Enjoyable meal, good food

Good food. Not outstanding, but good. The service was fine. Prices middling. We had the platter starter between five - it was plenty and very nice. For main, I had a steak dish with a sauce and wedges. It was good, a little oily on the plate, but tasty enough. Shared a sweet with my wife. The... read more

Been here before but forgot to review it, I wasn't a fan the first time I went I got the stack of ribs and they weren't the best at all! There were hardly any meat on and they were really soggy and not nice to eat at all, however I went back with a group of friends a couple months... More

Food was good but felt rushed all the way through. Timing are tight between sittings and when you're trying to organise 18 people it was a major hassle. It was my nieces 18th birthday and when they brought the cake out I asked the waitress to wait while I got everyone from outside, I wasn't gone 20 seconds and they... More

Good quality food well priced. It's not fine dining, but it's great for families - proper tasty, meaty burgers, finger-licking BBQ and good pizzas. Child friendly, pleasant service, and top early bird deals and cocktails.

Having been before when this place went under a different name, I wasn't disappointed. Serving a mixture of Italian, Mexican and American-style food, there's plenty of choice for everyone. I was with two friends who were going to share a Starter platter, whilst I was going to choose my own starter. However, the waitress advised us that there's enough food... More

Four couples, wanting eat, can prove difficult, one of the group pre-booked this place. The décor is pirate themed and when we walked in it was quite busy (1830 hrs) with groups and families. We were seated in a booth, which we liked. Staff were very chirpy and really positive, which made for a good atmosphere. One of our group,... More

Calico Jack's is a brilliant restaurant, reflected by the innovative decor which corresponds to the pirate theme. I went there for my sister's birthday with 12 children and my parents and the staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to help (even if it meant helping my sister and her friends to sharpen the pencils when the...

Booked a table for a group of friends. Great service, staff were friendly. It was just before Christmas so the restaurant was packed. Extensive menu, there is definitely something for everyone. Our order was taken quickly and even though it was really busy, it didn't take too long for the food to come out. But, two of the four meals... More
