Went in a group of 11. Place was heaving. Was a little apprehensive as some reviews were poor especially regarding the attitude of staff.
Found the staff to be fast, efficient and businesslike. All food brought to table on time , hot and together for the whole group. Staff were busy but made time to chat when service had finished.
Food was pretty good overall. All the group enjoyed their meals. Comments included "duck starter was outstanding, pigeon breast really good". I had butterflied prawns which were very good. Main courses also good. The turkey looked really nice and all the veg looked and tasted excellent, with the exception of the parsnips which for some reason weren't fully cooked. However, the rest of the veg was spot on. Only complaint from group was that the rolled sirloin was chewy. Everything else was good though and all the sweets went down a treat. The creme brulee got rave reviews! I had the cheesboard ... again, a nice selection.
The best Xmas dinner I've had in a long time and not a bad price at all (£20). I am likely to return to see how they fare after Xmas.
The only other issue was that servie at 10% was added to the bill (not mentioned on the menu). I personally don't like this practice, but understand it is quite common, especially in the upmarket establishments. remember, you have the right to have it removed from the bill. We were very happy with the service and didn't quibble however.
Last note: beware the blond Lithuanian ... she packs a mean punch ;) !!!
