I feel quite bad about writing something negative as the food was lovely, it all started off quite brilliantly with freebies in the bar, amazing bread from the fancy bread trolley. We were on the 8 course tasting menu and we were there for 3 hours!! it was far too long, the gap between each course got to nearly 40 minutes at one stage. Then when the course came we were so hungry that we just wolfed it down and didn't appreciate the taste of it as food like that deserves. The waiting staff did apologise for the delay and they were really good at accommodating me being pregnant. But it just didn't feel special enough - somewhere like this is a once a year treat for me - this year it was on my 30th birthday.My mum had surprise booked the restaurant for me - but they didnt do anything for it - last year at another restaurant they wrote 'happy birthday' in chocolate on the plate which seems to be standard practice, my 2 year old daughter got better treated for her birthday at bloomin TGI's with a free cake!! Just something would have been nice. My husband was also upset after being told that the 2nd beer he ordered was the same as the first although it quite clearly wasnt. They bought a bottle to the table to open in front of us (we never saw the label) and advised that different batches were different with this beer. We make our own beer and we know the difference,one was a lager, the other was an ale. He wasn't too bothered as they both tasted nice, so just an explanation would have been fine - but to have one glass taken away and a brand new one bought in to 'show' us just made a fuss out of it - it wasn't handled very well.
