I could not take it anymore and gave in and went to bar for a pint or 2 or 3. Makes it sound like I needed it, no I just found out the pub down the block was open to have a seat and have some drinks.It is nice to be out of the house and to see some old friends, its been so long. Every group is at different tables just sitting with the people they came in with and we are way more than 2 meters apart. I am worried once everything is up fully this place will be packed as normal.
Now being from a state that has a LOT of room (Nevada) between cities and even homes,people see to group up at bars and casinos. One of the friends I saw here tonight was so ready for the “restrictions” to be done with and said that Covid was way over done by “the media” and seemed annoyed it happened.
Since I started this post the “casino” part of the bar opend and we got to the pub about a half hour after opening and it was packed. They are only seating so many people at the bar where the gaming machines are so you have to wait in a Q to game. Saw some others friends and it’s nice to be almost back to norm.
Went there on a Groupon ticket , paid $130 dollars for 2 tickets. Found out if you buy the tickets at the door on Thursday they cost $39 pounds each. Our tickets covered the meals and the show , I got 2 bottles of 28 pound wine and 2 extra glass’s at 18 pounds. The bill came and it was 130 pounds , they charged us for bread we didn’t order and “other fee’s ” they said. So a night out at this place cost me $500. US I would avoid it. In my opinion . Visit was on the 5th November.
Updated : I have been in contact with “Alex Proud”is the name the email comes in from
“Tickets on the door are show only? Not for a meal?!! So that is not true?!
Dinner tickets are £50 or $80 at least?
You chose what wine you ordered? Did we make you buy it? There was £19 wine?! You chose to buy the wine, how is that our fault?
Sides are charged extra, as they are at most restaruants? Esp when Group on?
And we do sell the programme, if you don’t like it we can refund it and on the night or after we are happy to do this
So what exactly is it you think we did wrong?
After I explained to him about the extras and service fee’s again I sent him this :
My response “The bill was 116.81 pounds , what I drank was 74 pounds. What I see as the difference is 42.81 pounds, is what I’m disputing. ” And the reviews will be corrected to say that there was a miss understanding to what was covered by the Groupon and I worked with Alex from Proud Cabaret to correct the issue .”
Alex Proud responded asking how much it would cost? (to make this go away is how I took it ) asking me to take the reviews down.
It has been over a week and I have not heard back….
