Had a great comedy night and a really good quality burger meal, however, staff at the bar, while pleasant, appeared to be poorly trained and not very experienced. Why don't companies train their staff any more? When ordering my first drink, one member of staff said to another member of staff, "Well I don't know (how to operate this till). I don't work upstairs do I?" While ordering my second drinks, orange and lemonade and a pint of lager, they took so long to prepare that I began to evolve into a higher life form. I also ordered a glass of soda water which tasted like the water from a loft tank. The hotel is quaint and atmospheric, but tired; a shadow of its former glory and presumed greatness. The comedy, the burger and the quaintness will get me to return however.
