We have been here 3 times now, first time was a Saturday evening and the food and service was great. 2nd time was last Sunday, went for afternoon lunch, had the waiter who may be Italian or another language, his service was poor and came across arrogant and not bothered, this was a special occasion and some of us felt...

Visited yesterday for lunch,first visit & I must admit was impressed by the atmosphere,a very friendly bartender was very helpful & the bar meal menu was more than adequate.It states on the menu that there may be a wait at busy times but this was not excessive & the food was plentiful & hot.Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

We've been calling in here for meals over the last 3 years and the place is unfortunately going downhill. It smells bad and needs a good overhaul and in-depth cleaning. The staff were average two years ago but are now not very friendly at all. The range of the menu is as good as ever but the quality of the... More

We used to come here often, but lately the place is not the same. The food is hit and miss. The old lady with the short blond hair just makes the customers feel like an inconvenience, just wants to rush you to order as fast and possible and has a slight flip attitude. Most of the other staff are really... More

Visited here on Saturday 5th, although the whole place was quiet the service was slow. Food was disappointing and didn't taste fresh, which is not surprising at the vast menu. I felt like I was 'bothering' the staff when I disturbed their 'chatting' to order drinks. With regards to the atmosphere, I felt the place was quite dirty and grimy... More

Had a Sunday lunch not bad but with a lot of better places near by they would have to do better. Service was friendly but slow and felt like you had to pester for anything you needed. Busy Sunday may have been the reason for this but feel they could do better
