thanks for the tip Sippo, will check it out next anniversary Smiley

@Rob, yeah it was slow, that was disappointing. it was the being ignored that really annoyed me. especially after explicitly strating I wanted to taste the micro brewery beers. still in the past now. Looking at recent TripAdvisor reviews it's got worse!

I still suspect that slow service is almost entirely down to their aspiration that you will drink more whilst you are waiting, there was a place in Lancaster that was well known for not even seating you (even if you had booked) until you had ordered a second drink whilst waiting, an order of tap water used to speed them along!

aha. that's the point. not once did a waitress/waiter stop at our table to ask if we wanted another drink, ended up literally chasing one. gave up in the end.

also not once did they advise the main course was going to be a 90 minute wait.

You must have the patience of a saint. Both the wife and I hate lousy service and I think we may have left the restaurant way beyond the time the board had come out for injury time.

I'd be getting extremely twitchy on 40 minutes or so. That's around the time I'd be expecting free drinks and stuff.

Ordinarily it would be a walk out, but we were taxi dependent - it was our anniversary so we thought we'd have some alcy-hol to celebrate.

T'was a few years ago now mind.

Think they may be safe there,   Lancaster would be one hell of a fare in a taxi.

Miller & Carter is literally just a posh Harvester? Surely at that price point you can do better than an M&B owned mega chain?

Itís our 9 year anniversary today. I have pushed the boat out. No pasta bake tonight. A wood fired pizza yellow labelled from marks and Spencer (£2.70 down from £6) and some aldi halloumi fries.

Definitely getting some tonight...
