Poor refurbishment and noisy

This isn't my type of restaurant, but visit on occasions for the benefit of others. For me, the idea of a restaurant in a prefabricated building on a retail park isn't very appealing, but previously the interior was quite reasonable. Now it seems more like a canteen, and possibly the lack of any... read more

Visited last night having been several times in the past and had a great experience. Who on earth decided on this horrendous refurb? It used to be classy but now looks like a motorway services and the chairs are the most uncomfortable I've ever sat in - like classroom chairs! Such a shame because the menu is good, the food...

Waited an hour and a half for food. Walked out without paying for our starters and drinks. With 5 kids in tow this was just too much. First visit and never going back. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!

Friendly welcome, good choice menu, all the food very nice as was the seating. Music not too loud. We actually had a great evening. We did have a 30% off voucher which meant we had a nice starter mezze, main and a drink each for £15. Not sure I would have been so enthusiastic at full price. Staff very friendly... More

Visited here on Friday dinner out with family. Couldn't fault the food really, was tasty. The girl looking after us was lovely but the service was very slow. Waited too long in between meals. Waited almost 20 mins for a drink and dessert. By this point we wished we hadn't ordered a dessert. This was the only downfall really.

Came here on Tuesday evening . Felt like there were too many long waits for our meals to come as it took around 30 minutes for our garlic bread to come and 40 minutes for our main. Also been newly refurbished however not as cosy and it feels more café like then the old decor.

We took good friends out for their anniversary meal, as a treat night and to spy out the newly refurbished restaurant, they have really freshened up the place and the service despite being full was spot on, looked after all night without feeling rushed.

staff just generally huffing and puffing, no service whatsoever , had to wait over 20 mins for just the drinks and then an hour for the mains. No staff available to ask for anything either. You were just dumped in a corner and forgotten about. Sitting looking over to the Asda is not the best view ever. Not to mention... More
