We have come here 5 times in a row recently. Every Saturday. Food quality, service and value has stayed the same. VERY GOOD. This is now our favourite place to eat and we hardly go anywhere else. They offer Mexican food, frozen cocktails, normal cocktails, amazing deserts and lovely starters. However you can just have a burger if you don't... More

It was slightly over priced and understaffed with not great toilets but the food was great! We had starters & a main and based on this I will be visiting again!

Took my boyfriend here for a meal the other day and it was absolutely lovely. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was speedy and to a top standard. The cocktails were also delicious. Lovely meal and would highly recommend

Very friendly service, the chilli chicken I had really hit the mark. The ambient music was in the style - I'll be returning.

Friend & I wanted to try somewhere new for breakfast as the past few places we have tried have been disappointing. It was quiet compared to the restaurant next door but we liked that & it was still early, about 9.45am. Friend & I both opted for the vegetarian sizzler (fried eggs for me, scrambled eggs for friend), toast, tea... More

We have been here before and decided to come back for a family celebration meal. On arrival our table was ready for us and our drinks order was quickly taken. Then everything slowed down significantly and it took an age to complete the meal and eventually pay the bill (our waitress was excellent but she had too many tables to... More

Obviously a bad evening for staff, no atmosphere , staff looked like they had the hump with each other, food very mediocre , I shared a rib meal with my husband, the ribs were dry and tasteless , corn on cob cold and full of water when you bit into it. Our meals sat on the pass with at least... More

After a hot afternoon doing a show in Southend, we needed somewhere quick and easy to go for a meal for a mixed group of people ranging from an autistic 12 year old to me, the grumpy nearly 50 year old. Couldn't face the stark ordinariness of Pizza Hut or the faux 50's glitz of Frankie and Bennie's, so off... More
