My wife and I selected this restaurant in which to celebrate our 9th anniversary and I booked ahead, mentioning it was for our anniversary. The evening started well, as we announced our arrival we were greeted with 'Happy Anniversary'. Nice. That was also the high point of the evening, the rest swiftly slid downhill. Despite booking in advance, our table... More

Saturday night/group of 4. Called and booked Saturday afternoon before reading TA reviews. I was slightly concerned about some reviews but remained open minded. Warn greeting from bar staff and smiles from other staff in the vicinity. Took recommendation from our very polite and attentive waitress on a starter. (great choice) All four mains didn't disappoint either. (Burger, Ribs, two... More

We booked this for Christmas Day dinner. Upon arrival we were not greeted with the most friendliest manner. There were only two other tables there, management seemed very indifferent there was no meet and greet, didn't seem at all pleased to see us, not what you'd expect when you're just about to spend £400 on Christmas Day lunch. Upon checking... More
