Took two friends on Saturday night for a meal in the main restaurant.
Don't you just hate it when you have just poured the wine yourselves, and the waiter comes straight over and tops up the glasses and empties the bottle and says shall I get you another one - all within a few minutes of sitting down! As we had looked after ourselves, and he watched us do it; I see this as pushy and cynical up selling.
If the staff were to smile more, and actually looked like they wanted you to have a good time it would help. Probably OK for afternoon tea or lunch, but won't bother with dinner again. The bill was £170 - which is a lot for an average night out.
