Visited restaurant on Wednesday evening. We have been a few times over the years the last time in 2010. The ambiance is good and an improvement from last visit. My steak was slightly over done but not ruined and I enjoyed my meal. My daughter had Tuna to start but was not impressed. My family each had potato to accompany the fish main course and were taken aback by the miniscule size of the potato portion especially as neither of them being big eaters. My chips was a huge portion compared to the alternative style of potato.
The thing that really let the restaurant down was service. This was as bad as 2010. The time delay between 1st and 2nd course is too big. The waitress was apologetic when we inquired about the delay but could not provide a reason considering the restaurant was not overly busy. I think it would be helpful for the waiting staff to be more attentive to clientele. The plate is put on the table but no follow up to see if food OK and if you need anything else until they remove plate. If food is unsatisfactory or you need another drink it is a long time before you get attention. Having said this the serving staff were friendly and polite when they engaged with us. The Hinckley area is poorly served by quality restaurants and its a shame that Barnacles does not quite make the grade
