We visited at a quiet lunch time on Bank Holiday Monday, The service from Natalie was outstanding. There were no complaints regarding the food. Probably far too much choice on the menu they should cut the... More

Visiting with family pre cinema. Fairly slow service took 40 minutes to receive starter (platter) and 1 hour 15 minutes to get main courses. Food is average at best, usual poorly cooked and nothing close to being fresh fair we seem to accept from such chains (why?). Definitely first and last time we will be visiting. To cap it all...

The staff were very accommodating and the food was cooked exactly the way i like it. The music and decor was very suited to the place. Will definitely go again :-)

The starter (sharing platter) was OK but I was so let down by the main. I ordered enchilada' s with no cheese. After I finally got it it came smothered in cheese. I sent it... More

When I visit here it's usually or lunch, much like franky and bennies next door it's pretty much just a step up from fast food. That being said good is always tasty and usually get good service
