Hi Conor, we are genuinely shocked by your review, to the point where we think you may have the wrong restaurant ! We are obviously not incapable of making mistakes but our team is extremely experienced and such simple errors seem really inconsistent with the high standards we have set ourselves. We would love to speak with you directly regarding this matter either by phone call, email or our Facebook page messaging. Kind Regards Chris.
