After 20 mins and drinking a flat pint of lager for £6.00 we were abruptly asked what we wanted, no how you guys doing, what would you like please, it was literally what you having!?
We ordered our food, the starters came, steaming hot…. Nope, Luke warm but it was so cold the food looked really hot, however, edible.
I was looking for a waitress or barman as the second pint served was also flat so wanted it changed, to no avail so halfway through my starters I waved a barman down after he looked at me then looked away even though I had my hand up like a school child trying to get my teachers attention. I received a pint and was told I hope this ones not good enough then we need to change your drink.
We received our mains and it tasted fantastic.
We finished and asked for our bill, it arrived and the really nice waitress, different the one we had before told us that a 10% charge had been added and that we hoped we were ok with that.
I paid the bill paying only a 7% charge on top of the original bill. Not sure why, to save the embarrassment I think.
We then got up to go, walked passed the bar only to be stared at by the small chap with dark hair behind the bar, not a thanks enjoy your evening, not anything just a stare!?? Great food, the building needs heating and most of the staff need to be trained and us customers paying good money do not need to be served by pompous people that are currently employed. I knew the previous owner Eric very well and he would have never put up with the customer service that we are receiving these days.
