We visited here for lunch on bank holiday Monday. I ordered the chicken & bacon salad which was quite unusual. The bacon was very fatty and the chicken mix was very wet and quite sloppy. It tasted nice but not what I was expecting on top of salad leaves. My fiancé had the Mexican beef burger which looked quite impressive... More

we booked a lovely table in the restaurent area of the bridge, fabulously decorated throughout, the table was set very nicely. 5 adults and two children, were all well catered for. A special 3 course Morhers day menu at £14.99 each was amazing value. Choices were varied, food delicious, staff friendly and professional. A free gift of a small potted... More

This cafe was noisy, cold, uncomfortable and the food was very disappointing. A mistake was made with our order and when we complained we were treated as being a nuisance. shan't be going back I'm afraid

Took the family in for a late afternoon meal. My steak was nicely cooked and all the other meals were good too. The presentation was good though I think a steak should always be served with a steak knife and the wooden board as a plate is a lovely idea but if it's cracked you can't pour the sauce over...

Dashed in and booked a table during a snow storm. Helpful staff and cozy atmosphere. Food was great, probably not the pies we ordered but eaten and enjoyed. Great value for money in a top class environment.

Very pleasant meal, I went with my parents, wife and 2 year old. The staff were very accommodating and the food was very good. Really nice to see proper pies being served and not a puff pastry lid in sight. I'd recommend this eatery to most people, It was a relatively quiet Saturday lunch, i'd imagine that it might feel...
