Went for a late lunch with my family, and there was NO food. What there was left, was dry and tasteless. There was literally nothing in there! Would have appreciated the staff advising there was a wait on food, or they was limited with their options ect but they seated us, and went off, didn’t even take our drinks order.
Ended up walking out and moving to somewhere else to eat.

Took my family there on Mother’s Day.
Best place to go if you are thinking of bumping off your wife with food poisoning.
Food was cold dry and the Italian section consisted of 1 pizza.
I’m making the kids sleep in the bath tonight cos i don’t fancy waking up at 3 in the morning to wash the bed sheets....AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!

Worst meal I've had out in a long time. Food was cold, as were the plates. Very little variety - probably because we were the only people there on a Thursday night at 7.30pm, which in hindsight should have told us something. Everything looked as if it had been hanging about for quite a while so we ate very little, and I threw that up when I reached home. Very disappointing, sub-standard, tepid food. Never again. No wonder they take your money up front!

This place is not worth a visit due to cold food, food that appeared to have been left over from previous meal times and warmed up several times, not very clean, and a lot of the containers that the food was supposed to be in were left empty, on requesting one of the dishes on offer we were informed it would be ready in five minutes but after three request we gave up and the request was not ready by the time we decided to leave.. and £15.99 for the above did seem a tad to much..
I did not say anything at the time but will vote with my feet.
