Was given a Happy Hour drinks menu, asked how long Happy Hour lasted until and was told 6.30 so ordered a small beer at 6.18 and another at 6.28. Bill came - first beer R/s 145, second beer R/s 290?? Queried it and was told their "microsystems" would not allow it to be changed as waiter seemed to have entered it later on the till - on purpose??? Would not give refund - not happy - would have expected more - they could have used a "macrosystem" - a pen - and changed the bill! I would like to know what the Hilton owners think of this practice - does it happen to a lot of people at the WIP?

I would have expected more from the Hilton. Food choice and quality are acceptable but nothing special at all.

Service so-so , no style, again nothing special.

Ambience quite ordinary.

If every other restaurant at Dutch Hospital is full I would eat here, but not otherwise.

How is this even possible? Tasted worse than a two days old sainsburys cake!!
Service is very slow and they add on astronomical amount in taxes for the privalegge. Avoid

The grilled chicken and salad was very good. Cajun spiced. Perfectly done and service was great. I like the atmosphere. I didn't like the wrought iron I sat on though. Very uncomfortable.
