They have changed what was a great menu to one that is pretty hopeless! There are very limited choices and not very good ones at that. Very very disappointed with this.

staff working were very pleasant, but not enough staff working. My meal was not cooked, my mothers meal was a 'congealed mess'. Desserts were good. I noticed meals from 2 other tables also being returned. Waitress dealt with my complaint very efficiently.

It looked & tasted like a heated up frozen meal.... More

Poor quality food. 10oz Fillet steak advertised, but actual steak size received was considerably smaller than that. Although chips were home-made, my portion were undercooked, so I was biting through, greasy, raw potato.

I had the sirloin on the 1st night, I wanted to have it again but I had seen the lamb being served and it looked amazing. So on the 2nd night I had the lamb and boy was it good. On the 3rd night I had the fish which was so tasty and there was plenty of it. My 3... More

Our children also wanted steak and the very helpful waitress suggested sharing 1 which was a great idea. The deserts were to die for black forest gateaux, cheesecake. Great... More
