“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

I highly recommend you to AVOID bubs!

Poor service, no atmosphere and food tasted frozen and bought-in.

Will not be back!

“Saturday Kids offer makes this a good place for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Had heard from a few people that this was a nice place to go so ventured up with the junior of the critics (8 year old with a Subway habit) and decided to give it a spin. The restaurant was very quiet which was a little off putting but in we went. We both decided to go for a burger and fries and I chose the special which had Onion Rings, a fried egg and a few other goodies chucked on. Have to admit as a few dishes for other diners went past I started to look forward to mine arriving and wasn't disappointed when the burger arrived. Even a single burger was more than filling and the meat was beautiful and the toppings just right. The fries were tasty enough but the only downside with most fries is that they rarely taste homemade so come on Bubs give us proper chips. Junior enjoyed his kids meal (it was huge) and for a total of £14 for what was my meal and 2 drinks the free kids meal makes this a really good stop off in my eyes

“Worst dining experience ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Went to Bubs Sat night with my partner and friend. Should have known better when there were queues everywhere else in the complex except here. Arrived 7pm, drinks order and starters arrived promptly but it went totally own hill from there-on-in. Had to wait 50 mins between the starters and main courses. My partner ordered beef brisket. Was supposed to be accompanied by spicy beans and coleslaw, had to complain to the waitress. Even worse it was cold. My friend's meal and my own weren't much better, no flavour and a tiny bit of relish. 3 girls in front of us ordered drinks and had to wait so long they left. 4 other girls couldn't eat the main course as their food was burnt and cold. They refused to pay for the main course and I didn't pay for my partner's either. Felt sorry for the young girls who were serving with so many complaints being made as they were trying their best to be friendly and helpful. Not their fault. Asked to speak to the chef to complain about the waiting time and quality of food as did the other 4 girls at the table next to us, he said we had to wait so long as we had ordered starters and 4 other tables who were served before us hadn't. It was no excuse however for the cold food that was served accompanied by one miserable piece of lettuce. This is definitely the worst restaurant I've ever been to. We definitely won't ever be back.
