My boyfriend and I went here one Sunday afternoon for a roast. When we arrived we found they had started their Christmas meals so we decided to have that. Although the roast and pudding were tasty, the pudding was obviously microwaved as mine was cold in parts and then in others scalding! The service was also abysmal! There was a... More

Was rushed to pick something smaller because they had turned the gas off 20 minutes before the serving time of 9 oclock.

Have been here a few times with the wife as a quick means of dinner, we have always found it big and miss. Our last visit the food arrived very quick (which it did not the time before despite being the only people in there) but the chef clearly did not know the menu as parts of the advertised meal...

What can I say. Took the children to the wacky warehouse. They enjoyed the play time and we thought we might as well have dinner while we were there. We ordered two all day breakfasts, one children's chicken nugget meal with salad and a burger and chips. You know it's time to worry when the bacon comes out burnt but... More

food was very bland, forgot sides to some of the orders, service was poor, they started to clear plates about 2 then did not return to clear the rest, after 15 minutes we had to ask for empty plates to be removed so we could have our granddaughters birthday cake.

Oh dear, oh dear , oh dear. I genuinely and honestly thought places as bad as this disappeared in the 1980's. Went for a meal with some friends and I would have to drone on for a long time to go into all the detail of the body so I will just give my thoughts on the basics. The premises... More
