Costly but worth every penny

Waited half an hour only to find our food order hadn't been put through, so had to leave. Only had drinks, although at least they gave us them for free since we went away hungry.

I ordered a salad with my macaroni and had to remind the waitress 3 times to get my salad, by the time I got it my macaroni was... More

The staff here always greet with a smile and are very friendly and helpful! The menu has a large selection to chose from and it all taste greats! I love the chicken calypso panini! The pancakes are also very yummy and the different flavoured milkshakes r fab! Great lunch time treat and suitable for families with young children.

Flipping heck went here for lunch, got the bacon stacker as obviously you have to have pancakes in the Pancake Place. The bacon was awful, it didn't even look like bacon, just parts of a pig that had been sledgehammered, and it was obviously microwaved because there was those white pools of fat that appear on it. Really nice when... More

Early Sunday morning visit, it was OK. The portions were large but I'd expect exceptional pancakes from somewhere called the pancake place. One side of all my pancakes were white, the butter I got served was rock hard and the

Sorry about that, our supplier for the Criss Cuts did take them off their product list much to our disappointment as well, - they are very popular! However the good news is that they will be back shortly and we have taken in Curly Fries as a short term substitute which are dusted with a similar mix of spices. Apart... More
