Really good food.

Food was honestly terrible. As a group of 7 we all left very unhappy and so hungry that we had to go get takeaways after our dinner. We asked to speak to the manager and he refused to speak to us. When he saw us leaving he quickly avoided us. Take note that when they say the pizzas are thin, they're not kidding. They were the width of a piece of paper. This would be 'ok' if there was actually a decent amount of toppings.There was hardly anything on the pizza including cheese. They also use half cheddar cheese on the pizza which is not noted on the menu. We as customers were absolutely ignored....

I am currently making my own meal at 9:30pm after our group left the Lighthouse; after what can only be described as the worse customer interaction I have ever experienced from a manager. The short version... (As I'm really hungry now), we booked for 6:30 for 15 ppl and 18 attended which was handled fine. Drinks where slow to arrive which was understandable with such a large group. The problem came in with the food. Horendously slow. After an hour an a half 4 meals hadent arrived. After complaining that the last meal had arrived so late that the person didn't want it (the cheese wasn't even...
