We ate as a couple early on a Sat evening soon after at 5pm - and they were open for business as advertised unlike neighboring outlets. Greeted by Proprietor although I later realised this was on one of his many fag and mobile phone breaks. On sight of a broken leg we were promised all possible assistance - sadly this... More

A group of 9 of us visited or a friends birthday at 7.30 on a Saturday. Promptly seated and drinks ordered. We all went straight to main..... A Greek platter was replaced by a Mexican one and then waited 15 mins for a replacement by which time most of us had finished. The birthday boys fajitas come with a side... More

It does what it says on the menu. Been here a few times, always accommodating and friendly. Potions good size, starters nice (had chicken wings)... Between us there was a steak burrito , double burger and a enchilada and everyone enjoyed it. Service was friendly and was on a busy night. Only downside was that for a blackcurrant and soda... More

I came here about a month ago and really enjoyed it. So decided to come back for round 2. I ordered something similar and asked for extra cheese, they were most accommodating. My drinks were constantly replenished which I like. Will be back again soon. Cant really understand all the negative reviews, maybe they should stick to McDonald's.

Went on the 17th May with my partner and our friends. From the beginning i was impressed that our table was ready (we had turned up half hour early and was just going to sit in the bar) so we sat down and every single waitor/waitress came to ask if we were ready to order, as we were waiting for...
