    The service was pretty bad. Had to ask twice for wine glasses and an ice bucket and then they were just placed on the table. Bottle not opened for us or wine poured. Dessert was very disappointing. Just plain churros with 2 small pots of choc and butterscotch sauce - very dry and boring. My lamb was very nice thankfully.

    It was Father’s Day, so it was busy. But we had to wait 15mims at the table before we asked for a menu. Asked 3 times for water which we got at the end of the meal. Food and coffee was good and tasty. The staff were friendly. I later waited about 5 minutes to be served at the counter to pay my bill when 4 staff members were standing around. Overall I like the restaurant but it would benefit from more attentive staff.

    The usually efficient staff were not. Drinks and meals did not come out together.

    Better prices would be great! Sticky date pudding is beyond a 10.

    We have been with a group time each time and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The service is friendly and the food is nice and reasonably priced.

    Very slow for main meals and food quite average for the price which is quite pricey for what you get and not the most amazing presentation especially the pork belly

    We understood that it was mothers day but did have to wait an hour and a half for our food, the table next to us also did but were offered their beverages for free as way of an apology.

    Meals are on the more expensive side. Glass of Shiraz tasted like it had been open for a week.

    Service was very good - friendly and flexible (willing to modify some of the menu options). Menu range was limited. Prices were reasonable.

    I could only give 0 points this time as I was Very disappointed that I was not contacted from Sandbar that they were closed for renovation on the day I was confirmed for a breakfast for 5 people. I will complain in person when they reopen. Usually we were happy about their food and service.

    Booked a table of 5, but seemed completely unaware when we got there - had to wait a few minutes while they re-organised tables. Service was OK and food was fantastic. Will go back

    Location great. Menu varied. Unfortunately steak not that tender although tasty, particularly the wine chili sauce.
