This was our 4th visit to the restaurant. We really enjoyed this visit and as we were there with friends it was important that everything went well. Service was again a bit slow but not as bad as our last visit. We had an excellent waiter who gave lots of advice and suggestions. A great evening.
Great service great food the champagne bar offers something different the wife loves it here as do I massive car park be careful of the speed camera though
As normal staff were polite and friendly and on this particular day were very busy. However, this meant that our wait was unacceptable. Starters arrived on time but we had to wait over 40 minutes for the main. This was a family meal which was ruined slightly.
