Took my friend for her 40th. It was not busy but the service was non existent (despite many staff) and I had to go up to the bar to order. I did eventually get an apology from the water who had forgotten us!
The afternoon tea was disappointing - dirty tea pots and plates. A limited range of cakes. The scones were like rock cakes!
Polite and smiling staff do not make up for slow service surely the waiting staff should notice the dirty crockery before taking it out?
We sat in the garden (well kept) but there was bird poop al over the tables and seat pads. Living by the coast I have the same issues but this poop had clearly been there a while - why are the tables not cleaned at the start of the day?
