Visited early evening with family.
Very hot day,and we sat inside as no tables outside.. We nearly melted... there was an air con unit but it was not in use and the front door was wide open but no air.
Inside the Decore was cheap and dirty.
Food was ok but very expensive for what it was.
There are a lot of other foot eateries in hale and the hale kitchen either needs to smarten itself up as a restaurant , or just stick to bring a bar.
Wouldn't return.

Visited early evening when it was quiet, my wife had pan fried Bass ok, but for medical reasons asked to have somethings left left off and replaced with a portion of mash potato ok but the portion of seasonal vegetables was a dish of (we think) was mushy spinach( not top nosh), the Champagne Bellini never even materialised. We had too many staff trying to do the job as they say to many cooks spoil the broth, The parking was very poor plus the toilets were up stairs, as my wife is disabled it did not help the situation. when i rate the individual part i will take into account that we were using a discount voucher

We had a Groupon voucher for Hale Kitchen, it wasn't the first time we had eaten in there so we knew we would be in for a treat and we were not disaapointed, with the food that is. We had a young girl waiting on us and she put a complete dampner on the evening. She clearly didn't want to be there! Very miserable, no smile and poor customer service skills. She actually made us feel bad for being there and taking up her evening!

We would go back though, just hope we're waited on better and by someone who doesn't need a personality transplant.

Had a groupon voucher which made this a great value dinner out. Greeted by a really friendly gent who seated us and took food order, he was attentive and it was a great start to the evening.

The booth where we were sat had ripped seats, which made it look a bit scruffy which is a shame.

The food is presented really well but I feel could be a little better, my son had the kids sausage and mash with gravy which was ok, he obviously ate it (he's 3 and a half) but not great quality sausages and instant gravy. Two others in our party had the fish and chips which looked fab and it was very good apparently. Another had the seafood linguine which got good marks while I had the sea bass which I was a bit disappointed with, slightly overcooked with a tasteless mango salsa.

Would definitely try the place again though as the staff are great, the place is nice and the atmosphere was good too.

First visit here but will not be the last. They fit us in at short notice, and we are so glad they did. Had scallops and black pudding to start, it was lovely, followed by steak, oh it was beautiful and so juicy, cooked to perfection. Can't wait to return.
