Absolutely awful experience. Slow service at bar and in the restaurant. Food cold when it arrived, was not offered any condiments, had to find someone to ask. Food was returned, at the extremely high price of a Christmas lunch, this was not acceptable. Food was...More

This is a very poor restaurant. The service is awful - there is only one waitress and she is stressed and lots of wrong orders and delayed service (order and food). Food is very average.

Went for a meet with someone in the bar who was late, luckily.. After 20 mins and having completely read the free newspaper near the bar no staff showed up at all during that time.. Left and reconvened at the Thames hotel up the road..
