I can't really say I'm surprised as I was fully aware of the reputation that preceded this longstanding haunt, but alas the poor service and mediocre food featured in our experience just as it has in fellow diners visits.
Flagging down waiters is never fun, neither is waiting ten minutes for a glass of champagne to arrive so you can commence a toast, or being told I couldn't have my much craved fish and chips because the chip fryer was on the blink. What I did get served was a platter of oily fried fish and crab cakes complete with tough and bland prawns, whilst my friend's prawn linguine consisted of a disproportionately large amount of linguine with two prawns (seemed to almost be a garnish).
Being a celebratory lunch, my friend and I made the most of it, focusing instead on the kitsch, medieval and somewhat intriguing interiors that seem to be the result of a seriously cheese-induced dream, but it was a little grating all the same.
Advice; seems to be a local favourite for brunch, for everything else I'd go somewhere else.
