“Above average for a chain restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Compared to most chain restaurants this has a little something extra, but it is at heart a chain restaurant! The prawns as a starter were lovely and well cooked, the steak was cooked as asked, nice and pink, but was quite chewy. Overall a nice meal, but nothing to rave about. I guess you get what you pay for.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Our starter was delivered to the wrong table and left there for about 5 minutes before it was redirected to our table. Did not order dessert even though I was still hungry.
Serving staff need more training!
Staff could have been more friendly and attentive.
Would not rush back.
Strada in Milton Keynes is much nicer.

“Lovely early evening meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Dined here July 31st, My daughter and myself booked an early evening slot here with a £10 off 2 main meals voucher.
From entering until leaving we were very well looked after, not rushed or pushed into ordering anything we didn't want. We were offered water (along side our wine ) and were not pushed in to buying expensive bottled water but offered tap water which was great!
Our food was very nice, plenty of it and presented well.
The wine ...all 2 glasses of it was the most expensive thing on the bill! Its definitely better to buy by the bottle if you want more than 1 glass each!!
All in all a pleasant dining experience with good food and service. Will certainly be returning

“New menu is poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten here twice in the last month and the service was constantly good both times. The restuaraunt has a nice atmosphere. The only thing that lets this down is the new menu which is very limited and doesn't have your more traditional pizzas. The dessert selection is also poor for a cream hater.

“Emperor's new clothes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Waitress pleasant, but showed no knowledge of what she was serving so was unable to understand that what was served didn't live up to the menu explanation. One main dish was lukewarm and the chocolate fondant didn't ooze so she offered another without understanding what was really wrong.
