It took an hour and a half after we ordered the food and it didn’t taste that good. It definitely wasn’t worth the wait. Except for the beans. I was there with my 2 young cousins and it was a huge disappointment.

Terrible food,dirty place smells of toilets,expensive for frozen food. 7 adults all left our food not one member of staff if it was ok. If it was my pub/restaurant I would be worried if plates were as full as ours were after we had finished.

It's a very popular venue so I would say 'belt and braces' to book.
