Lovely mels and great venue

We have visited several times and regularly use this venue at least once a month, bringing family and friends. The venue has a great feel to it, decor is refreshing and exciting and we love the working juke box. We have always had a lovely meal here and the staff have been friendly. It is also... read more

Four of us had lunch we all had something different from the menu and were agreed that the quality and presentation of the food was very good. Tastefully decorated in black and grey furniture along the lines of a Diner. The service is a little slow but considering the good is prepared to order this should not be a surprise.

Great service, fantastic value, good food, 1950s juke-box playing fav songs. Great atmosphere. You can't book, so best to turn up early, then there isn't a queue. We've been a number of times.

Walked out 20 minutes after being seated because we were completely ignored. Only one other table occupied in the whole place. Staff were just hanging around, talking at the bar. Similar thing happened on Tuesday - we ate our mains, asked for dessert menus and then sat for more than 20 minutes trying to catch out server's eye whilst she... More

Food was good but the service was appalling!!! Quick enough to get our drinks order!! Waited ages to order our food then waited even longer for the food to arrive. Not funny when we had a 2 year old with us! After finishing our meal no one came to clear away our plates. We had to go and ask for... More

I love the 50s decor, it gives the place a response nice feel. The food is excellent and really good value for money. Only downside is sometimes the service is a little bit slow.

Arrived on a Monday evening, half price night so the place was rammed. Pleasant waitress and the food was beautiful, hot plentiful and good price. The desert was sooooooo lovely, I wished I had had a smaller main as it was hard fitting both in - but it would have been rude not to. Cup of tea was lovely and... More

Visited Monday lunchtime and found the Restaurant was very busy. Were shown to a table under the cold air conditioner which needed to be turned off - no big deal. Waited rather a long time for a waitress (20 minutes) to take our order. Waited another long time for the meal to be prepared (25 minutes). When it finally arrived... More
