This is a Beefeater which has a layout giving a nice feeling of space when you enter. For midweek it was very busy. Staff were pleasant, food was quick considering how busy it was but was only OK.

I have eaten here a few times over the last year or so and have always had a good meal. I last attended here in January and really enjoyed the food. I would recommend it.

Went there for breakfast as I was staying in the nearby Premier Inn and it was disgusting one of the hardest, greasiest breakfasts I’ve ever had. No point in using as there are many restaurants nearby where you would get much better food

When we arrived we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated and then when we finally got seated the service wasn’t the best. Had a long wait for food as we arrived at 1:15 and considering we ordered straight away had to wait until...More
