Held a baby shower here

We decided to hold a work colleague baby shower here on a Sunday as there's 50% off. The food was amazing and big portions, the only down side was we had to pre order as it was a group of 19 but we decided to order loads of sharer dish which I can't recommend enough. There was a problem with... read more

We visited on a busy sunday afternoon in a party of 7. After reading some reviews on here I was sceptical about what itnwas going to be like. It was lovely...I dont know where the other reviewers were on about as this was great. Service was excellent and even had a laugh and joke with our young kids. We had... More

After looking at their website & reading they have a Ladies Night every Thursday from 6pm with a 2 course meal & cocktail for £9.95, me & a friend decided to give it a go. We arrived at 7pm & even though it wasn't too busy it took 15 minutes for us to be served at the bar. We then... More

Been here quite a few times on a Sunday. Despite the service, we kept trying to come back because we really enjoyed the food and with 50% off it's an absolute bargain. However, enough is enough and you will definitely not be seeing us anymore. The staff are constantly rude and inattentive, after so many months they still haven't learned... More

This is the last time I go here, service was poor, repeat requests for items, and no drinks or deserts offered after main meal came down. Majority of us were students but we're told 1, our uni id shouldn't.be accepted. And 2, not everyone got the discount to which we were told nothing could be done about it. Obviously there... More

Came for dinner and drinks with friends, drinks were all goof pricey as expected but the food took forever to come with one persons meal being finished before the other 2 received ours. Staff very friendly and apologetic but when food came it was the greasiest dripping wet with oil falafel burger I've ever seen, it was inedible. Very few... More

Had lunch here fri 8th may. Food not bad but a tad overpriced. The problem is kids running around the place shouting and squealing with their mothers looking on adoringly. Point being at around £30 for 2 with drinks we like a little bit of peace and quiet which you will not get here

A very friendly welcome but then it is downhill. Service was slow and uninterested. Haloumi cheese salad starter was fine but then the main courses of pizza and past were bland and stodgy. Not at all worth the cost.

Popped in today for a quick lunch with my boyfriend, waitress was miserable and made us feel like we were an inconvenience. Long wait for food and when it arrived it wasn't particularly hot, tasted ok but nothing special. We had to leave 10 mins after our food was brought to the table as our car parking had run out....

I had stopped eating here as on previous visits the service had been poor. I decided to give it another try after meeting some friends here at the weekend. Unfortunately the service was still poor. There was no shortage of available staff, but many of them appeared to be doing anything but helping customers. One of them was even joking... More
