Had meals here over the years and have always been excellent. But called in on Wednesday at 8.30pm on the way back from an unexpected visit so desperate for something to eat. There were tables empty in the restaurant and in the bar. But got told by the waiter they had 2 large parties coming in so couldn't accommodate us. Thought this a bit odd at the time as it was just gone 8.30pm. I did wonder afterwards if this was because they didn't want to serve anymore people. I was very upset afterwards as I felt fobbed off.
