Yesterday me & my family went for a roast dinner and it was the worst I’ve ever tasted. Drinks also took about 20 minutes to come out. The beef was full of fat and not edible, only given two small roast potatoes which were dry,...More

Very much worse than the last time I visited. Service slow. Side plate on table dirty. Starter of salmon tacos was good. Linguini was burnt and seemed to have been fried or was just oily. I have never had burnt crispy pasta like this before....More
