Like any other chain its varied menu, pub grub that is ideal if the food court in TC too busy. Been handful of times, prompt service and whilst kitchen staff alway polite those behind the bar are average and seem to lack social skills... But then thats what I expect. Would go again, but not for a special occasion!!

They eventually sat us in the restaurant on two different tables. 2 meals were not brought out as the waiter 'forgot' to write them down. One meal was brought that we hadn't even ordered and... More

We ate at this restaurant/pub whilst staying at the attached Premier Inn with friends and our children. Service was very quick considering it was a Friday evening. Food was good for the price, and the menu had plenty of choice.

After reading the reviews wasn't sure if I would like it. Thankfully we had a good experience. The service was friendly, the food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Would definitely go again.
