“Enjoyable Boxing Day lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We ate here on Boxing Day lunchtime. The Boxing Day menu offered a reasonable choice of dishes and the food was generally of the very high standard we have come to expect here. There were a couple of small disappointments: the white chocolate cheesecake didn't have much taste and the portion sizes seemed to vary between some of the dishes (huge piece of steak with lots of mash compared to four medallions of duck with a rosti cake). Service was excellent as usual - the waiting staff were friendly and very efficient.

“Not worth a visit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Dear all. Over the years we have visited this restaurant many times and up until the last couple of visits the food has been ok.
We recently visit again just before the Christmas rush. And for a change we ordered off their Christmas set menu,
What a mistake..... It was the worst meal I've eaten in many a long time, all the food tasted as if it was pre cooked days before hand,
The food was tasteless and unappetising, I told the waiter my thoughts and views on the food and all he seemed concerned with was cleaning his finger nails?

So my message to the management is
Buck up your ideas, your staff and the quality of your food, for the costs you guys are charging you should be the best in the borough but in reality there are far better restaurants close by in west wickham high street

“A good, casual place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This place is really jolly and relaxed. The food's good too. It's reasonably priced (particularly the set menu). You need to book as it's so popular.
If it's a formal, hushed tones, serious meal you're after go somewhere else.
This restaurant is loud, good fun and good food.
I'll be back!

“Birthday dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

My girls treated me to a birthday dinner last week here, and very pleasant it was too. The children's menu was absolutely fine for them, whilst grown-ups had very nice starters (sardines were excellent), an excellent lamb main course - the meat was superb - and a creme brulee to finish. Yummy.

I waddled out.

Service was fine, and the total bill was very reasonable given the amount of food we were served.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
