The kids meals looked like they had been sitting and corn on cobs were cold so had... read more

We attended this weekend for the frozen themed breakfast before our walk round the shopping centre. We got 2 adult breakfasts for £10 and the food was great. My son also enjoyed the themed morning. Really enjoyed it.

Visited the lime kiln several times and always been reasonably happy. Visited with the family today and although the food was ok the service was appalling. There were only 3 staff all running about like headless chickens bickering at each other. If I heard the manager say sorry once he said it 20 times to all diners at different times.... More

Hardly any staff working, half the menu was unavailable, the microwave in the kitchen more more than a u boats radar in World War Two. Dreadful experience.
