We have eaten at this restaurant on a number of occassions, but today will cast dought over wether I will return. Waiting staff were great. We started with the garlic bread which was nice, my partner had the pasta which he said was tasty. I have had this dish before and it was lovley but decided to try something different. I had the Falafel Burger, the falafel was extremley dry and so crumbly I could hardly keep it on my fork, it was served with aioli, lettuce, tomatoe on a caibbata bun, there was a side salad with no dressing and a pile of seasoned wedges the seasoning looked and tasted like chicken stock. The burger may have been improved with some chutney or relish

We went here as a group. The surroundings are great. It is a nice place to be but the food was extremly poor. Out of a group of 14 2 had meals that they thought were ok. All the meat dishes were well and truly over cooked. If you hade fallen on the chicken brest you would have skinned your knees. A canterbury lamb dish was so tough and stringy that it was inedible. When we complained to the server nothingg was done to put it right or even acknowledge there was a problem. None of us would go back again.
