I have been going to this establishment for years. Handy to my home. But overtime the menu improved but the atmosphere has worsen.
Its very clicky. Staff often spend most of the time lingering with their clicky homophobic friends. They are also known for repeating things they know about clientele with other coworkers but then some of those workers are telling their friends and other guests all your history.
Daytime lacks staff and often is ones in the kitchen and the bartenders are outside smoking, your left without service. No one to greet you at the entrance and when busy left to seat yourself and quite often the tables are not washed down.
Main bar area seats customers arm to arm. No plexiglass between and often people not from the same households sitting too close to strangers.
Conversations are overheard and then taken out of context.
Waitresses only see 5% of tips and the tipping on their machine starts at 18%. So I think when your tipping mostly for the waitresses this doesn't seem right. Its not for waste, spoilage cause these are covered in the food prices.
The food is good but slightly over priced.
Customers are allowed to move about the room to socialize with others but its a pandemic and this one old disabled guy a regular claims an accountant does so and often without facecoverings. He never showers and smells so bad. If your eating don't sit next to him.
Very clicky and should only be open to staff and friends as otherwise service is lacking. The manager is never to be seen to comment or to see what really goes on and only gets what that staff wants him to hear often incorrect.
If you are gay,lesbian, transgender this is not a place for you. The staff and their friends will be sure to make you feel uncomfortable and sit gossiping. And if you frequent too often they'll create reasons to discriminate and rid you from visiting.
The general manager also makes you feel out of place when he's there.
Come on guys get over it, its 2021. Equality for all. Not like guys are kissing or practically doing it inside the pub unlike straight and some staff do.
Not a friendly place at all, too pricey and don't follow covid protocols fully.
