First of all my food took 50 minutes to be made and then when it came it was cold and the meat was dryer than a nuns downstairs area. Furthermore when I confronted the manager about this she told me to buy another and that I could not get it refunded. I then ordered a pint of Fosters as they had no good options so I made do but when i saw it being brought over I saw the waitress taking gulps out of it and say “sorry it’s just been a long day”. It was 1:10 for Christ sake the absolute rat den had only been open for one hour. Anyway when I went to get up and leave one of the staff (who was the same one that was taking gulps out of my pint) pointed out I hadn’t left a tip…

Service was very slow,and poorest took 3 quarters of am hour from ordering to coming to table with no explanation as to why from the staff.
After the main course went even offered the opportunity to order a sweet.
Felt not wanted because we had a toddler with us

Would NEVER go back
