Previous visits have gone well but tonight out of five ribeye steaks three went back with almost as much steak as they came out with the meat was full of fat and was a struggle to eat. I think it's safe to say we won't be going back.

Was really impressed with the overall experience; so glad it has reopened and obviously by people who understand the area and recognised what was needed. Lovely to have somewhere close to home that is welcoming and with a really decent menu.

My wife and I visited the "Wainy" for a late friday afternoon lunch. On the specials board there was a wide choice of meals. We both chose the same starter of garlic mushrooms on bruschetta bread with a drizzle of balsamic glaze and it was lush. We both had the same main meal of Burritos filled with mince lamb and rice with dusted chips and side salad which was very fullfilling. Again we loved the main which was stunning and was washed down with a pint of my favourite Peroni beer on tap. The wife kindly stuck to the coffee as she was driving for a change. Apparently we were guinea pigs, being the first for the new special menu and our choice was spot on. Our compliments to the chef waiting staff, and management for a memorable visit.

Not been there since it reopened but have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Decently priced menu. Good drink selection. Food was very tasty and service was quick and friendly. Can feel another visit coming on in the near future.
