On 16/12/2023 at around 19.30pm, had dinner at mama shelter. Food was delicious but choices of wine limited, we had to contend ourselves with one of their house wines as nearly all what was listed was not available. After the meal we were contemplating on either having a dessert or coffee when a manager came up to us and impolitely asked us to hurry up as they were expecting other customers in the next 20 minutes in an empty restaurant!!!!!...we deliberately stayed longer to see if people were coming but did not see anyone.. we even complained to the nice lady that was serving us but she couldn't do anything as she said"its one of the managers ' its a shame as this is a local spot and would have been more vibrant and customers service focused if their attitude towards customers can be improved.

Bar review. Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear. Been coming here on and off since it opened. Service ain't what it was. We were sat in a far corner table. Well it really was Siberia. Getting attention was quite tortuous. After a 20 min wait to order our 3rd round we gave up. And that included me going up and trying to order from the bar. This confused the barman no end. And still no one turned up to take our order. So we paid up. On the way out I did point out why we were leaving. One guy was apologetic, his colleague decided to argue the toss asked where were sat and said, We don't offer table service there. Yes. You. Do. Nobody around us was ordering from the bar. If you were prepared to wait... and wait... you got served. Slow service is one thing telling your patrons they are wrong is a whole other level of bad service.
