My husband and I sat at the bar forever without drinks. Multiple waitstaff and bartenders walked by without acknowledgement. So much for customer service!

I ate in the Enclosure Bar one evening whilst staying in the Clayton Hotel. Despite being quite a large restaurant, there was initially no spare table as the lay-out of the room was nearly all tables for 4, which were occupied by either singles or couples. After ordering a drink at the bar, a table was eventually vacated and I... More

Bad, bad, bad. We ate here twice because the hotel is so far away from the city, we thought this would be easier and quicker, especially since we just wanted a light dinner the first night, and drinks only the second night. The first night we ate here, the bar was not busy but our waiter seemed like he was... More

Ate here on 12th june, the staff were friendly enough, service a bit slow, asked for jug of water about 5 times before we got it. Other that that the food was okay. Not sure if I would go back.

This has not been the first time we have noticed the rudeness and generally unwelcoming nature of the two bar men on a... More
