Bastille

Last year Centuria changed to Bastille- what a great SHAME! The new management have presumably never worked in the hospitality business before, as they are rude, abrupt and unwelcoming.

Having lived in the neighbourhood for several years, I will no longer be visiting what was my friendly, cheap & cheerful local that offered good food, drinks & service.

On each recent visit there has been horribly bad techno music playing and even on a quiet Friday night when we asked for it to be changed, for something a little more suitable as we tucked into dinner, they refused. The food- you pay for what you get, but the rather long menu and not many customers makes me wonder about how fresh the produce is. The portions are too big- sometimes, less is best. The wine list is OK- not great.

THe service is the real issue- I could easily write an entire rant on how unwelcome we felt, how unaccommodating they are and how I could't recommend anyone going there. When we tried to make a few suggestions to the "manager" she informed us that we were rude because we we ignored her "good evening" on our arrival. Perhaps because we couldn't hear over the music..
