From entering the take away section to actually getting served took almost 40 minutes, not even busy. The young staff serving were next to useless and moved round at a snail's pace. God knows how they cope in the busy season. Experience made worse by the fact that the food was below average.

We visited for my Nans 80th birthday. The service from our waitress Lynne was professional and she made us feel very welcome. The food as always was exceptional, certainly worthy of the BBC awards. We were provided with a private table with chandelier which made the event extra special. My Nan was also surprised with a small birthday cake courtesy of the staff. An excellent visit and memorable occasion!
