A group of 8 of us went on a Thursday night for drinks and dinner to celebrate a friend's birthday. The atmosphere was buzzing, just what you expect from the City. We started by ordering cocktails which our waiter tasted before serving, but despite pulling a face which showed that he did not like the coctails he had made, he still served them to us. They tasted vile. Once we were seated the waitressing staff were cold and didn't make us feel in any way welcome. Some of our drinks orders were forgotten. Also some of the food was served cold. It is a shame because the dishes that arrived that were warm tasted and look good. We were also caught out at the end of the evening on our drinks bill. They wine menu showed wine as £10 which we assumed to be a bottle. It turns out in the low lighting we had not seen the much smaller print, which ran vertically up the side of the border, that the price quoted was not the bottle price which was double what we thought! When we raised this issue with the waiter, he went and told his manager, whose reaction showed that he did not care! Had we not been there to celebrate a birthday we would have made more of a fuss and refused to pay but we didnt want to spoil our friends evening. Its a shame as I was looking forward to trying the sister venue, the Folly, but after that night I shant be going there!
