Hit and miss

Like a lot of sizzling pubs it is a bit hit and miss. Have visited many times as it is local to us, and the service is normally very good, just let down on occasions if they are busy. The big let down is their in house customer service where (like other sizzlings we have visited) staff do not... read more

Firstly, I live local to the Treacle and eaten there quite a few times but it may be time to move on as cheap food doesn't compensate for low standards, long waits and bad customer service. Had to pay for the staffs mistakes ...we were charged £6.98 for a £3.98 meal and they wouldn't change it. The guy made 4... More

One of the best full English breakfast I've had. The Sizzling was breakfast with piping hot potatoes and onions behind the scrumptious sausages and eggs was excellent. Not good for your cholesterol, but a great breakfast once in a while. Fantastic value for money as well: I paid about £9 for two breakfasts and two coffees.

Best breakfast I have had in a long time. Staff were lovely and friendly. Help yourself to as much coffee as you want for £1.00 extra.

There were eight of us celebrating three birthdays. We were advised to order together, so that our meals would come out at the same time. Sound advice. Dishes I recall ordered: Lemon peri-peri chicken & pepper skewers, beef lasagne, blackened Pacific salmon, chicken fajitas (mine). Reasonable prices. All enjoyed their food. Friendly staff. Afterwards, we continued with our raucous evening...... More
