It is not acceptable to switch all the lights on full blast like some nightclub wanting you to leave, we weren't the last table clearly the staff... More

Ordered a pickup and was sitting in there 45 minutes over the time they said! when I chased them up the staff laughed at me and ran off into the kitchen. AWFUL. If there were 0 stars that is what I would rate it.
