Blooming onion!

We also shared the Blooming Onion. Loved it. Always try to get it if here but it's not always available so... read more

We booked a table of 7 for a birthday celebration having been here before. WE WILL NOT BE RETURNING. The starters came ok but that was it. The main course took almost an hour to arrive. When it did the chips on 3 of the plates were stone cold and the child's food so overlooked she could not eat it.... More

Me and some girlfriends went for a hen party, nothing was too much trouble for the staff even though they were very busy the place was packed all night long. The meal was fantastic and so much to choose from on the menu you were spoilt for choice. Will have to go back again and again just to try what... More

Wonderful for a Sunday carvery or even a family function. The meals are a good consistent quality no matter when you go. Great service, especially Martin where nothing is too much trouble. Fabulous sea views too.

A group of us went for a night out. Good food , good service and a good night. After eating upstairs we went down stairs for a few drinks . All in all a well run establishment. Well done

Myself and my husband had a meal here on Valentines Night. Excellent steak, cooked to perfection. Free glass of fizz and a rose for the ladies. Very good service - can't wait to return.

Wouldn't shout about the food. Over priced for average food. Steak looked cheap & was grisly. Should change his butcher. Have cooked better myself. Had better from the chippy for my son. Kids are off. Thought we would try eating out this week.Won't be back.

This was my second visit in 2 months. Wasn't Impressed the first time but decided to give it benefit of doubt & try again! I arrived early for meal with friends & found it intimidating walking into the packed restaurant on my own, made worse by having to wait about 5 minutes before someone dealt with me & showed me...
