I used to be one of the regulars spoken about in previous reviews, many a Friday evening has been whiled away over the years in the ‘smoking garden’ nibbling on great pate washed down with a good variety of boutique beer. It used to be a really great set up, perfect for a wind down at the end of the working week, especially in summer with the blankets on the lawn and cruisy background music. It was an excellent place to catch up with friends, start a night out, or have a relaxed informal business meeting. However my experiences there of late have left me feeling really disappointed and unwilling to go back. They seem to have recently hired a lot of bored looking girls with bad attitudes, they treat you like a nuisance and are often downright rude, they have zero sense of humour and would clearly rather be somewhere else. It is not unusual to see burnt food on display, the coffee has become decidedly average and the once legendary cheese scones have shrunk dramatically; I haven’t had one in months as I refuse to pay $4 for a scone half the size of a bar of soap. Please guys, think about a return to the good old days before you lose the cash cow you’re so blasé about sitting on.
