My husband and I had dinner here on Saturday night to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were very much looking forward to it, both having eaten here previously.
We arrived on time, to take a table booked for 8.15pm and were asked if we'd like a drink in the bar first. We said we'd prefer to go through to the dining area, only to be told that we might as well have a drink as suggested, since they would not be able to take our order for some time anyway. No reason was given for this.
Only at 9pm were we finally taken to our table (we had to ask for menus after a 20 minute wait, and ordered in the bar) but our starter did not arrive for a further 15mins. Again no explanation for the delay.
Our starters were adequate but small (particularly as we were by then very hungry - no bread was brought to our table in the interim), and our main course did not arrive until just before 10pm. Once again, no apology was offered.
The restaurant seemed understaffed as, I presume, was the kitchen that night. While we both really enjoyed our main courses they were not, I'm afraid, worth the extensive and unexplained hold up. It was obvious that other diners were as disgruntled as ourselves.
Overall we were very disappointed with our experience, not least considering the price.
