Four of us booked for my uncle's birthday in December for a night with Jason Isaacs.
Both the man himself and the food were fine and for the money a nice start to birthday and Christmas celebrations.
What was bad was..... no one on reception when we arrived and when someone did attend a group that came before us were seen to first. On booking we were told to arrive around 7 as canapés and champagne would be served while we chose our food. This did not happen and when were seated out came the starters. We asked why we were not given a choice and was told that everyone had been telephoned and asked what the party wanted - myself being the only person involved with this booking most certainly had not and neither had one of the groups sharing our table but the third had!!
We asked for an explanation and we were shown what we had "ordered". Fortunately we all agreed that it was acceptable to us even though we would have liked to have a choice ourselves but asked to talk to the Manger - he never came.
The food, as I say, was very nice.
We managed to catch a waiter and ask for some drinks and unfortunately this was the trend for the whole evening.....no one came to tables offering to order drinks. The best was to go to the bar yourself, make an order, tell them to add it to the group's bill and for them to bring them to you.
In most cases like this they fall over you trying to get you to buy drinks - quite the opposite here.
After the meal, Jason came on and he was very good- a mix of Swing and party songs got most people dancing and a good night was had.
Having been here for Special Occasion before I felt that what we got was good value for money but the night was let down by the oversight on the food ordering and the table service.
