My wife and I went to the restaurant at 1230 hrs on a Saturday and when we entered into the foyer we thought that it had closed down - it was so quiet and no staff to be seen. After a few minutes we were greeted by who could have been the manager and directed to the dining room and... read more

I would have loved to give this place a better review as we were overwhelmed upon arriving to an amazing ambience, great decor and sat down to what we hoped would be an overall great meal. Drinks were served quickly and our orders taken and then a looooonnnggg wait! Despite a number of staff passing and looking over at our... More

We don't live far away and pop up maybe once a month for a Saturday night or Sunday night supper. Tonight I ordered the special Thai red chicken, there were only 2 small pieces of chicken both very chewy and the curry itself just tasted like cream. Service was very slow and twice we felt forgotten about. It's such a... More

The place looks great with its new blue paint and stripped wood and the food is good value and plentiful. The starter nacho dish was HUGE and deliciously spicy. We had steaks cooked just as we wanted them - no complaints at all. Service was friendly and the right speed. One small gripe about the 1960s/70s rock music 'background' music.... More

Been here 3 times over the last 6 months with an obvious change in chefs. First meal was very bad and undercooked and although the restaurant was empty we were served very slowly. Seen a few changes to the menu with the new one being fab. Since then both service, food and atmosphere have changed for the better. Loving the... More

Last night I took my mum and dad down to our local for supper. This was our time there since the big refurbishment and we were absolutely amazed with the new look, the rustic beach theme really suits it and really makes the most of its location along with the new stylish comfy seats and log burning stove gives a...

Used to go here 10-15 years ago. Was very very dated and food went down hill, went for a birthday meal out, was apprehensive as I remembered what it used to be like, but heard it had been refurbished. Walked in and was very surprised and taken aback, beautifully decorated. Lovely modern rustic theme, decorated to a high standard, waitress... More
