We arrived at the restaurant when it was fairly quiet. We didn’t queue for very long. We ordered some drinks and ONE pizza to share. Drinks took some time to come down but did nonetheless. After 40mins waiting for food we asked a waitress where...our food was and she went to find out and said it would be a few minutes. We waited another 15 and still no pizza. In the end we asked for a refund and another waitress came down, no apology or explanation what happened to the order and quite rudely said thanks once the refund was made. Before this we seen that waitress go to the kitchen and we heard the chef quite loudly shout fu*k sake. which either indicted it was forgotten about or missed in the kitchen, or the order didn’t go through. Not sure why as it wasnt explained why we didn’t receive our ONE pizza. As we where leaving, we could see two waitresses in all black whispering to each other and looking over towards us quite obviously giving off , so I stopped to ask what the hold up was with the pizza and we were told it was literally just coming out if we had waited, to which I replied - we waited an hour for it- and then we where told that a lot of pizzas had been ordered - despite the fact we had been in at a quiet time and ordered before tables started to fill, all of which had food before us. I am a waitress and understand the stress of working at busy periods of the year and it seemed the restaurant had just finished a busy service when we arrived as no tables where cleared or cleaned down. But the service was absolutely appalling, nobody came down or noticed that we were still waiting for food and we didn’t even receive an apology or explanation until we asked for one.More

We were seated outside and no table service for 10 minutes. Had the option to use the app which was only working on 1 out of 5 phones . One perosn ordered 3 drinks, when we finally got table service and started to order they...claimed we could not sit if we were not ordering any main meals... Unless its seems you could order on the app as our friend had no issues. Waitress claimed ' well I didnt take their order...' that was the best and only excuse we got.More

Ordered out of here from deliveroo. Id ordered before and it was mediocre but it's what the child wanted. I noted it had quite a long delivery time but it didnt expect it to take 3 hours!!! Ordered at 8 and it arrived at 11!...I could have forgiven it if the food was okay but it was absolutely vile!!!! Uncooked burger that I had to tell the child to stop eating. Chicken salad was the most pathetic amount of salad leaves known to man! Soggy and wilted beyond a joke. Chicken was so tough I wouldn't even give it to my cat! Chips received instead of onion rings! I ate a few bites of chicken because I was so hungry but instantly started to feel sick and put it straight in the bin!!! Cold and inedible food, maybe don't accept orders you can't actually fulfill. Do not order out of here!!!! You will be sorely disappointed! Thankfully got a refund from deliveroo. Id give it zero stars if I could.More

super fast and friendly service only complaint was no option that i could see to choose to have no dressing on my burger also the smallest burger i ever saw as was the burger bun food overall was very good but the beef burger and...the chicken burger were like kids meals plenty of chips and very tasty too couldnt order a pint via app was another problem so i settled for an overpriced coors bottle but apart from that staff were grand and very friendlyMore
