“Extremely poor service and food!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

We went here for Sunday brunch. Ordered 4 meals one of which include Venison sausages. What we ended up being served was clearly not a venison sausage. Looking at other orders the sausage looked identical to the normal sausage being served on other meals.

When we asked the waitress to double check if this was a 100% venison sausage - she spoke to the chef for a few seconds and came back to tell us that "the chef said it is a venison sausage". We said that that doesnt sound right she simply said "well that is what the chef said".

Also one of our meals had been sitting at the kitchen counter for 5-10min before being served. It wasn't really warm anymore.

Dont recommend going here at all.
