“What would we do without it?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We're lucky enough to be in walking distance and we visit once or twice a month. It never fails to amaze me how busy it always is there, but how easily the staff take it in their stride. We always find the service friendly and efficient. As for the food, it's always of a good standard and always plentiful. For us the only small downside is that the decor is a little dated now (we've been going over twelve years and no change). The bread basket deserves a mention all of its own - worth the trip just for that. In summary, well run and top quality.

“Lovely decor, food disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We have been to this restaurant several times as it is very local to us, and have always felt the same - the restaurant is beautifully decorated and furnished but the food is distinctly average. On one occasion we were served disgusting microwaved new potatoes that were 'squidgy' and inedible. Maybe it has improved since our last visit in June 2011, but we are in no hurry to return.
