Nice atmosphere for Family Sunday lunch. Food was good and hot, service although quick could have been a little more attentive we didn't get asked if we would have liked more drinks-we did want more but didn't bother in the end, the lady who served us could have done with being a bit more cheerful.

Just got back from the restraunt myself and I was shocked at the service me and my friends received. Me and my boyfriend met are friends and when we arrived they had already been given menus and had drinks etc. We sat down and was not seen to for at least 10 minutes, then our drinks took around 15 minutes...

Me and partner went here for the first time after getting bad recommendations. But we was not displeased at all. The food was lovely and couldn't fault at all. The chicken is so succulent and tasty! The only down side is the price as we had a starter to share a tomato garlic bread a main each and a chocolate... More

Well the food was delicious, the staff was extremely helpful, the restaurant was extremely busy as it would be for a Saturday evening. I have given the atmosphere a 4, in relation to a group of drunk fools! They spoke to staff like dirt, staff was extreamly helpful and tried their hardest to help them, so well done to all... More

8 of us visited to celebrate a family Birthday service was good and our waiter was great, we all ordered something different and none of us disappointed, good portion sizes nice and Hot and reasonably priced . Every one sang Happy Birthday and they bought a dessert out with candles on which was a lovely gesture. Will definitely visit again... More

We arrived in a party of 9, we believe that 10 and above incur an automatic service charge (we did not do this on purpose). We asked to have a separate bill for My husband and daughter and myself and this was a big deal and was not liked. I’m sorry but in large groups we always do this so... More

We have been coming here for years and it seems to be going downhill. If they are very busy be prepared to wait for a table up to 45mins (when they say 30mins and no apology). They also have piles of dirty glasses piled up because they cannot keep on top of them so they put your drink in another... More

I ordered the tomato garlic bread to start and it looked like a proper home made pizza garlic bread, delicious! Main was the new chicken pitta with a Louisiana sauce, chips, corn... More
