table sir/madam? Surely that's a given in any half decent eatery? This was a set menu for £24.95 a head which represented good value as the portions were generous. The food was overall very good apart from the cheesy potatoe thing which looked awesome but tasted a bit plastic . Our table very quickly became cluttered however and as four diners I would suggest that the table would only have been suitable for 2. The staff always seemed busy but in a busy doing not much sort of a way, one particular waitress kept standing I front of us when the tribute act was on which became pretty darn annoying after a while but as our table hadn't seen each other in a while we had plenty of catching up to do so it can be excused. Overall the night was good the food more than acceptable. In my opinion there are a few of the fundamentals missing, those finishing touches, those small things which improve ones dining experience. I'm no food critic or mystery shopper but I know what is important to me.
