Over the last few years we have used Fredericks for a pre-theatre meal prior to going to Sadlers Wells. We did the same this Saturday. Arrived promptly at 5.50pm needed to be in and out by 7.10ish. They knew this, even had the cheek when checking to confirm our reservation in the afternoon to ask that we were out of there by 7.45. I replied then that it would help for once if they got us finished on time. For the third time in a row they were unbearably slow with their service. We ordered from the simple "pre-theatre" type menu. We didn't get our main course until 6.45 after having nagged several times. And in the end there was no time for a dessert. This seems to happen every time for us with them - if it is not waiting an excessive time for the food it is waiting for the bill and we end up in an avoidable rush every time - so no more. A pity because the food is good and the room very pleasant - but the service is appalling.
