We arrived on a busy Saturday night and were seated next to 3 large and very noisy groups. Wait staff were attentive.
Our food was average at best and for the first time in my life, I sent the main course back to the kitchen. The Angus beef hot pot was served luke-warm and looked suspiciously like left over roast in gravy. The meat was tough and bits were grisly. I was offered a replacement meal but by then it was too late.
The set menu was unimaginative with some dishes unavailable/changed. We felt the large groups stretched the kitchen's ability to cope.
The front of house staff did their best in trying circumstances.
