I will be visiting The French House for the first time next Monday when I hope to enjoy convivial company with professional wine brokers but on reading the comments contained in the remarks from visitors as recent as the 15th June 2014 I am filled with dread at the possibility of bad mannered and surly staff!
I tried to telephone the number indicated in the website but was told that despite using my landline and disclosing my ex-directory number there was a recorded message stating that " this service is not compatible with this call".
Perhaps this is all part of the perceived "French Belligerent Charm" that clearly does not sit well with the majority of patrons so why do the owners not acknowledge the complaints as they cannot all be wrong or is it me?
How do they take reservations and how or why are they still in business?
I usually have better things to do with my day than become involved in these comment pages but as a Senior Citizen I do not wish to waste time and money travelling from Hampshire for an Away Day Tipple only to find that it was ruined by staff that should have attended an anger management and charm school course.
If the owner/owners read these comments I would be delighted to establish from them if they consider the criticisms valid or that all the patrons criticism is not justified.
