    Really enjoyed our evening there, a large party of 30 in the back did not disturb us at the front of house, although it did slow the service down a bit, but the food was wonderful!

    Overall:

    Requested a booth downstairs. Restaurant had translated this to table upstairs by the window? Very poor! Food was lovely and the waiter/waitress lovely when you could actually get there attention! Football was being screened and there was no way to avoid the noise overpowering the meal! would have been useful to know they were screening the game when the booking was made!

    Overall:

    Had the ladies night menu (2 for £10.95 or £11.95 including cocktail) and was excellent value. Not full menu but plenty to choose from and huge portions too! Atmosphere was buzzing and service from the ladies upstairs was excellent. Not been to FC for ages but would definitely return.

    Overall:

    A restaurant with lovely ambience but waitresses all seemed to be in a bad mood! The food was ok but we were in the restaurant for a total of 2 hours 20 minutes because service was so slow. A lovely place to have just drinks though as there was a good atmosphere.
