Pleasant

Compared to other local eateries, a reasonable meal. Was worth the money but only due to the fact we had a 2 4 1 deal. A real disappointment as we have told them twice before is the way they serve their condiments, like a cheap cafe. Sauces in packets not in dishes. Also, one of us had a fruit... read more

We visited at about 6.30pm on Saturday and hadn't pre-contract but we're seated and served quickly - the restaurant seemed quiet. I was their with my young daughter (3yrs) and she was given a nice colouring/sticker book. We were sat in an area close to another couple and after we had ordered a large group arrived who were there for... More

American diners experience, great fun. Food traditional with an American twist, decor was straight out of the godfather - great talking points

I came here a week ago and will not be returning anytime soon. When we arrived we noticed that there was 2 table very close to us with about 6 people (they hadn't arrived just yet) but they had the rest of the restaurant and they chose to cramp us all up?! When we ordered our food we waited 25... More

We were very late making a reservation for valentines night, but luckily they could seat us at 9pm and the menu was still fully available. It was still busy but the waiting staff were helpful and friendly. Food came out quickly and were huge portions, enchiladas and fajitas both hit the spot. There wasn't much room for dessert but we...

Everyone says it's amazing. Great atmosphere. Superb food. Really vibrant. Sorry I couldn't find it. Yes looks amazing outside but when got in the food was basic American you find in pubs with no thought of making it exciting. Very expensive for the same you'd get from a Weatherspoons pub basically. Staff were great but it was very small and... More

Went here for a double birthday celebration. Service was rubbish, couldn't understand or hear the waiter and were seated near a party of 20 where we couldn't have a conversation or hear ourselves think. As for the food the potato wedges were partly burnt, burgers overcooked, chicken rubbery and vegetables watery and mushy. When we spoke to the manager he... More

Visted Fatsos as a last minute decision. Was a celebration for our kids getting really good grades in their report. Arrived and sat quickly, drinks orders taken and delivered along with our food order very quickly. Good start but it went downhill from there. Steak in the Philly Cheese steak sandwich was cold, the baguette was a cheap Tesco style... More
