“Very poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

You should not visit. Staff were okay, but you get better food in mcdonalds. It was truly the worst burger, fish and pie we have ever had. I wouldn't even serve that slop to my dog. So angry, paid and walked. Never will return

“The staff were good, but....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

I couldn't fault the staff, but the food was horrible cheap muck, I didn't touch my main meal £14:95 just looking at it made me feel ill. I have to admit the other 5 diners at the table ate theirs and said it was ok, but I like freshly home cooked food.

“Great Food, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Have eaten here several times with friends. Food is always spot on, hence the reason my friends and I return time and time again. Staff are friendly, service good, food is amazing and reasonably priced.

“OK but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Great position and really nice staff but the food can be a bit hit and miss. Lovely spot for a quiet beer on a sunny day and the coffee is excellent.Will give another go.
