It was my first visit and we had booked at table for 12, we ordered our food soon after but it took over 35 minutes to arrive. To my disappointment I wasn't even able to enjoy it and had to take it away with me.More

They didn't have one last night (03/12/16). However they do have disabled toilets so maybe they have an alternative entrance.
