Fantastic venue, we went with some friends, but would be a great place for a birthday party. Venue is clean, quite large. polite staff. The food is very good. Something for everyone's pallet. Menue is extensive. Starter are great, tip don't fill yourself up on the starter, there are plenty of mains to try. Well worth a visit £19.95 on... More

We used to use this resturant quite often, but since they have moved to new premises the food standard is not so good, food taste a bit salty and sometime too greasy. We was wondering if they have changed chef

I think that this restaurant has become a victim of thier own success. I first went here a year ago and it was superb, but recently I think that the standard has slipped low enough that i would now struggle to justify the price compared to other restaurants in the area. The format is, as much as you can eat... More

we haven't been here for a while although have been many times in the past. The restaurant is so bleak since they moved and feels very stark and clinical. As we went in you are greeted by a bar full of dirty glasses but we sat straight away. Lisa, the manager, was so rude to my partner it was unbelievable,... More

A busy Saturday night, so service was a little slow, but very friendly. Good sized portions, which were hot and fresh. Good value for money. An enjoyable evening with great friends

Have been to this restaurant a few times now and the food is still great. We found the service to be fast and the staff friendly and attentive. Our drinks order was taken as soon as we sat down, and the food followed soon afterwards. Could not fault it and will be back again.

Booked a table for 1st December for our daughters 18th with family. There was no service with a smile or any attempt to make you feel welcome and enjoy our celebration. We had booked for 6 o'clock and the restaurant was not particulary busy. Our drinks ordered was taken quickly, we then looked at menu's to choose our food. Waitress... More
