Went here for a spot of light lunch with my husband and we both ordered the roast chicken salad with sundried tomato and roasted peppers. We sat outside and every thing was fine until I was three quarters way through my salad and I was just about to help myself to another bite of sundried tomato when I saw a... More

Really bad food. Horrible taste! Never again! The chips were all soaked up with oil. Lasagne was bad, wedges fries were disgusting!

Looks can be deceiving. It was one of those Sunday's where you just want to relax with a cake and coffee. However this was not the case. We were seated by a very abrupt gentleman who nearly hit me in the head with the menu. We were then ignored for 15 to 20 minutes before someone came to take our... More

Me and my family have been to the courtyard plenty of times and the last two times the service has been unbelievably bad. We visited in April and there were no other customers in the seating area outside yet not one of the waitresses came out to serve us. My husband then went inside to get menus and we waited... More

Stopped in for lunch. The place was busy but seemed to be a nice flow. We were seated straight away but that's when the service ended! 15 minutes to take our order. There wasn't even knifes & forks on the table. Only half the order came out, yet we both ordered the same thing. I can't fault the food it... More
