Went for breakfast today as I've been meaning to visit Bonfire for a while. The outdoor facade has a contemporary feel and is different to other restaurants in Dalkeith. Inside, the decor is rustic and, in my opinion, wasn't as modern as I was expecting....More

You have added a comment to say "trip advisor reached out to you asking for you to confirm your experience; if they do not hear from you within 48 hours they will investigate the issue". I have had no e-mails or messages from trip advisor and should I receive something, I assure you I will confirm my experience. My question to you is, why is my honest and accurate review of your establishment being targeted for censorship / investigation? If you provide the bad experience, accept the negative feedback. If you care to speak to your staff and check your CCTV footage, you will find that my review exactly reflects my experience. I suggest you work on improving your product / service rather than battling to remove deserved negative reviews. You almost ruined a special night and it was salvaged through no effort on your part. If my review has breached any trip advisor rules, I will edit it accordingly and re-post for the third time, but the facts will continue to speak for themselves. I will not be censored. I will be contacting trip advisor to understand exactly what was wrong with my original review, to which you replied to apologise incidentally, and to establish what the issue is with my re-posted review. I will also be questioning if the individual flagging my review has any affiliation with Bonfire. Regards. Unhappy customer.
