Firstly the staff (claire) were really good, welcoming and went out of their way to help and make you feel at home. Sadly tho the breakfast wasnt great - i was one of 7 who didnt love it. Especially at the price. Much better value for money at wetherspoons.

We visit here quite regularly and have never had a bad meal. The staff are friendly and efficient and we have never had to wait very long for our meal. The only downside for me is that the seating can feel a little cramped together and I do not think there is a big selection of vegetarian pasta dishes on... More

This was a busy restaurant! We managed to get a table and were bought our food in reasonable time considering how many were there. The wait staff were very helpful and polite. The food was delicious and we paid reasonably for it. It is obviously popular as there were queues of people the whole time we were there!

We hadn't booked so just walked in and hoped we could get a table. The hostess explained that they were a chef down and there would be a 40 minute wait, so we got a drink at the bar and were brought some menus. This turned out to only be 20 mins at which point we were ready to order... More

First time to this restaurant and pleasantly surprised.The atmosphere was lively and the waitress cheerful, well informed and considerate...it was my daughter's birthday and she was presented with a mocktail...a nice touch. Food was good value and well presented. Overall a very positive experience for one who is generally unimpressed by chain restaurants.

Had a lovely Italian meal, The food and the service was very good. Eat early to avoid large groups of people who can be rather loud and noisy, And that,s only the sober ones lol. Mid weak is your best bet. But to be honest I had no reason to complain about other diners. The smaller the amount of people... More
