Yeah, much the same as my experience. Indifferent staff, chef ironing his
whites on a nearby table (!), asked (rather rudely) 3 times were we sure
the starter that we sent back wasn't to our liking. etc etc

It's a real shame cos the location and building are outstanding.

Never eaten there, but heard good things and I'm dying to see the
hydraulic bar....

Can't recommend the Red Snapper on Chandos road enough. I'm a huge fish
fan anyway, but the food is outstanding and very reasonably priced.

Bysantium is good too, if a little un-intimate.
