I honestly do not understand why this restaurant has such great reviews. After their re-vamp I heard nothing but people raging on about how amazing the food was, so myself and my family went down for lunch on Christmas eve and it was awful. We waited over half an hour to even get served and then the main courses took close to an hour. There seemed to be a complete lack of management as the servers - although all polite - were all over the place. It was an overall horrible experience but after hearing months of great reviews we decided to give it another try - after all Christmas Eve is a rough day for any restaurant. The experience was equally awful. The service was slightly quicker, but the food had taken a dive. Our chips tasted stale/like they had been thrown into a deep fat fryer more than once, the curry was mostly cream and the roast was rubbery - like it had been left under the heater all day. The deserts tasted like the cheap pastry cases you can buy from Lidl. Overall it was a complete disaster and I cannot understand how the rating is so high, it seems like a joke!
