got the £17 rock of ribs, they were tough and the bbc sauce not caramelised. Bruschetta was with soggy bread and not much tomato. Calzone was soggy.... Need I go on? Food disappointing. Good service staff though and kid friendly on the plus side.

Second time here in 2 weeks. I'm a sucker for punishment. Food is never worth the money. Calamari to start. Difficult to stuff that up. Spag bog main. Spag overcooked and bog from a can I suspect. Today 10/11/14 they have excelled in their crapness. The waitress clearly not interested and a total lack of management. The pass is full... More

Visited this evening. Food was ok, service was ok but the real problem was the prices. We've been going to F&B's around the UK for years, but tonight we were really shocked at the prices. It was virtually impossible to find a main dish under £10, and I struggled to find anything I really wanted (but that's just me I... More

Went today for a surprise party for one of our grandchildren who was 7 today 14/10/14. This place has been open some time so I'am surprised it's not in Trip advisor. It's the usual F& B restaurant fair, but as usual when there are 18 in one party it all come's down to service. And today they performed brilliantly, from... More

Popped into the Foss Island branch today for an early lunch (11.30am). Not many people were in there but the chef service was slow. Waitress seemed aware of this and did her best but the male chef seemed more interested in talking to the coffee guy who had just come on shift. When we received our food the chicken wraps... More
