The lunch menus is a greatly reduced menu from the one on line, our waitress was unbelievably rude and her whole persona was appalling think she was more interested in getting her lunch than ours as she proceeded to sit at the table next to us eating her lunch whilst we were still waiting for ours. She brought out filthy plastic tumbler to drink from and thought it was acceptable shame as the other staff appeared to be good but our experience was ruined by then.
