Slow service

My daughter and myself ate at this restaurant on a Friday evening and the food and service was really good. We therefore recommended that we go again on the Sunday night with a number of other guests. Admittedly we had not booked and in total there were 7 of us. We ordered our food and... read more

My colleagues and I were at a conference at the Olympia and fancied a quick bite to eat. The place looked good so we thought we'd try it out. I wish we hadn't. The potted shrimp looked pathetic in an oversized kilner jar 1/3rd full. A salad that should have come with melba toast came with burnt focaccia. Chips were... More

We used to go here stacks and it used to be great. It's annoyingly full on football nights (avoid). The food is quite nice and they tend to have a good range of beers. The only real issue I have with it is that it's a bit grubby and the toilets stink. No really - STINK.

Myself and some friends visited here a little while ago for food and drinks. While the food was good and if solely judging on that, I would return. However a number of staff were inexcusably rude, describing members of my party as "dogs sat in the corner" to the manager when we ordered , and when I got upset at... More

I can only comment on their breakfast: it's terrible! I've had it quiet a number of years and the chef must be from France, that terrible the breakfast is.Why did I go back? Tradition. In this case: a bad habit from some other people. Last years discussion was about the tea, or, should I say: the coffee; that was the... More

Popped in here for some food midweek and early evening, at the time most of those inside were actually outside smoking but hey that's their choice. Inside is done out a bit like a casual diner with long wooden benches and tables in the back area where you can watch food being cooked. The theme is American road food and... More

Had lunch as was going to Olympia just over the road. Ordered fish and chips which came reasonably fast considering it was a Saturday lunch time full of football fans watching the match on the huge screens (doesn't appeal to me) but if you want good food then this is fine.

I went here with a few friends for some drinks, and ended up getting some food off the menu as it sounded quite appetising. We had an american-style hotdog, mac and cheese and burgers - all decent and not too pricey. However, the one down side was the arrogant female behind the bar, I don't know if she was having...

This place has had some unhinged reviews so wasn't expecting a lot but I was pleasantly surprised, my food was hot tasty and reasonably priced, ticked all the boxes in my book for a good lunch, lovely cold pint too!
