Good service, lovely venue, very accommodating

Some food came out slightly cold, maybe as it was a big party? Overall positive experience

The two waiters serving the downstairs private room were really nice and helpful they were the only good thing about our experience.

The food was horrible. The steak was literally disgusting none of my guests could eat it. The manager (bearded man) was so rude and unhelpful - one of my guests couldn’t turn up which I let the venue know about 5 hours before but they still served up her pre-order and made me pay for it. Even though they could have just not cooked the food they had enough notice. They said the food was ordered from before but the venue was so busy that literally it was not going to waste. He was so unprofessional and rude I do not recommend this place for any function/event you are planning.

Booked the dining room for a 30th birthday- the team were amazing for letting us set up before our booked time and service through out was amazing. Accommodating staff and friendly!

Only issue was Bluetooth music kept cutting out but apart from that everything was great! Thank you
