High and Lows.
We arrived 1hr early for our table as we fancied a drink in the pub opposite before whilst we waited for ourfriends to arrive. As we had booked our reservation on line a good few weeks before we thought it best to pop our heads in to check that our table was still available. The gentleman waiter was polite and funny and he confirmed our reservation and we told him we'd be back at our time. 1hr later we were disappointed to hear that our table had been given away. Odd. We were then accused of missing our time and that was why it was given away which of course would have been fair had we actually missed our table. Had the restaurant not sent so many reminder emails we may have questioned our memory but out came out email proof and true as we said the table was booked at the time we had said. Even with email proof we were made to feel like it was our fault some how. Anyway they found us a table which I'm not sure would have been available had we been 10mins late for our actual reservation as it was so busy. We were all very excited about the deal. A Burger, chips and either a glass prosecco or a beer. Staff were friendly thought our meal but we're very poorly attentive. I don't mean they didn't come and pull my chair out or poorbwater every 5 minutes I'm talking about poor service. We asked for a soft drink on 4 occasions which eventually turned up and asked for our sauces twice. The food was excellent hence the 3 stars rather than 2 and it was made incredibly fast which was impressive. Following our burger we had been given the dessert menu but again we were disappointed as 15minutes past by and no-one came to take our order. So we decided to settle our bill for a single soft drink and leave. When we finally got the waiters attention we asked for the bill. On his first attempt he had forgotten to adjust the bill to take account of the voucher which was an easy mistake to make. When we got our bill it was again incorrect and we had been charged for 2 cocktails we had not ordered. We could not wait any longer so we got up and settle the bill with the waiter at the bar and left to have our desserts at another restaurant.
I highly recommend the burgers they were excellent, the restaurant style and decor was lovely but the staff were beyond and the poor service frustrated us diminishing our enjoyment.
Went here with 2 friends all of us agreed, we were not too impressed by the burgers they were all overcooked leaving not much taste to them, I had the Veni-Moo. The chips were nothing special considering the high priced. Although I did like the decor.
Delicious food at reasonable prices. Great drink selection. The atmosphere here is lovely and cosy with very good service. Venimoo burger recommended
I was excited to try Mac & Wild but I must admit to being a little cautious about the venison dominated menu (they also do beef, but I didn't want to be boring) - I needn't have been, turns out I do like venison after all. I went for the steak frites and it was delicious. The meat was excellent quality (very, very tasty but not overly rich or gamey as I had feared) and cooked to perfection, as were the frites. The haggis pops and fish bites were also popular around our table. I couldn't quite manage dessert though the sticky toffee pudding tried very hard to tempt me. I opted to round the meal off with a scotch coffee instead, which I can recommend - warming and sweet, with a punch. Nice cosy atmosphere too with great service.
