I came here to eat with my friend two nights ago, was really looking forward to it. I arrived and had a cocktail on my own, which was perfectly nice, pricey, but not beyond what you'd expect for the Kings Road.
We were then seated, by a nice waitress who was brunette. I asked if I could charge my phone, and she said that was fine and took it behind the bar.
We ordered food, and my mussels arrived with grit, in a completely tasteless sauce which could have been milk, and lukewarm. The waitress also at this point changed, to a tall woman with short blonde hair, who LITERALLY eye-rolled and huffed when we asked to order anything. She looked me up and down numerous times judging my attire, and was even whispering to a male member of staff about my friend and I, quite obviously. When we went out for a cigarette, and I asked to borrow some matches, the bartender said to this blonde waitress, 'See, I told you they weren't going out to smoke a spliff'.
When the meal ended, I did not complain about the terrible food, I asked as politely to have my phone back. The blonde waitress LITERALLY rolled her eyes into the back of her head, looked me up and down and said 'ughhhhh', then stormed off. I literally felt like crying I felt so judged, like I must have worn the wrong clothes to the restaurant or something. When she returned it, she slammed it down and it had not been put onto charge at all, just left behind the bar.
I really feel like for the enormous price the bill came to, I should not have left feeling judged, not good enough for the establishment, accused of doing drugs which I would not dream of doing, and looked down upon. I really was appalled and upset.
