Here is a reason not to go to the Lazy Cow for New Year. We dressed up specially for the occasion and spent a lot of money on our outfits, only to find that we were one of two parties that had come dressed for the occasion. None of the staff were dressed in Ball attire and there were ordinary people (some in Jeans and T Shirts) sitting around having a perfectly ordinary meal. We paid £50 a head for a party that wasn't there. Although advertised on their flyer, there was no function room, no VIP booths and certainly no atmosphere. There was an ok band on until around 11pm and after that, we had the pleasure of listening to some background music. Our New Year started with a handful of people standing around watching Gary Barlow on the TV, instead of party revellers dressed to impress. We even had to ask for the background music to be turned up, so we could at least have a little atmosphere. There was no organisation and a lot of the staff were clearly not bothered whether we had a good time or not. Although seemingly helpful, the duty manager was dead set on diffusing the situation by dealing with the whole experience via email. We were offered prosecco as an apology for the abysmal turnout of Ball guests. This was an absolute disaster of an evening and we feel that we have had our New Year Celebration stolen from us. Guess What? Although I emailed them 10 days ago, we still haven't received a phone call, or apology. If you want to have a good time, STAY AWAY!!!
