It’s a local for me and I think we all have a duty to support our local restaurants. I have been many times, both for eating at the bar as well as formal dining. The staff are utterly useless and often rude – I don’t appreciate being told when I arrive for a 6.30pm booking, with practically no-one in the place, that the restaurant ‘will need the table back at 8.30pm’. I am old fashioned and prefer a ‘Good evening, how nice to see you (again), how are you/was your day’. Apparently that would be asking too much. Staff appear to have been recruited on the basis of how they look, which I’m sure plays well with the young crowd that occupy the bar (drinking a lot and eating very little). The food is very good, if a little flash. The atmosphere and decor divide opinion right down the middle: if you like your restaurants understated then this isn't for you. The size and scale of the place is enormous and commercially I can't see how it all works.
