Quick review on RYN20 before I forget about it...

All things considered, it was a great event; a significant improvement on my last experience in this branch. We had the a long table laid out for us on the lower level of the branch, towards the back of the restaurant and cutlery/sauces were nicely laid out for us, along with glasses for free soft drinks. Randomly, there isn't a water dispenser or on the lower floor, only soft drinks, but it's a solid 4/5 this visit based on the effort taken.

Easy 5/5 for staff and speed - especially considering the usual mass ordering session going on, it was definitely the quickest I've ever seen everyone get served at one of these events (*technically probably waited 5-10mins for my food, but I'll let that slide given the circumstances). Had a butterfly burger, peri chips, garlic bread and a double halloumi. Was almost perfect, just lacked that little bit extra sauce but no harm done; just misses out on 5/5 on the fact that there was no 'wow factor' that set this meal apart from others, but it was very good.

Staff were superb; greeted upon entry, led me downstairs and then ordering, serving and post-serving all went swimmingly. Oh, and I was finally 11th time lucky on the raffle so good times all round. Actually, on second thoughts, I'll up food to 5/5, why not! (I'm in a good mood since Liverpool won)

Oh, one final rather odd downside is that in the men's toilets, the urinals are quite low down...
