Had a friend recommend it and I have to say, one of the best Steaks I have ever tasted and the Vegtables were clean, crisp and juicy. An English Tudor Style Decor. Will be back, perhaps to taste Pancakes this time. Family run and Nero the Owner who was also waiting the tables was a delight to deal with, very attentive.

Mediocre food and service.

I visited this with my family in February. Food was nothing special and the pancakes rather stodgy. We were surprised that the waiter, when asked for maple syrup, commented that they were short of it and if we really needed more then he would try to find some! In previous visits ( a couple of years... read more

We dined here but unless the service improved will not again. We had 4 couples come in after us, 3 ordered before us as staff just didn't seem interested. 1 couple actually walked out due to lack of staff care. We had to ask for our order twice & then had to wait til the end of our Neal to... More

This restaurant was taken over by new owners approximately over 12 months ago or more. Since then this establishment has been on the decline. Water is placed on the table with glasses. All of the glasses were dirty, one even had food stuck to it. I can forgive one dirty glass but six is inexcusable especially when one is clearly... More

We found the air was stuffy and smelt of burnt oil when we arrived, staff opened the front door and turned on fans possibly having heard us complain after about 30 minutes. The staff were unprepared and the meal took a while to be cooked even on a fairly quite day (approx 40-50 minutes). Prices fine for a family. Garlic... More

Don't waste your time at this place. The interior hasn't been touched since the 1970s. The food was less than average and the staff were commensurate to the rest of the experience. never again.

last time I visited the restaurant was on the market. It is now under new ownership with a revamped menu that includes our old favourites and the addition of waffles. We visited for breakfast, and had a big fry up each with pancakes to share. The food was fresh (though the hash browns were processed) and the serving sizes generous.... More

Arrived at 6pm and was seated at a table after approaching the bar. No greeting "good evening sir, how can i help" Waited about 5 mins then i again approached the bar to ask for a drink and was told i can't order at the bar because it messes up their system. I could have ordered drinks and paid cash... More
