We took my mum here for a surprise birthday lunch. The service was quite slow considering there weren't that many tables occupied and the menu was limited as it was a Sunday. There was also a change to the menu which we weren't told until we came to order and the waitress seemed quite annoyed... read more

Friendly service with acceptable food -at least I did not have to cook that day- do not think I will rush back there .A few of us had cod and chips-had better from a fish and chip shop at a much reduced price. Good car park,

The family really enjoyed our evening to the Gradon. We arrived for 6pm and was able to enjoy the early bird menu which offers fantastic value. All food was freshly cooked and arrived in a timely manner. Looking forward to trying the Sunday lunch.

Once again, lovely food let down by very poor service! Had to wait 25 minutes to have a menu then another 25 minutes to order. Nothing from any service staff why it took so long!! If they get the service right it could be lovely. But once again, hopeless!!
