So it was our first time here and one of the guests had been here before three years ago and it was possibly one of the worst evenings we ever had. Where shall I start? So the main entrance to the restaurant was blocked, we had signage to use the side entrance but no manager to greet us. Then we were met by a rather unhelpful manager…sour face, seriously why work in the industry if you are not going to even give your guests a warm smile/welcome?
Some of our wine glasses tasted of strong dishwasher tablet, no apology but our wine glasses were changed. Food was hit and miss…some good choices and menu looked very tantalising but on arrival, I would not rate the food too high. Mains looked a lot better but meat was not cooked to our specifications…i.e. three of our rack of lamb which we asked for as medium rare…came out rare and had to be sent back.
The saving grace was some excellent wines we had but food and service..I know we can spend our £80+ per head somewhere else next time and this would certainly not be our first choice to go back again.
I wished I had read the reviews before I came to this place and put my foot down in not going…when you spend that kind of money, you need to up your game, big time.
