Not bad, the kids always pick the best meals I think and they are very affordable. I had the Caesar chicken wrap with chips and salad. It wasn’t bad. I must say the chips definitely fill you up. Overall I believe this place is a good option based on affordability.

Hogs Breath is one of our favourites. We loved the good and there are lots of things to see around the restaurant. The only negative is the wait time for the meals, especially with hungry children.

I have read previous reports on this restaurant about other members' experiences but I found my steak to be fantastic ... very tasty & well cooked. My wife had the salmon and she had the... More
