We went to the Channel Bar about 2 weeks ago, checked out the menu, but just had wedges and nachos, these were a really good size and tasted good. We went back today and the prices had sky rocketed. Although the gourmet chicken burger 2 weeks ago was $10 - today $15, I thought I would try it.... I don't know where the gourmet came into it, just 1/2 deep fried chicken breast on turkish bread with a bit of salad and maybe a dozen or so chips on the side, some were still hard and uncooked. We were the only customers here eating and now I know why. It is a shame because it is in a great location and a nicely set our bar and restaurant - but we won't be back.

I had a voucher that they were unable to honour as I was told everything was electronic and they had not set up the system for that yet, even though the vouchers were being circulated to the public. I had a salad with Salmon (was not told it was extra with the salmon), which was poorly presented on the plate. At no time was i given a bottle of complimentary of cold water. One employee on for the day to do orders, serving and the register. Disappointing !!
