So ive read a number of reviews on this site and felt compelled to write my own , after visiting the restaurant last saturday for my fiancees bday.
We were a group of 8, and unfortuntely didnt think ahead enough to see if we could book one of the limited group tables, so we had to queue to get our table.
However we knew this was likely, and expected about a 90 minte wait. Therefore as we wanted to eat about 9ish we all met at the restaurant at 7.30, got into the queue system and were told it was likely to be about a 2 hour wait.
We took the pager and went to the pub next door where two hours flew by . Our pager flashed and we went to our table. The waitress was very friendly and helpful , told us all the specials and know about every item on the menu.
We ordered the meat/veggie boards for starter which were delicious, then a combination of steaks and pasta were ordered. I had a pork dish which was fantastic, very tender. I would happily go there again, people just need to remember there is a system to not getting annoyed by the wait:
Get there much earlier than you want to eat, get in the queue, then have a few drinks, then you are fine. The best part of the experience, was the bill, we drunk 4 litres of wine, and the bill came to 30 quid a head.
I have paid a lot more money for food and service that good.If they did take bookings it would get booked well in advance meaning what we did last wknd just couldn't have happened.
Basically don't go to this restaurant if you are expecting to sit down straight away, you wont, but if you are happy to wait its worth it.
