July 11: The girls and I have been trying to make a lunch booking at The Stables Bar twice before, but on both of those occasions (one was 1 day before and one was 2 days before) were told that they are fully booked, so this time around I called to book 2 weeks in advance.
One of the benefits of having a lunch booking, is that we get to pre-order our food in advance so that we don't have to waited forever for it to come out, or so I thought. As requested at time of booking, I sent in our pre-order form a day in advance. Come Thursday morning, one of the girls wanted to change her order. I called The Stable Bar right away to make that change.
At 1pm we rocked up and got seated at our reserved table. Moment later, a waitress came around and gave us their lunch menu. I told her that we've already pre-order our meals. She looks confused but took the menu away anyway. Later, another one came out to say that our pre-order lunches are not substantial enough and ask if we wanted to order some more. We said no and are happy with what we have ordered.
Love the decor; the food was ok, a bit over-priced but the service upstairs was just terrible. Not impressed at all.
On a positive note, Miss Katie and I have dined downstairs once before and the service there was so much better.
