The restaurant is in a good location with easy parking. Inside the atmosphere was relaxing, with the staff very attentive and courteous. We had the lunchtime menu which was great value, 3 courses for just over a tenner each; also you got free coke refills. So if you're looking for a top fill up at a reasonable price, then you... More

Arrived and told table would take 15 minutes, taken to bar for a drink and had to wait 10 mins before being served. Thirty five minutes before being taken to table. Meantime a number of people came and left as they were kept waiting while tables were empty. Lots of people complaining about service. In my opinion not enough staff... More

In a bit of a rush to get to the cinema for date night. Told this to our waitress Katie and she got our drinks order straight away and made sure our food arrived quickly. The food was good and the service was excellent tonight :)

The service was poor. Waitresses never really seemed keen on helping us or taking our order. Food was bought to us after a very long time of waiting despite it being available to serve on the shelf. They were more attentive when we asked for the bill. Never going back. Worst experience ever.

Great place to go if you are wanting to eat before a football game at Portman Road. Or a film at cineworld. Safe menu to choose from, no surprises! Reasonably priced also. If it's a game day it does get busy.
