We have visited twice now and have had the same view - where are the waiting staff? We turned up at 1pm on a Saturday and it was fairly busy but we got a table and ordered food and drinks in the normal way. The problems began there, there were just 3 forks in the cutlery bowl (we needed 4)... read more

Me and my grandad like to go out for lunch together and so we thought, why not try the treacle mine? First thing we saw as we got in was dirty tables (glasses and plates were still on the table) and took around 10 mins after we sat down for the woman to clear it. The lady serving at the... More

We took my parents here, just for coffee and a cake. Very busy place on a Saturday afternoon, so it really can't be as bad as some of the reviews make it sound. Coffee is from a machine and is acceptable although could have been hotter to be honest. The food However i have to say was fine. We saw... More

Visited recently for the Christmas meal with my local Fibromyalgia support group. The staff were very accommodating of our group and their needs which included wheelchair, walking frame, and pushchair and all our dietary needs. The food was delicious, I had the steak and it was cooked to perfection. The portions were great and the atmosphere good. Excellent value at... More

Part of the Sizzler chain. We went in a party of eight. Not booked. It was very busy but the very helpfull manger to sort us out with a table all together. The food and drinks are very reasonably priced. Most meals under a tenner. Being busy meant a bit of a wait for drink service at the bar but... More

Having visited this place over 30 times in the last two years it's sad to say that this was the last. I've never much like the first person to an empty table arrangement when busy but we always seemed to have to wait a long time for our food... But previously it has been reasonable with the food taste and... More

Had to wait nearly 50mins after ordering. When the meal arrived foundveg under cooked and cold. Chicken, potatoes and turnip had been deep fried. This was denied by the barman. Attempted to eat the dinner (why??) But was defeated by a very hard lump of chicken breast. On paying, was not asked if the meal had been OK. I explained... More
