“very poor”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

I went to The Class Rooms for a family occasion, from start to finish the service was very slow, we were booked @ 8:30, received our drinks at 9ish, got the starter at 10 and the main at 11. It was too late for a desert by the time we had finished so we just ordered a bottle of champagne and a cake to come out......the champagne arrived but the cake didn't. When we went to pay the bill we asked for a discount as the we did not get all 3 courses in the groupon deal we had pre paid for. The service was slow but and food was not up to the quality expected. The bill also had a bottle of wine on it that we had not ordered, after a debate on this it was removed. I spoke to the manager/owner who was unsympathetic and seemed to rate her restaurant so much that she failed to see the problems. While we were voicing our opinions to the manager there was also another complaint. We failed to get an apology but were just informed that if we wanted a reduction on the bill then they would have to fire someone to account for the loss in takings. Overall poor management, average food and slow service.

“Not up to standards”
Reviewed 30 September 2011

I went to the class rooms restaurant with my partner on a Thursday night. It was nearly empty with only three more tables in the restaurant area. It doesn't have any atmosphere...
The food was terrible. I ordered sole and it was overcooked, my partner ordered the salmon and it was overcooked too!!
Even with the grupon offer it is not even worth it visiting this restaurant. What a disappointment!!

“Groupon deal - hmm - otherwise no substance”
Reviewed 26 August 2011

We used a groupon deal but things didnt start of well
we were allowed a free drink with the deal - however in the bar - with only 3 other couples in there it took 20 mins for them to serve us while seated.

And when we noticed that people were ordering quite a few drinks - we asked about a happy hour
ah yes sir - sorry it just finished at 7
it was 7.05

we had been there for 20 mins before

so we thought ok - well just go for the free drink you offer us
they missed out on us wanting to buy more alcohol cause of how it seemed deliberate slowness to serve us to avoid us getting the happy hour..
nice start

dinner was pork belly for partner and salmon grilled on lemon infused vegetables
sounded nice
but salmon was over cooked
partner said the pork belly was pretty nice - and shes an expert!

However the dinning room - looks really good on their website -
i liked the trendy lights but really its just a oblong room with the tables pushed to the sides of the room
no atmosphere at all .
very uninspiring ..

Service was very good though - i hope its the same if they are ever busy.

The bar area is ok - the service wasnt as already mentioned
for a friday evening it was very quiet.
probably busier come the winter months

I would say considering there are so many other restuarants - walk on by
nothing to recommend this over the others ...

and really thats what your reading this review for - to see if its special or not..
