A real disappointment

We thought we would give this place a go and booked in advance for a family of 6 including our 1 year old son. Initially our hopes were high as we had heard good things. For starters we had some garlic bread and I tried the chicken wing chilli challenge. It was pretty hot and the wings were a... read more

After reading some of the reviews we were slightly apprehensive. But the food was brilliant. I have been here numerous times with friends and family, and the food is always great. Albeit the service isn't very good, but if you go knowing this then you will be ok. The service has increased in the past few month so it is... More

Horrendous place!, very pricey for what you get . Yes it looks cool inside but that's it!! food was burnt and I had the most tiny bit of lettuce in my burger. I ordered a mojito and when it came to me it was a power blue to my shock, I tasted it and it tasted like bleach apparently the... More

Called in for breakfast. Full English and Coffee for £4.95. Beat that locally. Super service, lovely people and great atmosphere. Go and try it, I'll be going back, perhaps next time we'll try the hotel too.

Decided to go here for breakfast with a friend of mine. We walked in and the restaurant was fairly busy but there were still a lot of tables free. We were waiting behind a couple to be seated, but not for long - the couple decided to walk out, and on their way out told us exactly why they were... More

Had to wait ten minutes to be seated despite there brings booths free . After being seated waited another ten minutes to... More

Decor really good and quirky including life size Elvis in the entrance, pretty authentic American diner from the 50s-60s with music from the same period, very clean and staff really helpful but the service was so slow even with it not even being half full. Second time I've been there and on both occasions disappointed with the food on this... More
