Despite a great meal and good fun with friends I regretfully must say that the customer service was rather bad and they were very rude when they reacted badly to charging 20 or so of us an added £10 on to what there own menu charged us... and when they were questioned about the price they claimed "misprint"... came to...

I was at the resturant for dinner on Saturday night and from the start it was great, great selection for the vegetarians in our group and for the meat eaters they enjoyed the burgers. It was very busy on Saturday night but that isn't reflect on the service, as always a great night!

Claire Breen took on board all our requirements for table layout, decoration and colour scheme, we also had several guests with specific dietary requirements. To say it all went off superbly seems faint praise for the Ava. The room was great, the food cooked by Arun and his team amazing ,... More

Friendly, attentive staff. Can't flaw the service or food. I ordered the poached pear and blue cheese salad as a main, and apple crumble for dessert. Would... More

I visited last night and was met by a delightful young lady. Asked if I had a booking? I declined and she said "no problem", showed me to a table, took our drinks order and left menus. As a steak fanatic, I decided to try the burger with all the extras. Waohhhh! The plate came piled high and am glad... More

Ava....i love you and the staff but please please please loose the Asda pepper mill. Nothing wrong with Asda at all but I really don't want to see it in a restaurant. Makes me wonder what else is from there :(.
