Poor quality food and service

As I expected little has improved since my last visit. Steaks served via a large platter rather than plated individually. Well done steaks sitting within the blood of rare steaks, onion rings also on platter with blood. This is very poor. Belly pork undercooked meat and over cooked crackling... read more

A party of 8 of us went for my Wife's birthday we booked a table up stairs paying more for the expected better service . Unfortunately this was not true . One of waiters was forgetful and quite (putting it plainly) miserable .

We were a party of 21 and found the staff coped very well as the rest of the place was very busy and a wedding party going on upstairs. Servings arrived in good time and no-one was kept waiting too long. Food was delicious.

15 of us celebrated my son in law's 50th Birthday and were seated upstairs on a very well laid out table. It was also Valentine's Day and they were very busy. We were surprised how effecient, capable and friendly the staff were and the service was second to none. It was a set menu with plenty of choice and all... More

Read many reviews on trip advisor about this establishment. So my first visit held no surprises, as expected the food was of a decent quality, but lacking in good service. Twenty two of us where booked in for a private party. This was held in a medium size room, tables where laid in a less than satisfactory manner, with a... More

We have been to this venue many times, however this visit took place on 14/02/15 at about 1700 without prebooking with a gift voucher we had received from our Grandaughter. We were warned that our time was limited due to the need for table to be available for some slightly later but that was ok for us. The meal and... More

We visited for a friends wedding. The food was piping hot and plentiful, surroundings lovely. Yes there was a problem with parking, but the wedding was on a Sunday, at lunchtime which says a lot for the service. The staff coped supremely well with an extremely busy day.

Looking at the reserved signs on the tables walking through it looks a very popular place to eat & glad that we had pre booked our table. 2 of our party had the roast beef Sunday lunch. Was plentiful &... More
