we booked a table for 6 for Saturday for my dads 60th birthday with the family I booked over the phone to be told table had been reserved & would see us on the day. As we turned up we were rudely told to go back of the drinks que before having to point out we had booked a table! We was left to deal with a man who didn't seem to know what he was doing and terrible hygiene standards! bad breath enough to make anyone run for the door! we was left waiting over 10 minutes to be told there was NO table booked for us no apology for their incapable staff! & was told they could shuv us on a small table that would barely fit 3 people round mind 6! We ended up walking out at this point as the staff were so rude & seemed to be trying to shift the blame onto the customers. would not recommend this to anyone in my eyes gone down hill!

After arriving and approaching the bar as there was no staff to greet at the door we were rudely told to go to the drinks queue until we explained we had prebooked a meal. We were then told by a member of staff with the most offensive breath I've had to displeasure of inhaling that despite calling a day in advance, they were incapable of writing down the reservation and had no tables. There was no apology or concern given. Would not recommend.
