Took 15 minutes to get serviced and another 20 minutes or longer for our drinks.. Actually it was a lot longer as the starters came over.. Ordered the... More

Restaurant was quiet this evening, but nice Presley songs were playing in the background. We ordered cocktails, Yellow bird and Berries&Cream. For food we ordered Calzone with cajun chicken and Grilled chicken pitta with Louisiana hot sauce with a side of corn, coleslaw and fries. Everything was warm and tasty. Staff were friendly and offered us sauces or ketchup. Took... More

Waited ages for food with my 3 children. Food was inedible. Plates greasy and cutlery had dried food on it. Redeemed slightly by a very professional manager and polite staff. An unusual weekend treat spoilt. We won't go back.

Popped into restaurant for a small supper. Ordered selection of several starters and cocktails. 2 out of 4 starters were still cold and not cooked . In fairness the manager apologised and only charged for the 2 adult cocktails but still not the quality of dining experience we expected.
