Check in was swift and easy for all of us. Our room overlooked the car park was spotless with a comfy bed. We looked forward to our stay. Very nice hotel.
We went across the car park to the Brewers Fayre. I was fairly quiet at about 3pm got served with a few drinks almost at once.
We had been advised to book a table for the evening as it can get busy. Noticed there wasn't many staff on in the afternoon but took it as it was just a quiet time. When we came back to fulfil our booking there was no "Greeter" and two long queues virtually out of the door. Looked inside there was only two members of staff serving drinks and taking food orders. Talking to people in front of us they had been in the queue for half an hour. Looking round the room there were lots of empty tables so not overly busy.
The problem was obvious just not enough staff. Seems the policy is that there's more profit keeping customers waiting, than getting more staff.
We gave up and found a nice little Bistro in Sheep St in the town centre. Very nice and free parking for two hours. Probably the same amount of time you would have been hanging round in the Brewers Faryre.
