Very enjoyable

We came here with kids after watching a film. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. Food was actually a lot better than I expected and I really enjoyed it. The kids really loved it too. I would come back. Apparently the breakfast is very good.... Maybe I'll try it one day

Visited on Saturday afternoon, the restaurant was very quiet. We were sat near the outside doors and the waiter kept going outside leaving the doors wide open which made us very cold and blew napkins and menus on the floor. We moved to a different table which was fine. The food was very good and very hot. The service was... More

this is what it is, the food is ok, it's one step up from a greasy spoon but not as good value. The staff are friendly but not so efficient.

As a treat I took a friend's daughter to breakfast, in the past this place hasn't been too bad but I was disappointed with today's experience. It was busy so only to be expected service would be a bit slower however food was building up on the counter waiting to go out. Hence the food not being as warm as... More

Booked for a party of 10 on a Sunday evening. Restuarant was busy when we arrived at six, but soon emptied out. Found the different menu options a bit confusing. Food service seemed quite slow. Food was good, heard no complaints from anyone. Music was pleasant but a bit loud. Certainly NOT the place for a quiet chat!

We felt like pain cos we needed a booth (my son is in a wheelchair ànd is easier for him to sit in there) but they did get a table ready for us. I had pasta which was described as a whole chicken breast... More

Come here a lot for lunch and the food is always nice and tasty. Now I wouldn't say it's great food but they have good lunch deals and normally pretty quick. This is more of a fast food restaurant (a step up from mcdonalds etc) but still nice
