Such a hit and miss service

Right firstly my usual is chicken strips and chips. With salad and some gazebo sauce. Their beef strips are sometimes good too. The problem here is actually the service. After the revamp things have actually got worse. You queue to order and then have to queue again for collection. They really need... read more

I stuck to my favourite T Bone it was cooked well, their signature dish and can't complain although they have few new items I couldn't resist. My mrs tried the 8oz Gourmet and had... More

I previously rated 5 out of 5. It's a shame how a rude member of staff can change perceptions. Predicted time was 50mins than 90mins later still no food. However there was no remorse or empathy! Very poor service.

I am a steak lover, and I have to say this is the only place I have come across that do the best tasting T-bone steak, chips with Gazebo Sauce cooked to the perfection of an African recipe. Don't bother with the other reviewers regarding the food, never had a problem with waiting as steak takes time to cook anyway,... More

I ordered a Lamb burger meal with all sauces and mentioned to the staff that when I previously ordered the meal the chips were cold, and the burger tasted like it was cooked the day before! The staff member said he will make sure the food will be cooked fresh. When i... More
