“Family Friendly with Fabulous Food and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We arrived late on a busy New Years Eve for dinner with 3 kids and no booking. We were seated straight away and enjoyed delicious and beautifully prepared mains possibly the best meal I have had in awhile) whilst the kids had hand stretched pizzas and chips - not the usual chicken nugget rubbish you get. The kids had access to the outdoor lawn area complete with playground and outdoor sports equipment to burn off some energy before and after dinner which left us time to relax. The meals were quick to arrive on such a busy night and the staff were friendly and attentiive throughout. I highly recommend to families.

“pizza night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

we went as a family with children and a baby to the pizza nite special.
It was full up and very busy and even though we booked a table we had to wait about 15 mins, which was rather hectic with all the kids.
we also found that after ordering they told us our dinner was going to take 45 mins to come out!!!!!!!
feel they are running these nights a little low on kitchen staff and wait staff, wasnt very impressed!
