“Awful!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Having been here before my husband hasn't so we decided to go wish we didn't !! We got a spot in the corner with the children and it was cozy only when we went to order that's when it started ,the foreign lady behind the bar
Was very rude when ordered are drinks kept sighing and when we did order just spoke like we was crap basically !!! Not enough staff I think ,we ordered are food only to be sat there for 40 mins when the young guy came and told us there was no burgers left ( I mean come on ) you sort this before hand ,so having to pick again the guy was really sorry n I did feel sorry for him as he just didn't have a clue !! Again we ordered a chicken burger when we got it we didn't have are sides so we called back again to be told sorry again ,the kids meal was hardly anything there ,probs better with a adults !!! The chicken burger wasn't a chicken burger it was a dry burn chicken fillet ,me and my husband didn't even eat it ,with that we left and didn't even hang around for ice cream we couldn't go quick enough !!! Never again will we go back !!!

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

A good choice of food at a reasonable price. The menu contains ample choice for anyone to pick and food is of good quality. The only downside on the night we visited was a longer than usual wait.

“Typical sizzler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

Had the Indian platter was nice but not really what you go for in a sizzler
avoid the garlic bread as its cooked on the meat grill and came out burnt
Ice cream sundae was lush apart from my burnt piece of cake

“GREAT FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We were staying at Cala Gran and went to the Gardeners for dinner last Tuesday.The meals we had were really good and piping hot,i had a steak and chicken combo and my wife had smothered chicken,both were cooked as we like and very tasty and we thought they were good value for the money.
We like this pub,it is quite roomy and easy to get a seat,the staff all are friendly and the service was good,definitely worth a visit.
