I have eaten here twice in the last couple of months, once with my sister who is a vegetarian and once with my husband and have had a great experience on both occasions. The set lunch menu is great value, two courses for £10 and there were plenty of choices for my veggie sister. Both my sister and I were... More

Yesterday we were eating in this restaurant. We had an early bird menu and we chose vegetables broth with delicious, I think pearl barley as a starter and as a main battered fish, me with fries, my girlfriend with champ and both were so delicious. Great food, great service, we can highly recommend this place!!

Had dinner here recently. Food ok although, the chilli and garlic prawns could have done with some chilli, none to be found!!. Service is very quick and attentive. I do however, have to mention the ladies toilets. The Vent Axia units couldn't possibly be working as a vent, as they are totally blocked with thick dust, as are the tops... More

This has to be good value for money e.g. Starter and Main Course for £10. The meals are standard pub grub but I have to say the 3 meals we had were piping hot as if they were just cooked. Would definitely recommend this for a Restaurant for a casual lunch.

Had the burger, not that good. I think I picked the wrong thing to eat, everything else was fine but I think burgers are marketed as being something that should really well made but are just simply a meat patties that could come from anywhere. Starters, good, main poor to average and desserts good. The place itself is probably the... More

This is obviously a popular place to eat, especially with its early bird deal . The food was fairly standard pub grub but good portion sizes. A lot of it seems kind of the deep fried variety but what do you expect of a cheap set menu! Friendly and efficient staff and would be keen to try the main menu!

I had the misfortune to share a similar experience to previous reviews. Called in at 4.10pm on a Sat afternoon for a glass of wine while waiting for a train but was very rudely informed by the waiter that they had a full sitting booked for 5pm. Most if the tables were empty and it was all quite bizarre. I... More
