In the pictures online, the food looked good, but the fish and chips was terrible. The batter although crisp, was really thick and smelly. How can you enjoy a meal when you can actually taste and smell the oil! My husband's meal of rice and slow cooked meat was also passe. When we told the staff about the oil smell,... More

Feel like a good steak...how is it a steak house can not get their steaks cooked right. Ordered two medium rare, what arrives one more rare and one more medium. So disappointing, think I need to avoid in future.

I had been recommended the duck by friends/family and the service was disjointed to say the least. I walked in and asked for a pint of carling and asked if I just sit at a table and come and order when I was ready. I then noticed that there was a stand so assumed that wasn't the case, I walked...

The front entrance looks a bit shabby - but once inside the décor improves. There were 7 of us and we were shown a table straight away. My cousin (who flew in from Vancouver early this morning) requested a pint of Guiness! "Sorry - we don't have any". OK "A glass of Murphys or Mild?" the same reply. We couldn't... More

Been here quite a few times and the service and food really depends on when you go. The pâté is fab, I'm assuming that it's good because it has to be pre prepared. My friend ordered a pie that came out freezing in the middle. I usually have the steak which is good. The staff are friendly and polite. The... More

We went there twice and on each occasion were met and served by friendly staff. Food was good on both occasions although on a Sunday night several dishes were no longer available. The friendliness of the staff was a real contrast to the nearby ASK & TGIF and the main reason we went there for a second time.

Rather than dance around the issues I'd rather get straight to the point. My boyfriend ordered rib eye with extra onion rings I ordered the chilli .... The steak arrived about 5 mins before my meal..no apology or explanation - poor service! Then there was the food which looked so promising on the glossy expensive menu... 1.chips where over cooked...
