Had the misfortune to choose The Square Orange for an evening meal on 09/08/13.
The place looked welcoming and because we used to enjoy going to The Square Orange in Kendal, we thought it would be a good choice, how wrong we were.
There were four of us, we choose our pizzas and went to the bar to order.
The surly waitress told us abruptly she needed the number on the menu for the type of pizzas we wanted. Bear in mind three were the same and one calzone, not exactly rocket science.
Ordered one pint and a bottle of Rose, waitress said they had no wine glasses because they were all in use so all they had were half pint glasses, very classy! Eventually three wine glasses became available so the wine was decanted from the half pints.
The wait for the pizzas was quite a while, (one bottle of wine and two pints) we didn’t mind because it did say there may be a delay the menu, the place was fairly busy but not overly.
Two pizzas arrived, waited a few minutes before realising the others were not going to make an appearance any time soon. I noticed about 5 minutes after the delivery, a calzone being put in one of the two tiny pizza ovens; this was mine, why on earth wasn’t it put in straight after the first pizza came out? The first two pizzas were finished before the second two arrived.
The only plus side of the visit, the pizzas were very nice. Well done chef.
My friend saw posters advertising a bottled beer which is drunk out of a very fancy type of glass. This was the reason he ordered it was for the novelty.
He was told they only had two of these glasses and both were in use. So yet again we had to wait for the glass.
On paying the bill, our moody waitress was messing about with tea lights behind the counter and snapped at my wife who was only attempting to pay the bill so we could leave this Mickey Mouse run establishment.
My tip to management, buy some glasses and employ a more pleasant waitress.
