Rip-Off Of Yankee Traveller

This really is just a down market Yankee Traveller. The prices match but the quality is not the same and the atmosphere seems a bit plastic-y

I came here with my partner and my 3 year old & we had a lovely time. Portions were good and the value for money was excellent. The staff are excellent with young children and provided crayons, colouring book and a balloon which my son was extremely happy about

It took a bit of finding and caused some funny looks when we asked directions. A lot of locals had never heard of it (their loss) so perhaps they need to advertise more. The food was excellent and it was great to see my grandson clear his plate. We enjoyed it so much, we returned the next night and the... More

We came across Fatso's whilst looking for the now closed Italian restaurant. My Cheesy Nut Burger was delicious. Highly recommended to visiting vegetarians. The Diablo past was a very hot according to my spice loving son so his yummy Mexican Sunset Virgin cocktail hit the spot. The cookie skyscraper dessert was more than enough for two sweet toothed teens.

My other half had the bacon and cheese... More

Such a shame, we used to use this regularly for birthday celebrations amongst other meals, but now it looks dated, particularly with the analogue TVs stuck in a time warp. Portions have got smaller, prices have been hiked. To top it all our side order was brought late..and cold!

We forgot to hand in our loyalty card and it was 2 4 1 on combos. We were charged £30 instead of the £15 which was the 2 4 1 price. A really lovely waitress called Marie served us and not only was she polite all evening and very helpful. She also sorted out our refund. I would like to... More

On the burger menu it stated that all burgers come medium-well done unless you require different.... well I asked for medium-rare. However was told that they have to cook minimum medium - well done... Children's pizza (so glad we never paid for it) However we kept telling our daughter to eat it as she's had nothing all day... I checked... More

We were impressed with the menu online and went on returning from a trip into Norwich. We had no difficulty in obtaining a table as the place was quite empty. We ordered our food and drinks. These arrived promptly. Two of our party had beef burgers in various forms which were fine. However my Monterey Chicken and my friends Chicken... More
