Been this morning for breakfast, complimentary tea and coffee on the bar and full English breakfast including toast, just the right amount of food including toast, eggs your way as well, only downside was the tots was cold, but it didn't detract from the experience My tip would be, it opens at 9.30, and gets very busy very quickly as...

Stopped by with a couple of friends for lunch. Had a lovely bagel with skinny fries, delicious flavours and really attentive service from waiting staff. Heard good things about the steaks here, will be back to try them out! Definitely money well spent!

Went here on Mothers day and they only had the Mothers Day set menu. 2 courses for £24 and 3 for £28, so very expensive for what was basically a sunday roast. Not much choice, just Sunday roasts and a couple of other options. Really not worth £24 and the food is nothing special. Yorkshire puddings like eating cardboard. Have... More

On Saturday and Sunday mornings they offer breakfast in the bar area and it is well worth the effort to visit at these times. Note you can only reserve for parties of 6 or more, so getting a table is a bit of pot luck. The menu covers all the bases for breakfast, is very good, well presented and competitively... More

We first visited on the last sat of feb 15 in a group of 6 plus a highchair and baby. Staff took a long time to come and take our order and food took a long time to arrive. The starter of two rice balls were lovely but so overpriced. The main meal, a chicken burger was again small and... More

First visit to this popular, trendy, restaurant. I went with 5 friends and we booked for 6pm. For such a large place, the staff are very organised and welcoming. There is a good variety of dishes on the menu to suit most tastes. Overall the food was good, not spectacular, but perfectly acceptable. Our group was situated on a raised... More

We have been for drink in evening before, and heard good reports about the restaurant, we were not disappointed. Great family atmosphere with family party groups, good mix of ages. We had the Sunday roast with starters and puddings to complete. The meal was well prepared and served with attentive friendly staff. Great time had by the five of us.
