I went to the restaurant with a friend for a catch-up on a Tuesday night in May 2011. When we arrived at the restaurant at 6:15pm, we were initially ignored whilst we were waiting at the bar to ask about seating. Needless to say, there was no-one else at the bar, the manager just decided he was going to finish the task he was doing before speaking to us. When we asked about dining in & that we had a voucher to use, we were told that they would not accept the voucher which was 241 on all courses, they would only accept it on main courses. After further discussion they still refused to take the voucher, saying that they had retracted the offer & we should not have been able to get it.
We decided to stay anyway & ordered our mains which took a long time to arrive, but because the surroundings were pleasant & we were talking we were not that concerned. The food was nice when it came, but unfortunately one of the orders came with goats cheese in the salad which was not mentioned on the menu, and as a result the salad was not eaten as neither of us liked goats cheese. Our plates were cleared away when we had finished and we then sat waiting for the desert menus. The manager was around (he was the only person working at this time) but was making no effort to come over to see if we wanted anything else to eat. We took the menus from the next table & decided on our order. When the manager eventally came over we were told that there was not many deserts as the kitchen closed at 6pm and the staff were not happy that they were still open. When we asked what there was still available, the manager said he would go & find out - this took him 10 minutes, When he came back, we were told that we could not have a desert at all.
I know it was a Tuesday night, so not their busiest night of the week, but what restaurant has the kitchen close at 6pm and remain open to customers after this time?
