“Will never eat here again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

We ordered the carvery no explanation from staff that carvery had finished, got a small dish of over cooked veg, burnt potatoes and dried out beef. It was awful, the staff were not at all friendly or bothered that we were not happy. The place was very quiet that should have been a clue. Not very clean or inviting needless to say we won't be going again and as we were treated so poorly we will not recommend to anyone either.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

A mediocre lunch, nothing particulary special, the staff were friendly enough but it did not make us want to return or recommend.

“Food was just edible, atmosphere and decor was horrendous”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011 via mobile

Difficult to find the entrance and the outside state of the building was scruffy and dirty, finally found the entrance before being pushed out of the way by two extremely drunk men who very rude and confrontational, the decor inside was halfway between a greasy spoon and a youth club. we ordered 2 gammon steaks which i thought was very expensive at 25 quid for a lunchtime, the food was just ok but we definately wont be going back.

we ordered 2 lasagne and 1 steak pie the salad with the lasagne was brown and tierd and the meat in the pie was dry. we complained and the staff gave the impression of could not care less with not even an apology. this is not the way to keep your customers only way to sum up the riverside very poor
