Our waitress Annie was exceptional, professional, kind, fun but not too much. Having been to the restaurant before. I’m horrified to know that the waiting staff only get 3% of the service charge. Shame on you Bodeans

The food was lovely and all arrived in good time. Our server was very kind and interacted with our children well; dancing and playing with them. He dealt with all of our dietary requirements well and all with a smile on his face

The group at the meal had a great time. It was the first time since last year that we were able to meet together in a restaurant as a family. We were celebrating my mothers birthday. She had a lovely time, as did we all. Thank you.

Ribs dry and over cooked. Chips over cooked and very dry. Which was a shame... not been to this chain of restaurants for about 6 years... its not the same.

The waitress was nice enough but i wasn't able to exchange pulled pork for a sausage for one of the platters. The waitress was quite unhelpful and said it wasn't possible. Asked if she could ask the kitchen but she said it just wasn't possible and that i needed to order it as a side. Disappointing as it was very much a "computer says no" type situation and impacted my overall experience.
