Thank you for your review. As you can see from our past reviews, we have excellent staff here who provide outstanding service to our guests, and are praised quite often by name for 'going the extra mile' - your review came as quite a shock as this is not the usual standard that we would provide...more so when the person you are referring to was myself. I think there is slight fabrication in your comments, and looking at all the other reviews you have done on other venues you have visited, it appears that you review the same feedback regularly to different places. For reiteration, we were a part of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme and served hundreds of happy customers during this time.

Thank you for your review! We are pleased to hear that you, overall, enjoyed your stay with us, and that our team here were friendly and welcoming. I have passed your comments onto our Head Chef to look into the 'salty' food, as this is a new comment, therefore we can hopefully quickly rectify this.
