I've been here twice, both times have been off peak. They always amaze me by telling me the wait is long as there are no tables when there are clearly lots of tables free but reserved.

This restaurant has really gone downhill. Went yesterday and was served pink chicken that clearly looked as though it hadn't been on the grill long enough. Eventually managed to attract a waitress and told her. She took the meal away so I waited for 10 minutes with no food as my fellow diners ate their meals. My 'new' meal came... More

As a coeliac I need to be confident at a restaurant and unfortunately due to lack of knowledge on Coeliac disease and cross contamination I'm afraid I will be giving it a miss until things improve

service was ok, but the food was not what it used to be. Steak was chewy, my sea bass was full of bones (every mouthful). i just could not eat it. Everyone's corn on the cob was freezing as if it had just come from the fridge and dumped on the plate. my mums chicken was undercooked and was sent... More

Siobhan is a very nice lady, we had a few issues with our little boy so she asked if we were ready,which we weren't! She left it about 5 minutes, our starters and little boy's dinner came up promptly after that as did my 2nd pot of tea. Thank you Siobhan! X

I was told they couldn't do it with out sugar as it would sink. This really gets on my nerves, as... More
