Another visit and again we all left full and with smiles on our faces. Can't fault the food in any way, 4 clean plates says it all. Have my loyalty card filled p ready to use next time. Keep up the good work.

Ate here several times and food is grand. Nothing to get excited about. The staff are usually helpful and kind but we did go in one Saturday recently and we needed a highchair as we always do with our 2 year old and we stood for ages until my husband asked a young girl for one. She just said they're... More

Had a fantastic night last night at the Bistro. Food was such a high quality and I actually couldn't fault it! The steak and rib combo is a must for a Saturday night; steak was cooked perfectly and their champ is just the best! Everyone was just so pleasant and couldn't have done more to make it such an enjoyable... More

When we told the waitress she muttered something, lifted the plates and went. I am convinced that she just microwaved the food and gave us the same plates back. If you... More

We had yet another fantastic meal here tonight. Due to my wife having to eat gluten free we were delighted with the choices available. The slow cooked braising steak was simply to die for (I had it as well). The staff were extremely knowledgeable about coeliac disease and could not have been more helpful. This made the overall experience of... More

We have been to this restaurant quite a few times for family occasions such as birthdays etc and we have always found the service great. On the down side their menu is fairly limited and they will not vary it. For example one of our party asked for a small portion of chips and a small portion of rice but... More

The Food was good,reasonably priced and a varied menu was on offer. Staff were friendly and helpful but the dining room in the restaurant is a little bit gloomy, perhaps redecorating would help. I will definitely be back.
