Really really disappointing. Total shambles of a restaurant, which is unforgiveable from an experienced restauranteur like Oliver Peyton. The complete lack of professionalism was staggering – from the clueless waiters, to the poor quality food and the serving of our dishes in a completely uncoordinated manner. The order was messed up, the starters did not all come together – in fact we had to wait 20 minutes between the first and last one! It was a full 1hr and 30 mins we got our main courses and the restaurant was less than half full. The langoustine starter was dreadful – tasteless and paltry. The maitre d' capped it all by trying to fob me off with some unconvincing excuse about a power cut in the kitchen – I thought it was a blatant lie from a man who clearly was out of his depth in running a restaurant. The whole thing was very amateur which is inexcusable at over £60 per head. On the plus side, the new decor is lovely, but they need to take the running of the restaurant a lot more seriously.
