We enjoyed our visit. Were seated quickly and the booth seating although looking a little dated was comfortable. Maybe a touch up of the existing chairs and tables could be done but I'd not suggest swapping out for chairs. They don't make it easy to find a menu online in advance of going but the menu is availible outside and... More

Went here around 1030 am as no where else open for breakfast. Only two waitresses on and it was quite busy. Service a bit slow but very friendly, a bit expensive for what it was. Breakfasts although done in deep fat fryer and cheaper items it was freshly cooked. Would go back as service friendly. Could do with another waitress... More

After picking up our grand daughter from school and a brief shopping expedition, we called at the. Pancake Place for a snack. The seating near the entrance and tables were too low, although we were offered seating further into the restaurant. Service was reasonably quick and the two waitresses that served us were very friendly. However I felt prices were... More

Visited for our lunch place has never changed however the service and standards certainly have. Was seated promptly however after having placed order for two soup and Sandwich deals proceeded to wait 20 minutes for it. Then soup was gloupy and lukewarm. Sandwich was limp and unappealing. 10 minutes after notifying waitress about soup temperature was still waiting for it... More

First and the last time here... Place itself is ok, booths are nice, place is rather clean. But food and service are not so good. Waitress made mistake with daughter's order - fortunately correct one came quick. But that's the end of good news. I ordered veggie burger - which is a plain bun and burger, no tomato or lettuce,...

Visiting our daughter and on her recommendation we visited the Pancake Place. Friendly staff and quick service. My wife had soup and a sandwich, my daughter pancakes and I the BFG burger. All hot, fresh and good value. Well worth the visit and would recommend.

Very few restaurants were open on Sunday and we picked the worst of them -a round of sandwiches on not very fresh bread and ghastly margarine followed by huge, tasteless pancakes - good grief you would be hard pushed to find worse food at the price they charge - it was £20 for this damned rubbish. I would say avoid... More

Used to come here quite often and it was ok. Never been anything special, but today was shocking. Daughter had sausages, chips and beans and they were just cheap fried to a crisp sausages with greasy chips and cheap beans. I had a burger and there are some burger vans that serve better meat than the burger I had. Overpriced... More
