We were taken here by friends at the weekend. On entering the reception, my nose started to twitch at the lovely aroma of warm meat. Kind of like an old fashioned butchers shop. Alas I digress. Anyway we were shown to our table which had a brilliant view of St Pauls and began to order review the menu - no hassle from the waitress and she was very friendly in finding out about the best wine for our meal or if any additives were added. So we ordered the first course which was delivered minus one serving but plus a portion of chips? We queried this and were told that our order had gone to another table, but the replacement came a few minutes later. The original waitress apologised for the inconvenience. We had calamari and smoked duck, the latter was gorgeous. No problems when the main courses came either they were lovely, I had the pork chop which was the full size of the plate and dripping cooked chips - beautiful. Really enjoyed the meal. However the problem came when we asked for the bill, we had one waiter walk past us saying not now, another came and asked us what the problem was, he went away and never came back. It was only when the original waitress returned to us that the bill was sorted and we got free drinks on the house to compensate for our inconvenience that the situation was resolved. Really Jamie - some of your staff let down the food and restaurant, and at these prices, they should know better! However if you get the young pretty girl with long black hair as your waitress then she will look after you. Just a shame about some of the others. I have base my ratings on the service she provided and the food we ate.
