Haven't been here for years and it was my other half's first visit, wasn't disappointed! We popped in for a sandwich and a drink and were made to feel very welcome by the friendly and smart staff. We both had a prawn sandwich which came beautifully presented and with perfect fresh bread well filled with prawns.Will certainly be back!

What a difference from the last time that we ate in this restuarant! I gave a glowing review and described it as the best in the area, after the meal that we had this week it now ranks as the worst. We had the Moroccan lamb stew with roast sumac potatoes at £12.25. The lamb stew was a small dollop... More

Went for a lovely meal up the towers food came out hot and quickly . Compliments To the chef who I found out was Ricky. But I wasn't happy with the manager to who I think was called Paul , he was Arrogant and rude and was listening to our Conversation ..

We chose The Towers for our works Christmas meal, never again. The food was disgusting, I mean how can you go wrong with a roast dinner for gods sake?! The sprouts tasted sour like they were off, the whole meal was barely warm, the beef so overcooked, looked grey and so tough I gave up trying to cut it, and... More

We went there for my birthday with my friends. We all disappointed because the food was not as good as we expected. Fancy names on the menu but didn't turn out good at all. It did not justify with the price they charged. In fact there were only us and a few people in this well decorated restaurant, so the... More

Booked here for a family Sunday roast dinner and was offered a 5pm slot. What mistake. Received a cremated meal with dry tough meat, semi-raw veg, burnt Yorkshire pudding and bullet roast potatoes. After requesting new Yorks they were delivered almost raw- yuk. Walked out after politely complaining to the Chef directly. That meal was heated left overs from their... More
