Same Old Story!

Food is good but be prepared to wait. Service is polite but achingly slow. Drinks order took at least 20mins for waiter to appear then a further 20mins to arrive. Food a further hour. I am a semi regular customer as food and atmosphere good......if only they'd hire a few more staff.

When the restaurant first opened it was a pleasure to visit with good food, good service and a lovely atmosphere. Sadly, it seems to have lost it's way in recent months, the service has fallen away and the food well......on the last occasion we called we were served a very ordinary and cold meal so much so we complained as...

We were sat for about 20 minutes before being asked if we wanted drinks, we ordered drinks & main meals (no starters) and we waited 2 hours to get our meals. When the food arrived we had burnt nann bread and Luke warm dried up food. We asked... More

We went to this restaurant on the 13th Feb, after reading the reviews I was expecting the worst, How wrong was I. We were greeted in a friendly and professional manner and shown to our prebooked table. Within minutes we were presented menu's and our drinks order was taken. Ordered poppadoms and shortly after finishing the food arrived, Well the... More

How wrong I was, the restaurant only had a few tables booked so was 2 thirds empty. The service and the food we received was first class. If only it was... More

We came over from Portsmouth to eat here again as it was fantastic before, good food and service within the last couple of months. However, right from the start things were out of kilter; we asked to sit in the window where we were last time and were told not possible as it was a four seater and it would... More

Over one hour wait for food, small portions, stale poppadoms, other customers walking out, my previous review was positive as we really enjoyed the visit this time was a unacceptable affair...manager stop cutting costs staff and portions I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
