After driving past this place many times, we decided to try it out for breakfast one Saturday morning. We were pleasantly surprised, not only by the quality of the food, but the wonderful down to earth service that was given to us. It's certainly going to be our first choice when we are next in the area

Popped in for lunch, as always it was delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive - but not too attentive. Keith was our waiter and he struck the right balance of being there when we may need him and leaving us alone. Good job Keith! Must remember to order less next time, the portions are very generous.

I think this Obe is better than the nearby tgi and francie and bunny's. Food is nicer and atmosphere feels bit less chain like. Also a bit less rushed. Staff very friendly. Good range of drinks, plenty of parking.

This place serves nice food, and the service was great. But I'm rating this 4 out of 5 on this occasion as they don't have Soya milk, therefore not catering for those with a dairy / lactose intolerance... Plus They didn't have honey? But apart from that.... Would Come again!

First visit to this franchise and such a shame, decor design was really good and a good greeting by staff. Placed order for drinks & starters which was slow. Main course was slow to follow but was asked a million times if we wanted another drink which I thought was expensive. Server decided to drop my Son's Burger it nearly... More
