Poor service, servers busy chatting and playing their mobile or tablets. No even bother to greeting to customer or said thank you. Zombie restaurant. Awful foods. We won't return to this bad experience.

This place is horrendous, inconsistent service, bring your deserts out while your main plates are still on the table. Saying that, no table around us was ever cleared. Incredibly slow service no training provided to people not knowing what they are doing. PREMIER INN should...More
