“up for a reunion”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

Had the longest wait for my meal ever. Some places deserve a 2nd chance not this one though. We had booked, but there did not appear to be any food in the place, strange for a restaurant. Horrible experience.

“Below Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

Previously reviewed this place after a very enjoyable experience, sadly this was not the case on Friday 10 Jan. The only part of the evening that was acceptable was the beer & wine did not run out and was cold.

Enough said.

“Aweful is understatement”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

12 prebooked for a Friday night. We were the only ones in the restaurant when we arrived ( should have heeded this warning sign), yet it took 30 mins to order, another 45 mins for starters to arrive, and another hour for mains to come out in stages- the first 6 had finished before the final meals arrived. Terrible service, and to have to wait nearly 2 hours for some mains to arrive after being ordered is not acceptable! Sides were forgotten about, most mains were a combination of undercooked and covercooked meat and overcooked Cous Cous. A 10 year old could have got most of this right ( including making sure you have enough staff to fulfill a 12 person booking). Shocking. The waiting staff were contantly running to the Tesco next door for supplies, but they obviiously didnt sell bottled Becks, as they ran out of this also. Main door doesnt shut properly, so you end up sitting in a draught all night. And when you finally finish your 'meal' at 11.15pm from a 8.30 booking, its now freezing. Final straw was having to have an argument with the staff about this experience- they thought it was all acceptable.
Real shame as we visited the same establishment 12 months ago and it was great, hence the return. They do not deserve to be in business now, and I would urge people not to encourage them by booking. Luckily there are plenty of other ( professional) restauants in the area. These people to dot deserve your booking, or time.

“It was like eating with the family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Totally friendly place. We really were treated like we were regulars. Nice menu. Excellent food. Bargain drinks - £5 for a double Macallan's! Just one of those places that you walk by and drop in without knowing how good it's going to be.
