Ate one Saturday lunchtime.
We had been to the KA several times before, although not for over a year.
Indisputably gone downhill.
Bar mostly empty, definitely cold, and no piped music or any other background noise. Ok - subjective, but definitely not relaxing for me.
Ordered food at the bar as is usual in pubs.
Wanted a second round of drinks, and no-one behind bar, so had to go and find someone.
To be fair, food was ok but nothing special.
What really hacked me off is the they added service charge automatically - which vast majority of pubs don't in this area.
I am happy enough to leave a service charge if I have been shown to a table, served by a waiter, and rated the service. Not in a pub where I have to order at the bar.
I asked for the SC to be removed which was done without argument, but to me, adding it on on the first place is at best cheeky and at worst verging on sharp practice.
There are too many good places to eat in this area who don't automatically add charges to bother with here againMore
