We booked the table for our anniversary and the team did a lovely job decorating the table and making us feel special. We arrived for our 8.30pm booking and were served a free glass of champagne while waiting at the bar to be served. We waited at the bar until 9pm which seemed a little long given our 8.30 reservation but we had a drink and ordered our food at the bar.
Once seated it took another half hour to get served our starters meaning and then another hour to get mains. This means we didn't get our mains until 10.30pm which is far too long given the restaurant had started to clear out and wasn't really busy. This was not acceptable and we didnt want to eat this late in the evening. We skipped desert and coffee as a result and let around 11pm.
The food was very tasty when it arrived and no doubt worth the AA rosetts, we just felt the experience was let down by the amount of time it took to arrive. The staff were all lovely and this is very close to being a top restaurant experience.
