Menu as expected for a beefeater and service good - can wait in bar area if early and eat there too if you are not fussed about being in the restaurant

I gave 4 stars due to the attentive and considerate waitress Tina, had it not been for Tina I would rate as 3 stars. I dined with my daughter and grandchildren. The high chairs are NOT suitable for 9 month old babies! Once baby had been fed - propped up by placing her jacket behind her as she was slipping... More

Called in on Sunday for meal at 18:30 and was told fully booked, yet I saw several free tables and I know you can eat in the bar. Just 2 of us also. I think they go down to small staffing levels at that "quiet" time of day and only take pre-booked.

My mother, sister and I arrived for lunch, just behind another couple and found the waiter/barman on a phone call. After waiting for some time, and receiving no apology for the wait, we were seated directly behind the reservation desk. I ordered a bottle of wine with him straight away and within 5 minutes another waitress arrived and asked if... More
