I ordered the chicken and rib combo. The meal was fabulously and very reasonable. The ribs just fell off the bone. Would definitely recommend.

Last visited a few years back on a winter Sunday evening and thought it to be one of the worst 'spoons I'd been to. However, on reflection it could have been due to the fact it was full of locals "of a certain type" who were off their heads and arguing for the majority of the time we spent there.... More

Very full, which must be good for business, but makes it very hard to get a table at peak times. Staff excellent, food good enough for me.

We both enjoyed our meals. You know what you should get, and we did. Fine. No complaints. The staff are friendly too. For their sake, we hope the place might be in for a bit of a refit in the not too distant future. It's looking a bit worn at the edges. That's because it's so popular and 'suffers' from... More

Arrived after eight on a Friday night having travelled from the Needles. The place was packed. Found a table upstairs, and made an order at the bar. Within around eight minutes, the food arrived. Hot and well prepared, served with a smile. The waitress returned 5 mins later to ensure all was well. The food is unpretentious, well proportioned and... More

Customer service can be improved. The duty manager was a bit rude. The food is cheap and quite good tho.

Been to this place a great number of times but that was ten years ago, at that time, the fois was all right. Been there today, and a great disappointment... Really low quality food with big plates but nothing in it... Hope an effort will be made soon....
