Food was passable, surf and turf sauce was horrible! My daughter had items missing from her burger and when I took it back no apologies were made to me or to her. Waitress was impatient when taking our order. When desserts were brought out my sons was forgotten completely and after about 10-15 minutes we figured it wasn’t coming and had to ask about it. Again no real apology was made or excuse given. Considering the price portions were decidedly on the small side. I would only go here again as a last resort.

Thank Claire R

On entering we were seated straight away we had already booked, we were asked if that table was alright for us and were told who would be waiting on our table, our drinks order was taken and within a few minutes we had our drinks, our orders for food was taken, our food arrived promptly was hot and cooked very nicely the food was plated up and looked appealing and was very tasty. The staff who waited on our table very friendly and attended to our every need. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, there were several birthday celebrations happening but the staff had everything under control there was no excess noise.

My husband and I together with our youngest granddaughter and her Mum had dinner here on the 22nd March, our waitress Leanne, couldn't have been more helpful, it was a delightful experience as on other occasions.
We had the beef and merlot pie, really nice, my husband had Lasagne and my granddaughter had pasta with meatballs, all very nice, although the garlic bread my granddaughter had was a bit soggy, and the meatballs a bit tasteless according to her Mum, but otherwise good.

Came here with my family as my wife wanted to do breakfast.
I have to say it’s was quite poor.
To start the cups for the coffee we’re not clean and there were a number lying by the clean stack where others had picked them up and left them. Other crockery was similarly unclean.
Hot drinks were served from a flask which is fine but they weren’t particularly hot.
The choice on offer was okay and the cooked breakfast is made to order. Therefore you would expect it to be warm or even hot when served.... Nah!
They also forgot an item but I figured by the time I got it I would have finished anyway so didn’t bother. The place wasn’t particularly busy either.
The restaurant itself is quite dark and feels cramped to me. The toilets stink and more in keeping with a boozer than a restaurant.

Disappointed
