“Lack of Food choice”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We were given a voucher for our 25th and booked a table in advance. This was the first time we had been to the restaurant so had no prior knowledge of the food or staff. We arrived early and were greeted in a manner in which I would expect. The restaurant was not too busy with lots of empty tables. We were offered two menus, one with a 3 course deal which included 1/2 a carafe of wine. We decided on this choice based on the menu. We ordered and some 5 minutes later were approached by the waitress who informed us that there was NO steak. This was at approx 6:50pm on a Sat. I questioned why at this time why there was no steak and no definitive answer was given. The menus were brought back and a new choice was made. Yet again the waitress returned with the news that the second option was also not available. I asked for the manager to explain to me why the kitchen had no food which was been offered on the menu. The manager who can only be described as weak, proclaimed that the butchers had let them down! I'm sure the butcher who supply's your meats would love to be told they were being blamed for someone else's incompetence. At this point I was informed that there was indeed steak albeit 1 portion. The steak was ordered but it was by no means as it was advertised on he menu. Almost half was fat. The Cajun wedges were out of a bag and no where like what was described.

The meal was paid for by voucher. When presented to the staff they had no idea how to deal with it. The weak manager was called but as expected was no use. This was a experience I will never repeat and would encourage others to be wary.
