Very unwelcoming staff. Ignored for 20mins and then treated like we shouldn't be there. This restaurant is expensive, with no service. We won't be returning. Extremely disappointing and embarrassing to sit there being ignored.More

Disappointing slow service, cold main courses and mash that tasted of oil points to a slow and badly run kitchen and lack of sufficient floor staff.More
