On arrival we asked whether there were the past Champagne Happy Hour offers and were told not. We later (too late) discovered from a neighbouring table that all Champagne bottles were half price; a pity for us and for the establishment. I asked for a pint of the only hand pump ale 'available' and was informed that it was unavailable (rather poor stock management and why not keep a barrel in reserve). The glass of Tempranillo that was ordered resulted in a glass of white wine! (irritating for us and wasteful for the restaurant). The de-caf espressos took fifteen minutes to arrive and were effectively small dilute filter coffees (we were informed this to be the norm when ordering such coffees). The glass of Champagne that had been earlier requested was at room temperature due, it transpired, to the cooler having been left without ice for seemingly many hours prior (despite bar staff having time to chat to one another at leisure) the response to which, rather than acquire a cold bottle from the refrigerator, was to offer to transfer the Champagne to alternating glasses with ice; - one way of ensuring an £8 glass of dilute, sparkle free but indeed chilled fluid!! Food was otherwise OK. A pity as it is otherwise a nice place and nice staff.
