We go to breakers once a month, and although it is pricey with the amount of kids we take there, they enjoy it. the food is delicious, though I would recommend that if you order desserts then get it delivered with the meal otherwise youll be there for ages, not that the kids will mind

I ate breakfast and one dinner here while staying in the Grand Hotel to which this is attached. The free continental breakfast was basic but adequate, but the restaurant menu was all you need, with good variety and good value.

Meals may not be presented overly well but they certainly taste good. Large servings and a great selection. Also daily specials. Service can be a little slow on occasion, however, the food has always been excellent.

The owner who I fronted because I was so annoyed at spending money in his crappy (lets not call it a restaurant) place is absolutely useless. Even the staff are ashamed of the muck they serve up. Warm beer, lumpy meals, and when i was talking to the owner another guy turned up and tried to intimidate me after I... More

Very basic meals, Most of it I would say is predone frozen and reheated. Not value for money, we normally do the clubs which are bar better. Not going back in a hurry. None of us thought they were big meals.
