We came here last night after wandering around the city a bit. It wasn't too busy, but we had to wait a minute before being seated by Waitress no. 1. Waitress 1 came around fairly quickly to take our order, but it was a little disappointing that we then didn't see her again until she cleared our wine glasses at the end of the night. We also had to wait for about forty minutes for our food, we had only ordered a main course, but the two gentlemen who had walked in literally one minute before us had finished their starters and were halfway through their main course before we received our meals. The food was brought around by Waitress no. 2 who was lovely and friendly, though a bit dotty. The food itself was absolutely delicious and steaming hot when it came out, we went for traditional trencher meals and both of us finished everything on the plate. The plates were cleared away reasonably quickly after we finished, without us feeling rushed, and when we ordered desserts and coffees from Waitress 2, she also asked whether we wanted it all served at the same time or not, and brought it out within 10 minutes of ordering which was far better service. Dessert was also delicious, and the house coffees we had were really rich and tasty. We ended up being the last people to leave, but while they did start clearing tables there was no sense of our being rushed out the door and waitress 2 was attentive and lovely throughout, even changing a £10 note into pound coins for us and having to run all the way upstairs to the manager to do so. We offered to add a tip to the bill for her but we were paying by card and she turned it down as it couldn't be added to the card system, so we left her some cash regardless.
While we did have to wait a while for our first course and we never saw our original waitress again, we had a lovely experience in a charming little restaurant and are planning on going back for lunch today!
