Eight of us visited Bagots Hutton last Friday to celebrate some birthdays. For the sake of everyone, I'll leave it in points: -The first two who arrived had their drinks orders taken, no bother. I was the third to arrive, and after I was shown to the table, we weren't given a second glance for about 40 minutes. After asking the waiter to help push our two tables together, he then left without taking our orders, and we had to ask him to come back to do so. It seemed woefully understaffed - apparently only the manager and one waiter for the entire restaurant on a Friday evening? All of us had pizzas except two who had a shared cheese/meats board. This board inexplicably arrived ten minutes after the rest of us had all FINISHED our meals. It didn't require any cooking...apparently just forgotten about? - We ordered three bottles of house white, plus one beer. When we asked the price of the house white, our waiter told us 'around 20e' (the beer, we were told, 'around 5e'). Not only were we refused a specific price (which I'm fairly sure is illegal), the wine wasn't 'around 20e'. It was 28e. A significant difference. The beer was also more than a fiver. BUT the worst part was when we came to pay. When it finally came around to getting the bill, we were told it came to a gobsmacking €241. For a group of 8 young women, who had shared mains and drinks. When we queried this, we were dismissed with 'that's what it came to'. We asked for a bill - they don't do bills. We were left to ask for a menu and calculate our balance ourselves (around 180e). Eventually, some of us went back up to them and the manager ever-so-graciously sat himself down with a "so what's the problem?" and a smile, before concluding that indeed, our bill was incredibly off the mark. Apologies were lacklustre - we were told the waiter had been told to go and have a smoke and 'sort himself out', and no concessions were even offered towards our bill. Won't be going back - food, while nice, was nothing special (I had a Four Seasons pizza, which at my count had only had three different vegetables on it). Atmosphere - I'm young, but there's still something sad about a restaurant/wine bar that can't decide whether it wants to be a pub or a club, and so mixes minimal lighting and a dj booth with people who are just trying to have a meal.
