Used this place for 10 years and until 2014, it was well run and delivered value for the franchise. It has plummeted since the departure of the lady that ran it, with poor leadership, high staff turnover and no heating. The lease was due to run out in 2015 but has been extended for 2 years I believe. They should... More

Its a chain. You know the offer and they are consistent. Went midweek when too much effort to cook. And at £52 for 2 starters, 2 mains, house wine and mineral water, and a coffee you really cant complain. Not the most memorable meal you will ever eat, but definitely a place on the high street for this brand.

Our latest visit we were one of the last people in the restaurant and the staff were sitting two tables away having there dinner which I... More

My partner and I visited this South Croydon branch a couple of weeks ago on a quiet Monday evening at around 6.30pm. There were only about four other tables occupied but the service was abysmal. As we sat down, we noticed that there was rubbish on the floor in the surrounding areas. There is no excuse for this because the... More

The service was very slow, although the restaurant was virtually empty. In addition, they didn't have several of the ingredients of my salad, but didn't tell me so until it arrived. We used one of their high chairs which fits on the chair, but it didn't fit properly and was unsafe for the toddler to sit in. We had to... More

You know i really can't be bothered to go into all the ins and outs of my visit here. Suffice to say that typical of these Gondola Group owned chains, be prepared for poor service and an argument if you want to use any of their online discount vouchers. Mine was initially refused because the group i was with were... More
