Chicken schnitzel was not properly cooked - too thick and inedible. Staff insisted it was properly cooked but eventually replaced with another dish

We had to leave, the noise was unbelievable.
If you are aware that there will be a major sporting event televised on multiple screens where we are going to eat you should let us know at the time of booking.
It will cost you nothing and gain you goodwill.

I marked 'FAIR' on things that we did not avail ourselves of because we had to GO.

Because we cannot know what 'event' will be happening there that can have the effect of making the room uninhabitable we can't go back again.

I was disappointed with the overall experience. I was greeted by a very unfriendly lady who was obviously too busy writing a list to seat me. She preceded to yell very loudly in my face for one of her other staff to seat me - at a table that was honestly not 1 metre away from where she was standing. Not sure why she couldn’t put her pen down for a small moment and direct me to the table.
When I was first seated the lights were off, there was no music on.
After ordering while waiting for our meal- the waiter came over and requested the other half of our table for another group... all good, we didn’t need the seats. However before we had the chance to move our belongings he had picked up our drinks by the rim and moved them. I understand he was trying to help however it’s pretty unhygienic to handle someone else’s glass at the part they drink out of with your hands - I’d imagine it would be one of the first things a bartender learns- especially with the presence COVID-19.
From there another bar girl came and turned on the TV’s but the volume was still blaring from when it was last on. Obviously not her fault but still really impacted the overall ambience of the room- at this stage it was just past dusk and the lights were still off. It was getting pretty hard to read the menu in there.
My schnitzel was ok apart from the chips being way over salted and my slaw tasting of soured mayo. I did have to chase cutlery and the extra gravy I’d ordered. My friends pork chop on the other hand was inedible- it was tough as a boot. Luckily the portion size of the mash was so plentiful she didn’t go home hungry. We didn’t get the chance to tell the waiter as they never came today check how things were before we promptly left. Overall this was a below average experience, it’s easy to see why there were very few tables occupied. I’d say it stems from very inexperienced staff or staff who couldn’t care less which is a shame because the fit out and vibe of the pub is great.

I normally have the great chicken schnitzel. I was disappointed with the rump steak this visit. Wasn’t cooked particularly medium rare, and was only luke warm. Friendly guys behind the bar on the rooftop.
