“Mediocre Service and Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We came here as a wedding party on a very quiet week day about 1:30. There were a couple of other tables in the restaurant but that was it.

Service was slow, and frequently wrong. Food was OK but at least two of the steaks had to be sent back - rare is quite different to medium! I also got the worlds smallest portion of Gnocchi as a main.

I guess my overall feeling was lazy - the staff and the menu.

I won't be returning and don't recommend it.

“very good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

This is the first time i have been here and was pleasantly surprised at the value 2 course for 8.95 and 3 course for 10.95
I had prawn cocktail for starters and the prawns were gorgeous.
For mains i had the roast dinner though the portion wasnt that generous and they were a bit tight with the meat its understandable for the price.
For dessert i had the chocolate torte which was to die for,
All the staff were very friendly but this one lady who i dont know her name she was in her 50s and scottish was a lovely women who was friendly and even sat down and drew with our son she really is the making of that place.
Would defo recommend going. will go again

“Great food all round”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Three of us dined here on a Saturday night (two vegetarians). We all thoroughly enjoyed our starters, mains and desserts. I had the goats cheese tart and mushroom and stilton Wellington, perhaps I chose a rich combination, but both were really good. Overall a very enjoyable food experience.

“Don't Order the Sirloin”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I ordered the Sirloin Steak on a recent visit to the restaurant and asked for it to be cooked 'very rare'. When it arrived it was medium at best and very grisly. We've been their before and the food has been quite good, but each time we go back it deteriorates a little bit more.

“Good for the super 7”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

I visit the grille quite often for the early bird special with different groups of friends. The food is always lovely, service is sometimes a little slow but for £12ish for three courses of excellent quality food who cares? Will continue to return time after time.
