Hi Bexyboo....
I will keep this Brief...
Just look at previous reviews...
Look at our car park at opening times..
And you make a statement saying we cannot cook..... first is your palette ok ?
Our highly trained chef literally produce food second to none... not my words... from regular customers.
Maybe you had to much Gin.... it can sometimes affect your taste buds and even your judgment I really don't know....
You say never again...... it's your choice... but I assure you your seat will not go empty....
But we all wish you look in getting food to match the quality of your Gin....
