We were there for a party on a Saturday night, booked for 14 people at 8pm, 11 arrived. No water on the table, asked 3 times before it was brought out and then it was only 2 small jugs between the lot of us. No bread on the table. It's bring your own bottle but we weren't asked if anyone wanted minerals or if we needed ice for the wine. After we had all arrived, we were waiting over 20 minutes before one of us went up to look for menus. Took ages for a waitress to come to take the order. Another hour and a half later the food arrived in dribs and drabs. 20 minutes between the first plate and the last arriving. With several of the orders being the same, I'm not sure what the delay was. 10.20 before everything was served. No one came to check if everything was alright between bringing the food and clearing it. Food mediocre at best. Side salad consisted of a few wilted leaves of lettuce, one wedge of tomato and a slice of onion. Chips OR veg, god forbid you might want both! We asked for the cake to be brought out, another 15 minutes waiting for this. No plates, knife or cutlery brought out with it. When it was brought, not enough plates. Asked for tea which was never brought. Service absolutely non-existent. If it hadn't been a party I would've kicked up a fuss, but didn't want to bring down the mood. Shouldn't have accepted the booking if they couldn't cater for a group of that size. Chips were nice though.
