Rude staff behind the bar. I ordered a tuna sandwich and it tasted of petrol. When I got to the bar the waitress was rude and told me to wait while she sorted the till very abruptly. I told her about my sandwich and I still had to pay even though I hadn’t eaten any of it. Not

We can only apologise that the customer service you received from our bar staff was not as you would expect. Our staff are usually praised for their friendly service. We will speak to our staff with the complaints that you have raised. Unfortunately for parties of 10 or more we don't split the bill due to past issues of full payment not being received. We do require customers to place drinks orders at the bar of which you can place on the bill. We hope that you will dine with us again and see an improved service. We have made further investigations and identified the employee that you mentioned who was sat at the bar. This lady had actually finished her shift at 6pm and was having a drink with her father, however the behaviour that you describe is not condoned by us and she has been dealt with in the appropriate manner.
