Run of the Mill

The experience was very much as you would expect - neither good or bad, but dependable. Pleasant staff!

Great for a family meal as they have both outdoor and indoor play areas. Food was great but the service was a little slow, however it was a Sunday early evening so it was quite busy. Please be advised that the indoor play area insists that children wear socks, even 2 year olds! But they only have one size which... More

Wont be returning here until big improvements are made! We sat at a dirty table (as all were dirty and no one was clearing them, it wasn't even busy!) When we had decided what we wanted we placed the order to be told that what i wanted and half of what my hubby wanted wasn't available, so we sat down... More

I'm sorry but I can't recommend this place. It was once a very decent pub called 'The Thorns', and was run by a family who knew the business. They retired and the place was sold and became 'The Game Bird', and now 'The Air Balloon', I guess the name may have some connection with Gatwick Airport, a mile or so... More

I visited on a Tuesday night and found it quite busy but there was hardly any staff, There only seemed to be a barman, 2 girls waiting on and the chef and they seemed to be rushed off their feet. Despite this they were friendly and the service was good. The food was delicious and hot when it arrived. The... More

The only good thing about this place is the starters, they are well presented and good-ish quality. And the manager is very nice and talkative. The other staff could do with customer service training, very rude, ignoring customers and uninterested. Main courses are absolutely terrible, salad is anything but fresh, chicken is ALWAYS dry, rubbish quality food. Avoid. Place itself... More

Food absolutely awful all frozen including very cheap roast potatoes and cheap veg . Nachos looked like they had just been thrown on the plate ... desserts crumble was fruit puree... More
