Had high hopes. Interesting venue, great view, shabby chic decor, child friendly. Tick.
Service lackadaisical at best; rude at worst.
Disinterested waitress who never smiled. Even though only 2 others in the restaurant it took too long for our order to be taken and for the food to arrive. The drinks were prompt.
Medium rare steak was medium. Medium one was medium rare. Had they go them the wrong way round I asked? Waitress did not know and headed off to ask. By then too late to swap as half of one had been eaten. Asked for mine to be re cooked. It arrived when all had finished. Spinach side was cold and unevenly cooked. Chips were great, but man cannot live on chips alone. Puddings looked great and generous. Profiteroles were hard – over refridgerated? All in all, expensive ordinary. £270 for 5 people.
Crowning glory on departure. Could not find coats which had been taken by waitress. Waiter gestured to hooks with many coats on. Couldn't find coats. Asked him to help. He said “Just look”. When I said I had but couldn't find them he shrugged. I said that was not great service. He said “Don't come back then”.
