My husband and i stopped in, knowing there was a bar, to sit and grab some local wine and an appetizer on our way home from sandbanks, saturday, aug 3. A waitress told us the kitchen couldn't handle our order, so we had to leave, despite the empty bar and tables. When explaining we were just coming in for an appetizer and wine, she got approval from the chef and the owner so that we could sit at the bar (strange). Once seated, the bartender started saying rude things about us to other staff right in front of us, complaining that we were taking up space for other patrons with "reservations". In all of my experience dining I have never been treated with such rudeness, to the point where we were so uncomfortable with how she was looking at us, we decided to leave. I would never step foot again in a place with such demeaning staff. Most restaurants nearby are wonderful and friendly- do not waste your time or support a place who treats their patrons like they are doing something wrong by sitting down at an empty bar for a glass of wine.
