When a large table orders at least two drinks each why is it a big deal to get jugs of water to the table? The food could of been hotter as well. I didn't mind wait and staff were friendly. But water issue made things needlessly uncomfortable, you need to re look at your policies as that was just rude.

After a long day at work, my partner and I were looking forward to a dinner out. What was shocking to me is how long it took for staff to bring over a menu. After ordering and waiting at least 50 mins the steak I ordered was rear. Not only was the food terrible. The staff were even worse. After... More

Very average food. A lot of what I tasted, tasted like it was processed. Probably a good place if you have children

A friend planned a meal there recently. Food is average fare, what you'd expect from a Cobb and Co, no faulting the chef as obviously they've done their best with a menu that is probably set for them via head office, but prices are steep for what you're getting, other restaurants in town are cheaper but better, burgers are at...

II had roast pork meal followed by a caramel sundae. The caramel syrup seemed almost like it was watered down. If I'd shut my eyes and sampled the caramel, I would never have guessed what I was eating. Still, the main course was good, even if the crackling, sitting on top of a tall tower, was only thumb-naile size.

Thanks for your comments regarding the senior two course meal. I am glad you enjoyed your roast and we would have been happy to have given you additional crackle, so if you dine again with us feel free to ask for more. Sorry you didn't like your caramel topping, we would have been happy to replace if for you. Hope... More

We waited 30 mins for one starter, a shrimp cocktail that would have been ready and in the fridge then another another 25mins for the main courses (roasts) and to be honest they were not that good. They were very busy so wish they had told us that it would be a long wait on the way in and we... More
