Disliked the wide range of choice on the menu it made it hard to select from such a mouth watering list. Loved the Rib eye steak with bacon and blue cheese sauce.

We visited on a Friday night. Having read the reviews on here we were expecting good food and average service and that's exactly what we got! Couldn't fault our meals.

The staff are very friendly (especially Tanya) and we always get good service. On some occasions the filter coffee could be hotter but they are always happy to replace.

Once she finished the call, she continued to make additional notes in the... More

I've eaten here only once and in view of the unprepossessing exterior was impressed with the quality of the food and would be happy to go again, though not for a romantic evening.

My visit was on a very wet and windy Saturday afternoon and I feel 'wet and windy' is a good description for this place on this day. Staff not very welcoming, not giving good service. I only placed an order for 1 x tea, 1 x ice cream, 1 x coke and 2 home made biscuits. Was given half melted... More

We ate from the set menu which had plenty of choice on it. The starters came at a relaxed pace (nice ofr us as... More

We went in to be greeted after a few seconds by a friendly staff member who said it would be about half an hour for... More
