Visited this restaurant to make a change. It was dead (as many other reviews have mentioned) however you would have thought from the way the staff acted it was packed. They were disinterested and took 10 minutes before my husband managed to speak to anyone. Then a man, who i'm assuming was the manager, created a huge atmosphere by talking... More

We went with friends to celebrate a birthday. Tt was a good evening and everyone enjoyed their food from starters to mains although the lamb chops (which were succulent and tasty) were presented rather blandly i.e boiled rice and "pitta" bread (no colour to tempt the diner). However, that said the whole evening turned out well. The waiting staff and... More

Booked a table for a New Years Eve meal and live entertainment. Additional tables had been installed and all were fully occupied. Our allocated table was the closest to the stage. As the evening progressed additional people arrived including a group of single males. The additional tables meant the area for dancing was minimal and we soon became swamped with... More

This was the second time we had been to a Lounge entertainment event featuring Billy. Before he came on a 3 course festive meal was served. I would have preferred the normal evening menu, but what was served up was excellent both in execution and quality. The fresh asparagus that came with my main course of stuffed loin of pork... More

Our sons 18th Birthday weekend was rounded off with starters and roasts for 40 people . The food was scrumptious as usual and arrived hot without any fuss. Erich, Kelly and the team were attentive hosts and made all our family and friends very welcome. We would be hard pushed to find another venue for a special celebration that would... More

Not needing much lunch after a hearty Premier Inn breakfast, I contemplated buying a sandwich from Tesco, but walked on. Told Valentes had closed, but this has mutated into a more lounge bar type place with probably more people in the evenings, especially on party nights. However I was greeted warmly and the other customer was sociable. I ordered a... More
