Hit & Miss

Hit & miss really. Not as busy as what they used to be. Not sure if 'Eat Street' at Watergardens has affected their business. We were served large, filling portions and there were a lot of gluten free options available, which was a bonus for one member of our party. Just lacking any real... read more

Called to make a booking, owner advised me they were booked out but to come in and he would squeeze us in, we came and had a drink at the bar whilst they made room for us. Food was delicious and staff were happy to help. Will be back

Had dinner on a week night and it was quite busy on one side of the restaurant. The staff were quick to sit us down, take our orders and drinks came through in a dash complete with wine tasting before it was tipped in our glasses. Impressive presentation of mains and good tasting too. Price was not cheap but not... More

Booked our valentines dinner here, first impressions were good we got a warm welcome, once we were shown to our table 15 mins later our drinks order was taken, then shortly after our set meal was ordered. We struggled to get more drinks during the night so decided to order a bottle of champagne to make sure we had something,... More

A quaint English pub set in a country atmosphere gives a warm feeling to the place. There are plenty of points of interest in the decor to spark dinner conversation. My last visit wasn't the best though, really let down by the poor appearance of staff. They seemed less than professional in very casual attire but I must say the... More

Ate here in February this year (2014). Had a lovely meal. Went again last week... what a difference 9 months can make... It was VERY disappointing indeed... especially after I had given it such a glowing reference to my dinner companions. I was embarrassed. It was a Friday night and the restaurant was almost deserted, which should have been a... More

Worst food we've had for a long time. We were wondering why the place was deserted on a Sunday Lunch, now we know why. Dirty, dusty and outdated. Also both felt sick in the guts the following morning. Never Again.
