Lovely lunch

I have visited this restaurant a number of times for breakfast and lunch and the staff have always been friendly and helpful. Food good and presented well, not over priced. If you just want a coffee they will oblige, but ideal for breakfast or lunch.

I visited to lounge quite often, whether it be for chilled drinks, birthday celebrations, entertainment or comedy nights and I have recently started working there as a part time front of house whilst I look for full time childcare work. I have always loved the lounge and found the staff and owners welcoming and friendly and couldn't do enough for... More

This family run restaurant is very welcoming and the menu looks Turkish or Greek.The decor is not cosy and lacks atmosphere. The food arrived very quickly and the starter,cheese stuffed filo rolls was tasty but the main course of chicken skewers with rice was very greasy and had a fast food feel. We would not return again as it felt... More

Management and staff alway greet existing customers (and new) as if they are old friends. We visited yesterday as a birthday treat for daytime snacks and drinks and,... More

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
