I went here with family a couple of weeks ago. I asked the waitress if the fish they were serving was boneless. She said yes. When it arrived, it was loaded with bones. The vegetables were clearly frozen from a No-Name bag. I refused it and asked for it to be taken away. I ate none of it. I ordered... More

There were 15 of us Red Hatters and 3/4's had the liver. It was melt in your mouth. All the rest had various things, chicken, fish and chips and there were no complaints. The service was great and we'd definitely go again. We had a wonderful time.
