This place did not get off to a good start for us -we arrived at the restaurant at 7.30pm and our meal arrived at 8.40pm. One of the meals (the cod with sauce containing sausages) was served lukewarm. When asked to warm this up, the dish came back slightly colder than it was at the start. As the dish cost... More

A forty minute wait can be berable if staff are polite and truthful. To be constantly told 2 minutes for your food when it is nowhere close is not acceptable. Furthermore, the adult beef dinners were a joke. The only good thing.... Maud's ice cream parlour next door. Will not be back.

Have not been to Shenanigans in ages. Booked a table about a month ago and I would have to say the food was great. Atmosphere was also good. There was a chap in the bar singing nd he was very good. Great Evening.

I don't like to do this but people need to know. We visited Shenanigans on a Sunday evening with family when out for the day. We sat for 45 minutes and no one came near us to take an order. We approached the bar staff and they said they be with us soon. After a further 15 minutes they came... More
