Really bad food, really bad service We had to send chicken wings back as they were actually cold to touch as if they had literally just come out of the fridge. The fillet steak was also sent back as it was well past it's best and had turned gamey in taste. We never actually got some of the meal that... More

Love this place food is good and reasonably priced. Their milkshakes are really tasty and come in all different flavours my children love them. Finally can eat food with the family while children can watch films or have a good relaxing time o and the staff have excellent service.

I had the meatfeast (1/2 chicken, 1/2 rack of ribs and 5oz rump steak) the steak was perfectly cooked, the chicken was tender and moist and the meat just fell of the ribs. Will be going back there, hopefully... More

Venue is very loud and you practically have to shout to be heard over the racket, it seems the venue is targeting the TGI crowd and atmosphere, But on my most recent visit the food wasn't actually as good as the local alternatives, ice cream was nice tho! Lovely waitress, but I don't think I'd visit again as it lacks... More
